When Should I Go To The Doctor After A Car Accident?

Answer: After an accident, if you believe that you are injured or may be injured, you should go to a doctor as soon as possible. Delaying medical evaluation and treatment often subjects your subsequent insurance claim to additional investigation and denial. While some symptoms from an auto accident may not arise for a day or two or a week or two after the accident, it is always preferable to go to your health care provider sooner rather than later. Not only does a delay negatively effect your claim, it also may jeopardize your health and prompt recovery.
