I felt fine after my car accident and refused medical treatment. Several days later I began experiencing pain in my neck and back. What do I do now?

It is not unusual for some accident victims to experience no pain at the time of the accident. Often pain will present itself several days later. Seek medical help immediately, even if you think the injury or injuries are minor. Whenever you have unexplained symptoms that occur after an accident, see your physician, not matter how long it is after the accident.

Continue seeing you doctor for whatever treatment he or she may prescribe until you are released. This proves you sought medical help and verifies the duration and nature of your injuries. This is vital information that may be used to pursue a car accident injury claim.

Even if you did not complain of or receive medical treatment for injuries at the scene of the accident, you may be entitled to compensation.
