I was in a car accident and was not really hurt, but my wife says I should see a doctor anyhow? Do I need to?

Yes, you should see a doctor, regardless how severe or not a car accident was. See a doctor after a car accident, whether you feel fine or not. While you may feel just fine at first, since can still still be in shock, you may have injuries that are not readily apparent to you. Some types of injuries do not manifest or begin to show symptoms until days, weeks or even months after the crash.

Moreover, you need to be properly medically evaluated to spot any injuries and start medical care. It also helps your claim to have a record on file of your documented injuries and any treatment you are undergoing.
