If I Feel Fine After a Car Accident, Should I Still See a Doctor?

Video Transcription

If you feel absolutely fine [ after a car accident ], it’s probably not necessary to go talk to a doctor. However, if you have any problems whatsoever, you should call and at least get checked out.

Many injuries don’t become more severe and symptomatic until a day or two after. It’s very, very important to put on record any complaints or problems you have immediately.

Sometimes it’s a long tail to the injuries, and by reporting it close to the event, it makes it a lot easier later to connect the dots between your problems physically, and the accident that caused them.
