Unfortunately, once in a while, someone you or someone you know will get into a car accident. The most important thing is to not panic, get out of the car and make sure you’re okay make sure your friends and family that were driving with you are okay and make sure the other driver is okay too. Once that happens, let’s get all our ducks in a row. What you want to do is take the picture of all the cars that are around. Take a picture of your car, and the car that hit you. If it is a multiple car pile-up, you want to keep everything documented. The other thing is you want to take pictures of yourself.
Bruises, cuts, or maybe you have a broken arm or bones! Whichever it is, make sure you take a picture of yourself, or your friends for that matter. The other thing is, start documenting from day one to about two months in on how you feel? Not all symptoms show up on day one or instantly. So its important to document how you are feeling each to day to keep track of symptoms that may show up later.
If you have any neurological problems, for an example maybe you have anxiety or you noticed your memory is not the same as it was before. Maybe your noticing that your arms are going numb or even burning. Whatever it is, keep a documented record of all that information. It might become important if the case goes to court. It doesn’t always end up going to court, but is best to have this information and not need it than need it and not have it.
Also, make sure you get checkout out by a professional. It could be a chiropractor, it could be a medical doctor or family doctor It could be the emergency room and it can also be urgent care. Whichever it is, it is important to get checked out. You can also come to Discover Health and Wellness Uptown. We’ll make sure to document and give you all the necessary information as well. In any case, just make sure you get checked out. If you have any questions please don’t hesitate to reach out to us or schedule a consultation.
