How Soon Should I See a Doctor After an Auto Accident?

Representing Orlando, the Four Corners, Tampa and Nearby Areas of Florida

One of the most important things to do after a car crash is checking yourself and any passengers for injuries. Auto accidents can lead to everything from bruises and cuts and broken bones to severe trauma affecting the head, neck, and other vital areas.

Even if you don’t feel injured, it’s important to be evaluated by a doctor as soon as possible after the accident. The symptoms of some injuries aren’t immediately apparent in the wake of a collision, and the crash could aggravate a preexisting condition. In addition, you must see particular types of doctors for evaluation of an emergency medical condition within the first 14 days after a Florida auto accident. Not doing so puts you at risk of losing thousands of dollars in automobile insurance benefits.
