We are doing a series on what to do when involved in a car accident. First we are going to cover when to seek medical attention. 

The first thing you should do when in a car accident in Folsom is seek medical treatment for injuries you have suffered. If you wait and delay treatment, insurance companies are more likely to deny your claim and allege that your injuries are not related to the car accident.

It is very important that you tell your doctor about every part of your body that has been injured or is in pain.  Don’t try to be tough–it is crucial that your injuries from the car accident are medically documented from an early stage.

Provide as much detail as you can with respect to each and every part of your body that hurts.  This will also ensure that your personal injury attorney has the information necessary to represent you accurately in future negotiations or a lawsuit.

The next in the series for posts is going to be on what notes to take at the scene of an accident. Click here to read more.
