Can You File A Claim After Receiving Medical Treatment for Your Auto Accident Injuries?
Yes – in fact, we advise you to file a personal injury claim after receiving the appropriate medical treatment for your injuries – not before. This is because insurance providers can easily dispute your personal injury claim if you have not yet received the necessary treatment. Thus, filing the claim after the medical treatment has been administered, will help your chances of receiving the full payout that you deserve.
