Should I wait to go see a Doctor after my auto accident?
NO, absolutely do not wait to see a doctor after a motor vehicle accident. If you wait, it may end up costing you thousands of dollars in medical later. You may have an underlying soft tissue injury. Soft tissue injuries and symptoms of whiplash may take up to a few days to show after an accident.
These injuries do not resolve on their own, so waiting only prolongs your pain. Additionally, waiting to see a doctor is called a gap in medical care. Most insurance companies will look at your records to compare the date of accident versus the amount of time it took you to seek treatment. They may deny your claim to injury. Go to your auto accident doctor immediately following your car accident whether you suspect injury or you have been injured.
Will I have to pay out of my pocket to go see a Doctor?
If you were not at fault in the car accident and you received a claim number there is no out of pocket expense to see a doctor. The liable party is responsible to pay for your medical treatment. If you are a victim of a hit and run, or were at fault in an accident, there is still another option for you to use.
If you have auto insurance you may Med-Pay (Medical Expense Benefits). Call your car insurance company and see if you have Med-Pay. If you do not have claim number or Med-Pay, you can still use your standard health insurance to cover your treatment.

Do I need good documentation by my Doctor?
Doctor documentation is the proof of your injury. Attorneys specializing in Personal Injury will confirm this. If there is little or no documentation, it will prove difficult to receive the settlement you deserve. Extensive and detailed documentation is a critical asset to your auto accident case. Your lawyer will need to provide sufficient medical records to prove your injury during the litigation process. Dr. Golinsky is experienced with the documentation requirements.
