IT IS IMPORTANT TO SEE A DOCTOR AND YOU DO NOT HAVE TO PAY FOR IT OUT OF YOUR OWN POCKET
Another thing the insurance companies won’t tell you about is that if you are not seeing a doctor after your accident, the insurance company won’t say anything at first because they don’t really want to pay for your seeing a doctor. However, when it comes time to resolve the case, the fact that you did not have follow up care with a doctor or physical therapy, even though you were having some problems, will mean that your continuing injury has not been “documented”, and the insurance company will suggest to you that you are not entitled to compensation because your injury was not documented by a doctor.
The insurance company will also not tell you that if you are represented by an attorney, you can probably obtain medical treatment without having to pay anything at all out of pocket as you are being treated. The attorney will make sure that any unpaid bills are ultimately paid by the insurance company and that means you don’t have to pay anything now or take any risks that you might ever have an unpaid bill to worry about.
