It is important to be aware that any car accident in San Diego caused by another driver’s negligence or recklessness could entitle you to compensation for your injuries. Any valid injuries connected to the accident could be the basis of you claim. You should not, however, just expect that your insurance company will cut you a check after you report that you have been having serious shoulder pain.
One of the most important things you can do in this situation is to document all of your injuries properly and be able to demonstrate that they were caused by the car accident. This means that you need to get medical attention for your injuries as soon as possible and tell your care providers what you are experiencing in terms of discomfort and pain.
Make sure that you also follow any doctor’s instructions regarding treating your pain as this could prove important down the line. Keep all of your follow-up appointments and make sure that you obtain copies of your medical bills and records. Presenting a comprehensive picture to the insurance company can be vital for demonstrating that the car accident caused your injuries. You may also wish to provide a copy of all these materials to your personal injury lawyer in the event that you are moving forward with a claim.
