I need to see a doctor after being involved in an accident. What am I supposed to tell them and what do I need to be aware of?

Before going to you doctor appointment make a list of all your symptoms. Also create a list of all the questions you have regarding your injuries. Going to a doctor is the first step in creating a paper trail for a court case or settlement. List all the symptoms that you are experiencing. Even if you think they may only be minor. Make sure that the doctor writes them down in your chart.

Even if you think that the accident was no serious, many injuries will show up days or weeks after your accident. Moreover, many minor symptoms may indicate more serious conditions. For instance, you might have a tingling in your fingers or your arm seems weaker than it used to be. This could be a sign of a disruption in the discs in your neck or another location on your spine.
