In the wake of a car accident, the medical treatment you receive can make all the difference, both in terms of your long-term health and the financial compensation you may receive. Therefore, it is always vital to get checked out as soon as possible after the crash, so you can get any medical issues diagnosed and treated.

Man Being Hit by Car

Many people think that they can try to “tough it out” after a car accident. It is almost a natural human instinct for people to think that they are ok for as long as they can. However, this attitude is counterproductive in many respects. For example:

  • Delaying treatment can allow an undiagnosed injury to get worse.
  • You lose valuable time that you could be putting towards submitting an insurance claim.
  • Insurance companies may be able to argue that your choice to delay seeking medical attention made your injuries worse and offer you a lower settlement as a result.

Don’t Delay in Getting Diagnostic and Medical Help

If you did not receive treatment at the time of the accident, you should always get examined by a doctor. You can visit a car accident clinic in Miami to get the diagnostic and medical help necessary in both documenting your claim and recovering from your injuries.

Without the proper medical records, you might not receive any payment for your car accident injuries. One of the prerequisites to an insurance claim is that you show that you were injured. Without medical records and treatment notes, this will not be possible. Even if you have something in your file that you turn over to the insurance company, you may be selling yourself short if the information is incomplete.

Your medical records should include a thorough diagnosis, both of what you are dealing with in the short term and your long-term prognosis. The insurance company will not pay you a penny more than they have to and will go to any lengths possible to protect their bottom line. If your claim provides scant or incomplete information, you will be giving them the weapons they need to shortchange you.

Your Medical Records Help Prove Your Claim

One of the major elements of your insurance claim is pain and suffering. You will be paid for the difficulty that you have experienced and will in the future. The only way that the insurance company knows this is from your medical records. In addition, your medical documentation will also show the extent to which your earnings could suffer in the future by proving that you are unable to work or engage in certain jobs.

Why More People Are Injured or Killed in Pedestrian Accidents Recently

Several factors seem to indicate that this disturbing trend is here to stay:

  • The rise in SUVs means that more drivers are traveling in heavier vehicles, causing more serious injury to passengers.
  • More motorists are driving distracted since they use their mobile devices behind the wheel. As a result, they miss seeing pedestrians in the crosswalks.
  • More people are moving into the urban core of their city and abandoning cars, meaning that there are more people walking.
  • There are more cars and trucks on the road than at any previous point in time.

Even having a crosswalk clearly marked is often not enough to protect pedestrians from an accident. Many motorists simply drive right through the crosswalk regardless of whether a pedestrian is trying to cross the street. Florida will hit drivers with a minimum fine of $164 and up to three points on their license for failure to stop at a crosswalk. However, even these penalties do not get all drivers to stop when legally required.

As dangerous as the United States is for pedestrians, Florida is even worse. The state has a death rate almost twice as high as the national average. Nationally, 1.55 pedestrians out of every 100,000 are killed each year. Florida has the highest rate of pedestrian fatalities in the country, with 2.73 out of every 100,00.

Injuries in a Pedestrian Accident Can Be Serious or Fatal

Because of the sheer size of the car that collides with a defenseless person, pedestrian injuries will likely be significant. Even if a person survives a pedestrian accident, they are likely facing serious bodily harm in the short and long term. Almost half of pedestrians involved in an accident will suffer an injury to their face, head, or neck. Common pedestrian accident injuries include:

  • Traumatic brain injuries (TBI) and other neurological injuries
  • Spinal cord injuries and paralysis
  • Fractured bones
  • Dislocated shoulders

No matter where you received medical treatment, you will need to have your injuries diagnosed and cared for before filing a claim or lawsuit. Even if you did not suffer critical injuries, very few pedestrians ever emerge from an accident unscathed.

If you have not yet sought medical treatment, you should do so in the immediate days after an accident. Otherwise, it would be difficult to recover money for your claim because you could not show that you were injured. Proving your injuries requires something in writing. Therefore, a full medical exam after an accident is a must. You would need a complete diagnostic check, even if you received treatment at the scene.

388CEDA’s Diagnostic and Treatment Services

As an injured pedestrian, you would need to show that you were both injured and that another driver was at fault for your injuries. At 388CEDA, we can help you with both parts of that process. Our board-certified doctors can examine and diagnose you. Resources include:
