If you are injured in a motor vehicle accident (MVA), promptly seek medical attention. If you need immediate medical attention, call or ask for an ambulance. Be sure to mention every place on your body you think you have been injured to the on-the-scene law officers, EMTs, or at the hospital. Some pain and symptoms do not come on immediately, so do not worry if you have more once you reach the hospital.
Never fake an injury.
Always follow medical advice. If you don’t, your personal injury case will have a lower monetary value. If you can’t keep a medical appointment, call ahead and reschedule. Don’t just not show up because your medical records will say “no show” and that will lower the value of your personal injury case.
Do not fail to get medical treatment because you are afraid of the bills. If you own, are operating, or riding in an insured vehicle, or a pedestrian struck by an insured vehicle, you have at least $4,500.00 in medical expense insurance coverage in the motor vehicle policy with no deductibles or co-pays. Once the $4,500.00 is used up, your health insurance, if you have it, takes effect. Rockwell Law Firm will provide you free advice on how to deal with medical bills.
