Top Priority after a Car Accident: Medical Treatment
It’s critical that you visit your local emergency room as soon as possible after your car accident. Then, it’s important to follow up with your primary physician. We can also help you find a medical doctor or chiropractor if you do not already have one.
If you believe your injuries are minor, it’s still wise to seek treatment in the event you begin to experience new or worsening symptoms a few days after the accident.
As your attorney, we are looking for strong points in your case; conversely, the insurance company is looking for weaknesses in your case and one argument they often use is that there was a “gap in treatment.” This occurs when a person does not seek medical attention in a reasonable time following an accident. For example, someone is involved in an accident and they wait a month before going to the doctor. That would be considered a gap in treatment. Even if you have a gap in treatment, we can still provide you with aggressive legal representation.
If you or a loved one has been involved in an accident, call the Merritt & Merritt Law Firm today at 404-975-1775. Our Smyrna injury and car accident attorneys are here to walk you through the process.
