Q: How does waiting to see a doctor impact your Florida car accident claim?
A: Waiting to see a doctor in a Florida car accident claim can have some effect on the amount of a settlement in a case. It’s best if you feel pain or discomfort at the scene of an accident to go to the emergency room so your complaints can be lodged at least on a medical record. However, many people feel pain at the scene of an incident or don’t feel pain for a couple of days and decide to give it a chance to see if the condition will disappear in a few. That’s understandable. Many times an insurance company will use that against you and say well if the injury wasn’t so bad at the beginning, or in fact if the person didn’t feel any pain at the beginning, well yes perhaps a few days later a sprain or a strain arose but that it couldn’t possibly be a lifelong, permanent condition. That’s why waiting to see a doctor sometimes will affect an insurance company’s view of how significant the injury you sustained is.
