Do I Need To Get Medical Assistance After A Motorcycle Crash Even If I Only Have Minor Injuries?

    Do I Need To Get Medical Assistance After A Motorcycle Crash Even If I Only Have Minor Injuries?

In order to make a claim for injuries sustained in an Illinois motorcycle accident, you will need to provide evidence of your injuries. This is generally done by presenting medical records and bills as part of the settlement negotiation process.

If you have been injured at all, it is usually a good idea to see a doctor to ensure that there are not injuries that may be more serious. Some types of injuries, such as head trauma, back and neck injury and even whiplash may not fully show their symptoms for days, weeks and even longer. A thorough medical examination may uncover underlying injuries that you need to be aware of before trying to settle your accident claim.

Bear in mind that once you settle the injury portion of a motor vehicle accident case, you cannot have the case ‘reopened’ or ‘reevaluated’. You have one opportunity to either resolve your case with an insurance company or to present your case to a jury. Regardless of the outcome, it is important to recognize that the window of opportunity for recovery is brief and it is in your best interest to present the most favorable case possible--- and present the full extent of your injuries.

Extremely impressed with this law firm. They took control of a bad motorcycle crash that left my uncle seriously injured. Without any guarantee of a financial recovery, they went out and hired accident investigators and engineers to help prove how the accident happened. I am grateful that they worked on a contingency fee basis as there was no way we could have paid for these services on our own. Ethan Armstrong, Google User
