Most people think after a car accident, if you were injured, it would be obvious. While of course, something like a broken bone or a deep cut is visible almost immediately, other injuries can be more subtle. Things such as swelling and other effects of trauma don’t become obvious till hours, sometimes even days later. It’s common for people to feel 100% fine after an accident. Your adrenalin is rushing and masks the pain you should be feeling. When people notice they have been injured after their accident, they feel like they have no legal recourse. However, this isn’t true. Below we’ll go over the steps you should take if you find yourself in this situation.

Medical Evaluation

After being in an accident, its always a good idea to get an evaluation from an EMT, even if you feel fine. Emergency responders might be able to notice injuries, like soft tissue damage, right after the accident. Of course, EMT’s aren’t doctors and don’t have the equipment to test for everything that could possibly go wrong after an accident. That’s why you should schedule an evaluation with your primary healthcare provider as soon as possible. Getting an assessment with your doctor will be able to provide you with proof that you were harmed, or not. Its always better to be safe, than sorry. Make sure you take all the precautions you can to ensure nothing goes unnoticed.

I Was Injured. Now What?

After finding out you did sustain an injury, the insurance companies will be rushing to get you to settle for less than you deserve. The last thing you want after being harmed is to be taken advantage of by the insurance companies trying to save a few dollars. You should seek out an experienced personal injury attorney. A personal injury lawyer in San Antonio will be able to help you through this difficult process, and advocate on your behalf to the insurance companies, to ensure you get what you deserve.
