Hey, everybody! My name is Megan and I work for Evergreen Surgical. Today, I’m here to talk to you about the three reasons why you need to seek treatment immediately after getting in an auto accident.

1. Diagnosis and treatment of your injury

First and foremost, the most important reason to seek treatment immediately is to diagnose, manage, and treat the injury right away. Getting proper imaging and evaluation is going to help get you feeling better as soon as possible and prevent further injuries down the road.

2. Reduce the gap in care

The second reason why you should seek treatment immediately after your auto accident is to reduce the gap in care.

When you have a large gap in your treatment from your accident and getting treatment, the insurance companies are going to argue that you’re not very injured since you waited so long to seek treatment. This is not going to build a strong case in your favor, and insurance companies are going to try to minimize your settlement.

Not having a gap in care will build a stronger case, prove that you’re injured and are in pain, and you’re going to maximize your settlement in the end.

3. Tap into funding resources right away

We know that reaching out and getting this process started might be a little bit intimidating and you might be hesitant to do so, but do know that there are resources out there to help pay for some of the financial costs right away such as med pay on your car insurance will help pay for some of those initial evaluations and appointments.

There are funding companies out there that will help pay for any medical procedures you might need, and inquiring with an attorney is free until your case is settled.

As always if you have any questions we’re here to support you, so feel free to reach out!
