Seek Medical Help ASAP Following an Accident

Seek medical attention immediately following a motor vehicle accident.  Most obviously, if left untreated, serious infections or medical conditions can rapidly worsen and become life-threatening.  Equally important, seeing a doctor helps ensure that your injuries will be eligible for insurance reimbursement.  Also, to receive personal injury protection (PIP) coverage, you may have a limited amount of time (known as a statute of limitations) – between 72 hours and two weeks – to see an approved doctor after an accident. If you receive treatment from a non-approved doctor, your claim may be denied, or your auto insurance may refuse to cover treatment costs.
