Even if you think your injuries may be minor, it is recommended that you consult with a personal injury attorney as soon as possible to review your options and protect your rights. Most importantly, your PIP and Med Pay claims may be limited or barred completely if you do not act quickly. Therefore, it is essential that you seek medical treatment for your injuries within the first 14 days after the accident even if those injuries seem to be minimal at that time.
Car accidents, such as rear end collisions, can seem relatively minor at first, however, they usually lead to soft tissue injuries and whiplash. These types of injuries should never be ignored or overlooked, as they often lead to other complicated health problems.
Insurance adjusters minimize and deny claims of injured people from car accidents that have low property damage and deny claims to the injured victim. It is essential to remember that insurance companies are commercial businesses looking for ways to minimize their exposure. Meanwhile while your claim is being denied, you may continue to suffer well into the future with pain and limitation from your soft tissue injuries, that could have been alleviated or certainly minimized if you received the medical treatment necessary to help you heal.
