FAQ about medical care after a car accident
People injured in a car accident caused by another driver often have a lot of questions about medical care. Some of the most frequently asked questions are listed below.
If you don’t see your specific question, don’t worry. And even if you do, we still strongly urge you to contact our law firm to discuss your potential case.

Should I go to the doctor after a car accident?
Yes. Even if you think you didn’t sustain an injury in a car accident, it’s critical that you have a medical professional examine you. You could have a life-threatening internal injury and not even realize it.
How many days do you have to go to the doctor after a car accident?
The sooner you go to a doctor, the better. That way, a doctor can examine you and find out exactly what’s wrong with you. But no matter how long ago your car accident took place, it’s never too late to have a medical professional examine you.
What kind of doctor should I see after a car accident?
Most people choose to see their family physician after their car accident. Other times, people seek treatment in a hospital emergency room from an ER doctor. It’s up to you decide which doctor you want to see after your car accident. And depending on what type of injury you have, you may need to see several different types of doctors or physical therapists to properly treat your car accident injury. Doctors and medical professionals who sometimes treat different types of injuries often associated with car accidents include:
- ER surgeon
- Family doctor
- Physical therapist
Should I go to urgent care after a car accident?
If you want to be examined by a doctor at an urgent care center, you should definitely do so. Sometimes, urgent care centers are a great place to start if you think you sustained an injury in a car accident. An urgent care doctor may then recommend additional tests, especially if the doctor suspects you have a very serious injury which may require surgery.
How long should you be sore after a car accident?
There’s no set time limit when it comes to how long you should feel sore after a car accident. If you’re in pain, you should see a doctor right away after your accident. Don’t wait a few days to see if your pain goes away. If you delay seeking medical care, you could put your health and well-being at risk. And if you haven’t gone to doctor yet and you’re still in pain, go as soon as possible, even if your accident was several days or weeks ago.
Who pays for medical care after a car accident?
In most cases, the at-fault driver’s insurance company should pay for your medical care. But that’s often easier said than done. Many insurance companies take a tough stance after a car accident. They know that medical care can easily add up to thousands or even millions of dollars. That’s why they often look for any excuse to deny your claim.
We know how to take on insurance companies. We know the games they play. We know the tactics they use. And we know how to negotiate effectively with them. Many insurance companies cooperate with us. But if they refuse to do so, we will not hesitate to file a car accident lawsuit on your behalf. Put the power of Bretz Injury Law to work for you. Contact us.

Don’t miss out on your opportunity for justice. In Kansas, you often only have a limited amount of time to take legal action after your car accident. This deadline (known as the statute of limitations) is often two years from the date of your car accident. That might seem like a long time. But the longer you wait, the harder it often becomes to find evidence related to your crash.
