Should I Go to the Hospital? - Zirkin and Schmerling Law

Should I Go to the Hospital?

Whether or not you go to the hospital depends on your injuries, but it’s important to seek medical care as quickly as possible after you’re injured. Make your health a priority. Any delay in treatment can later be used as evidence against you, as if to say, “See? Your injuries weren’t so bad. You didn’t even see a doctor right away.”

By going to the hospital, you not only start the road to recovery, but also start a paper trail that includes a doctor’s diagnosis, medical bills, insurance paperwork, and more. It’s one of the best ways to gather the evidence you’ll need later to claim injury compensation.
