FAQ: When Should I Go See a Doctor After a Car Accident?

Well, the answer is as quickly as you need to. In other words if you need emergency medical services, then you need to take the ambulance to the E.R. If it's a type of injury that you believe you can wait or that gets worse over time, then you want to go to the doctor as quickly as possible. A preference would be your family doctor who knows your medical history and has treated you over a long period of time, so that would be the priority. However, don't wait too long to get to your doctor. If it's going to take a few days to get you an appointment, then what I would recommend is to go to an urgent care facility that could see you right away. You don't want to let too many days pass until you get to a doctor. You want to go right away.
