If you are involved in an accident where you do not feel hurt at the scene, you should not immediately assume that you have no claim. Often, the chaos and unrest at the accident scene can mask a number of injuries that may appear and cause pain in the coming hours or days. Although you may not feel injured at the time of the accident, be sure to contact your doctor as soon as possible. A proper medical examination may be critical in revealing the extent of your injuries and providing evidence of those injuries later in the litigation process. Without proper documentation of these injuries, it will be very difficult to recover the money to which are a rightly entitled.
