Even if you think your work injury is minor, you should seek medical treatment. The shock from an accident could mask your symptoms initially and you could find out later that you were actually injured. If you need to file an injury claim in the future, your chances are higher if a medical record is created sooner rather than later.
Any gap in medical treatment could significantly harm your case if you discover that you were injured later on after the shock and confusion of the crash has worn off. The insurance company for the at-fault party will use any delay in treatment to claim that your injuries are not as serious as you claim. Visiting a doctor right away, regardless of how you feel, could mitigate their claims and establish that you were actually hurt in the crash.

While your lawyer works on building a strong injury on your behalf, you must show up for your regularly scheduled appointments. Your medical records are a crucial piece of evidence showing a prior incident didn’t cause your injury. It also provides a detailed timeline of when you sustained the injury, and how often your physician recommended your treatments.
Even if you decide not to pursue an insurance claim or lawsuit immediately after the accident, keeping a record of essential information could help you in the future. When you’re ready to take legal action, the documentation you save could prove useful in receiving financial compensation.
