Do not hesitate
First and foremost, you should seek medical attention. Without it, your injury could get worse. Also, any lawsuit is built around medical bills– if you fail to see a doctor, there will be no way to document how badly you’ve been hurt, and how long you might be out of work. What’s more, a delay in doing this– could complicate your insurance claim. They view a delay in treatment as suspicious and could allege that you were never injured in the first place.
There are other legal reasons to avoid delay in your claim. The obvious example is the statute of limitations. Every lawsuit must be filed before it expires. For these accidents, the statutory period expires one year. Should you fail to file your case on time, the court could prevent you from ever recovering monetary damages.
