Most of us living in America are good, honest and hardworking citizens. Here in the South, our common nature is to avoid complaining and to instead try and avoid creating unnecessary concern and hardship over us (“no need to fuss over me”). Under ordinary circumstances, these are wonderful traits.
However, when it comes to making sure you are given the benefit of everything you should receive from an accident claim, these admirable qualities can very definitely work against the accident victim. Medical treatment for accident-related injuries should be sought out immediately because any delay may invite the notion that something other than the accident caused the problem.
So, if you are the type of person to sit home stoically trying to avoid seeking out medical help, you may find that by the time you do show up to your doctor with complaints of pain and discomfort it may be too late to reliably associate them with the recent accident trauma. Insurance companies may work hard to avoid paying for your injuries by insisting that the delay in treatment means that you must have been hurt in some way other than the accident.
