We get frequent calls asking “should I hire an attorney or handle my claim on my own if my injuries are minor?” As a general rule of thumb, you have a claim if you have sustained serious enough injuries that require real, legitimate treatment after an accident. This includes treatment beyond an initial visit with your family doctor. For example, if you were transported from the scene to the ER or urgent care facility that is generally enough to pursue a claim. It also includes cases involving follow up treatment with a physical therapist, chiropractor, or even in some cases, psychological treatment. However, this can fluctuate depending on the severity of the collision, fault for the collision and the extent of damages to your vehicle.
If you have been injured by an 18-wheeler, car or motorcycle accident, it is important to receive medical attention as soon as possible to get checked out. Your health is the number one priority. It is always better to hear that you are healthy and have not sustained any injuries, then to learn down the road that you have sustained amore serious injury, and due to lack of treatment or gap in treatment, The insurer is denying your claim. Even worse, you later learn that what you thought would resolve over time now requires surgery. My recommendation is always to document your initial complaints immediately after an accident. That way you don’t get caught in the “cycle of denial” by the insurance company. Trust me they will for any reason to deny your claim!
