At an accident scene, many people believe that low impact automobile collisions do not require medical treatment. However, it is very common for people to experience increasing pain in the days after a collision. Keeping this in mind, even in a small collision, we would suggest going to a physician as soon as possible if for no reason other than to make sure that nothing serious occurred in the accident. In the event that there is an injury related to the collision, this early medical treatment will generate a well-documented history of the symptoms after the accident. Of course, each individual should freely discuss their injures and the medical care they received with their physicians.
