After a motor vehicle accident, the most important thing to do is seek medical help right away. Don’t delay seeking medical treatment following an accident because you fear an expensive hospital bill. It's vital to take care of your health now to ensure proper recuperation from your injuries and to make sure you aren’t experiencing any dangerous internal injuries that aren’t immediately visible. A delay in getting medical assistance may also negatively affect a potential personal injury claim you have against the at-fault driver for compensation.
