Medical Care After an Accident

Tips for Accident Victims

At Rittgers & Rittgers, the well-being of the people we represent is extremely important to us. Getting medical care after a car accident can be tricky, and the quest is made more challenging by insurance company tactics that could jeopardize your ability to get full and fair compensation. To help you get started, our Cincinnati attorneys provide these tips.

Get Medical Care Immediately

This may seem obvious, but there are situations where an injury does not seem as bad as it turns out to be. Waiting to see your doctor can not only jeopardize your ability to recover completely, but it also opens a window of opportunity for the insurance company to argue that “your injuries must not have been bad if you didn’t see your doctor right away.”

Tell Your Doctor Everything

Many car accident victims find themselves with multiple symptoms. Make sure that you communicate all of them to your doctor and that your doctor addresses them all. What may seem minor now may prove to be major later. We recommend writing down all of your injuries and concerns before seeing your doctor.

Do Not Sign Anything From Any Insurance Company

After an Ohio car accident, you may be contacted by the other driver’s insurance company. You may also be contacted by your own insurance company about med-pay. Do not sign anything before you discuss your case with us. In some instances, it may be better to use your health insurance, rather than your auto insurance’s med-pay.
