If you have been injured in an accident, you may be tempted to tough it out and see if you recover on your own. Unfortunately, doing so can cause permanent damage both to your body and your personal injury case. Unless you seek prompt treatment and follow-up care, the insurance company of the party that injured you may take the position that your injury is not serious — or it was caused by something other than the accident.
At Shollenberger Januzzi & Wolfe, our attorneys offer a free initial consultation to explain your rights after an accident. We never charge a fee of any kind unless you retain our services and our lawyers are successful in obtaining benefits for you. With offices in Harrisburg and Enola, we represent injured people throughout central Pennsylvania.
What If I Don't Have Medical Insurance?
If you do not have medical coverage, our lawyers can help you explore your options. There are doctors who will provide your care in exchange for a lien on your personal injury recovery. This will enable you to obtain the treatment you need to get your health back after an accident.
The most important thing you can do after an accident is obtain proper medical care and get better.
What If My Injuries Are Minor?
You should err on the side of caution and seek medical attention. If your injuries are minor, that is the best outcome you could hope for. Unfortunately, sometimes injuries are worse than they first seem.
In the aftermath of an accident, your body will be filled with adrenaline and you may not feel injuries for up to 72 hours. After you seek treatment, your doctor may provide pain medication and muscle relaxants that will further mask symptoms. You may not know the full extent of your injury until days or weeks after the accident.
Should I Accept An Insurance Company Settlement?
You should never accept a settlement without advice from a lawyer. Our attorneys would recommend that you never settle your case until you reach what is known as maximum medical improvement. Only then will you know the full extent of how the injury will affect your life.
