OTTAWA PERSONAL INJURY LAWYER – When involved in a motor vehicle accident, it is important to book an appointment with a medical practitioner for a thorough examination.
The Glebe Chiropractic Clinic reports that “individuals involved in motor vehicle accidents experience minimal or no symptoms for the first few weeks and even months.” It is important to immediately document injuries to receive maximum compensation for future medical bills from the accident.
A chiropractor (or other health care practitioner) can also determine the extent of the injury or injuries, the number of estimated treatments required to treat your injuries, if referral to another medical specialist is required, if special tests are required (i.e. MRI, CT Scan, etc.) and if you need to take “injury time off” from work (and provide you with a note to present to your employer) which are all important factors when receiving fair compensation for your injuries.
Have you been injured in an Ontario accident? As soon as you’ve received the medical treatment you need, your next step should be speaking with an experienced personal injury lawyer who can help you make a compensation claim for your injury-related expenses.
