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.
