Frequently Asked Questions After a Car Accident

Posted By Cobb Pain & Rehab || 8-Nov-2016

After experiencing a car accident, a victim is always left with a number of questions. In our experience dealing with patients in Cobb County, we have found that the most frequently asked questions about car accidents are:

1. Should I wait for my insurance to respond for damages?

Most drivers have a policy that covers damages in the event of an accident. Additionally, there is third party coverage that can protect you in an accident that was caused by someone else. In any case, whether you caused the accident or if you were a victim of a negligent driver, you must inform your insurance company to begin the claim process. It is possible that the other driver’s insurance company is who will cover all the expenses generated by the accident.

2. How do I know if I am injured?

A car crash at medium or high speed can cause the body to absorb a great deal of shock, causing serious injury. The first sign of an injury is pain, a sensation caused by the nervous system that tells the body when something is not working well. A sharp pain is the first alert to seek medical attention and get a diagnosis.

3. In the emergency room, they told me that with rest the pain would go away. Is this true?

Visits to the emergency room after an accident are usually quick and superficial. Because the patient may still be in shock from the accident, he or she may say that nothing hurts when questioned about his or her level of pain and discomfort. The patient may then be sent home without any further examination for possible injuries. If you or someone you know suffered an accident and is experiencing discomfort, Cobb Pain & Rehab has the technology and experience to diagnose all types of injuries and recommend the best treatment.

4. What if I have no lawyer or money to start a case?
