If I feel fine after an accident, should I still see a doctor?

After an accident, the stress we feel stimulates adrenaline production, which masks the pain. It is common for road accident victims to feel fine right after the incident but feel tremendous pain hours later. Aside from pain, there are many other serious injuries that you can sustain after a car crash, traumatic brain injury being one of them. Unlike direct trauma to the bones or spinal cord, TBI often doesn’t present symptoms straight away. You may be asymptomatic after the accident, but you could be hemorrhaging internally, and that delay in diagnosis could cost you permanent damage to the brain.

You might be entitled to a claim if you’ve sustained a traumatic brain injury because of someone else’s fault. Another reason to see a doctor is so that you can obtain additional evidence to have a valid case. Your medical record right after the incident is strong proof that the accident caused the injury. A skilled brain injury attorney can help you get the maximum compensation you deserve. I highly suggest checking out this link if you live in California.
