Even if you feel totally fine, it is very unusual to walk away from a motorcycle accident completely unhurt. While you may not have any major visible injuries, you could have an internal injury that may take days or even weeks to become known. You may not feel immediate effects or symptoms from internal injuries. The sooner you see a doctor, the better for your long term health and recovery. You also may have what seem to be minor injuries, like mild neck strain or back pain, that progress or get worse without proper treatment or physical therapy.
In addition to the main priority of caring for your immediate health and long term well being, it is also extremely important to have professional medical records when it comes to dealing with insurance companies after a motorcycle accident.
You need to seek medical attention right away and be sure to document all health care visits and procedures because an insurance company could use any delay in seeking treatment to argue that you weren’t actually seriously hurt.
