If you are injured due to someone else’s negligence, go to the hospital right away, even if your injuries aren’t severe. Not only is seeking immediate medical attention the best choice for your health, it’s also in your best interest to get official documentation of your injury immediately. Even if your injuries don’t seem severe, you should see a doctor right away because some internal injuries may not be apparent immediately. Furthermore, your condition right after the accident can serve as a baseline as your case proceeds. Provide your doctor with a complete description of where and how the accident occurred, and what parts of your body were injured.
