I Slipped in a New York City Building and I'm Not Sure if I Should See a Doctor

Q

I Slipped in a New York City Building, and I'm Not Sure if I Should See a Doctor. Should I See a Doctor Right Away or Should I Wait and See How I Feel in a Few Days?

A
It is important for you to see a doctor promptly after your fall for two reasons. First and foremost, many slip and fall injuries, including traumatic brain injuries, may not have readily apparent symptoms. Yet, the sooner that you get diagnosed and begin receiving treatment, the better chance you have of making a complete recovery. You may also save yourself from pain and suffering by attending to slip and fall injuries quickly.

Additionally, if you are hurt in a New York slip and fall, then the insurance company is going to look to see when you first consulted a doctor. An insurance agent may later try to use your lack of immediate medical attention as evidence that you were not badly injured in the accident.
