If you have been involved in a car accident, it is likely that you sustained minor or major injuries. If you have been hurt, it is important that you seek medical care right away. Many conditions only get worse with time, and taking care of an injury right away will be cheaper in the long run. If the accident you were involved in was caused by another person, it may be possible to obtain funds for your medical bills and other costs by filing a personal injury lawsuit.

I am very pleased with how fast and diligently they worked on my case. They referred me to great Doctors and Therapist that worked with me and help accommodate my needs. Even going as far as having them send transportation to get me to and from an appointment.

Immediate Versus Long-Term Care

Injuries often require immediate care. Whether you are suffering from a minor concussion or internal bleeding, you should always seek medical care after you are involved in an accident. While all injuries need to be looked at when they are sustained, some need to be observed for weeks, months, or even years. If, for example, your neck was injured in a car accident, it may be necessary for you to stop in for monthly checkups. The nerve damage in your neck might slowly get worse, leading to chronic pain and other unwanted side effects. Other injuries that can result in needing long-term care include temporary or permanent paralysis, concussions, broken bones, internal bleeding, and loss of a limb.

If you Cannot Pay for Medical Care

If you have been injured in a car accident and you do not have insurance, you may be worried about how you will pay for your medical expenses. Regardless of your status, you should report to a hospital right away if you have sustained an injury that requires medical care. You will not be denied care if you cannot pay right away.

If the accident was not your fault, you may be able to pay for your expenses by filing a personal injury lawsuit. Losses that are often compensated in this type of civil action include medical expenses and pain and suffering, making it possible for you to pay for your medical bills shortly after you receive care.
