When in an auto accident, , it is important to get at least a medical exam right away, especially in a rear end collision.
Soft tissue damage or whiplash does not always manifest itself right away.
We can’t tell you how many folks tell us the day of accident, that they do not feel any pain. The body can go into shock right after an accident, shutting down to compensate for pain, and therefore masking the pain so it is not felt immediately.
Without a visit to a hospital or medical doctor within 14 days of the accident, your claim may be compromised or at least not taken seriously by an insurance company.
