If you have been injured in a
car accident, yet you failed to seek medical attention afterwards, you are probably
wondering how that is going to affect your claim. As the victim of a car
accident caused by another person's negligence, carelessness or reckless
abandon, you may be eligible to seek damages to cover past and future
medical costs, vehicle repairs, loss of income or earning capacity, emotional
distress, pain and suffering, as well as a number of other accident-related
expenses. Failing to seek medical attention after a car accident will
significantly reduce your chances of being able to prove the injuries
you sustained were caused in the accident.
If you are unable to prove this fact, you will not be able to seek compensation
from the liable party and his or her insurance company. In this type of
situation, the liable party will likely argue that if your injuries were
in fact caused in the car accident then you would have had to get medical
attention right away. Neglecting to see a doctor after your car accident
could result in you receiving a lower settlement than you rightfully deserve
or you may end up having to pay for your own medical costs out of pocket.
