When Should I Go To The Doctor After a Car Accident in Michigan?

If you are injured in a Michigan auto accident, our Michigan car accident lawyer advises you seek medical attention as soon as possible.

In addition to insuring your health is a priority, immediate follow-up with a doctor will also provide official documentation of your injuries. This evidence will be key to your being fairly compensated for the damages that resulted from the car accident.

In other words, if you do not seek proper medical treatment immediately following an auto accident, and it results in the worsening of your injury, then you are not entitled to receive compensation for your worsened condition.
