What If I Did Not Leave The Scene Of My Maryland Car Accident In An Ambulance? Can I Go To The Hospital On My Own The Next Day?

If you are hurt, you must be seen by a doctor.



My standard advice is: if you think you're hurt, you should absolutely be seen by a doctor. I've had countless people tell me over the years that the full extent of their symptoms didn't manifest for one, two, and sometimes three days after an accident. Particularly in a rear-end accident, it is not at all unusual for someone not to notice symptoms or to have problems until the following day, even sometimes two days thereafter. If you feel pain in any part of your body, if you're not able to do things that you were able to do before the accident, you should absolutely get yourself checked out by a medical professional.My advice here is not to wait. Don't give the insurance company a chance to say that person wasn't hurt because they weren't getting medical attention promptly.

I hope this addressed your question. Over the course of 25 years, I've found that fully addressing a legal question is best handled in a one-on-one, in person strategy and case analysis conference. I offer these to potential clients on a complimentary basis. Please use any of the methods under the contact tab at the top of the page to arrange yours.
