I think I injured my neck in a car accident. Should I wait to see a doctor until after I see a lawyer?

It is always important to seek treatment for any accident-related injury as soon as possible. Because of extensive experience with injured clients, an experienced personal injury lawyer might be able to help you find the right doctor or medical group to help with your neck injury, but you should not delay treatment while waiting for a “referral” from an attorney. While it is true that neck injuries need to be treated by doctors with the right kind of experience to ensure that all problems are detected, most medical providers should take your neck injury complaints very seriously and provide a starting point for treatment.
