Seeking medical attention
If your injuries are not bad enough to need medical attention, you will not be able to make a personal injury claim.

Medical reports will be needed when you are making your injury claim. If your injury starts out as small, it could easily escalate into something more serious. If you already have an existing illness, then this can be made worse because of your accident, and your doctor’s opinion could prove vital in your case.
