Following up on medical care after a car accident

Accident victims who don't follow up on their doctor's treatment plan after a car accident may end up hurting themselves twice. First, their injury can get worse rather than better. Secondly, the insurance company responsible for paying for the injured person's damages may refuse to pay for future treatment.

Not following up on medical care is one of the biggest mistakes you can make after a car accident injury. It's important to continue treatment until you either fully recover from your injury or you recover as fully as possible.

Not following up on medical care is one of the biggest mistakes you can make after a car accident injury. It's important to continue treatment until you either fully recover from your injury or you recover as fully as possible.

There are many reasons why people discontinue medical treatment after an accident. Here are some examples:

  • They don't feel their condition is improving.
  • They don't want to miss work.
  • The treatment is costly, even with insurance.

If your injury was caused by someone else's negligence, then their insurance company is responsible for paying for your medical bills and other damages when your case is resolved. However, if you discontinue treatment, the insurance company will assume you are no longer injured. As a result, your case will be worth less.

If you don't continue medical treatment, a minor health problem can become a major problem. You may find yourself dealing with chronic pain that makes it difficult to work and do the things you enjoy. You may need future surgery. Unfortunately, the insurance company is likely to claim that any future medical care you need is not due to the accident, since you discontinued treatment.
