You do not want to tank your work injury or motor vehicle injury case with your own thoughtless acts.
Do not follow the example of the person who was hurt on the job, but failed to go to the doctor for over 6 months and did not tell the doctor he was injured at work.
It is not enough to tell your work that you were injured, and then not seek immediate medical care.
The insurance company and ultimately the Judge will look at delay in medical treatment as meaning it is not related to the original accident.
If the treatment is not related, then no medical bills will be paid and a minimal amount will be paid for the original injury.
Do not follow the example of the lady who treats with her doctor shortly after her injury, and does not tell the doctor that she was injured at work or in a motor vehicle collision.
Insurance companies and Judges review medical records closely for histories explaining when, where and how the injuries occurred.
If you do not have medical records that note the details of the accident, then you will most likely lose your case.
