Always go to the doctor after an auto accident

You're in a fender bender and you don't feel any pain or discomfort. It seems like a waste of time and money to go to the doctor. That's actually a bad idea. You should always go to the doctor after an auto accident, even if you feel fine.

Why? Read on for the answer.


When you are in a car accident, your body gets jolted. This causes the body to move quickly into a state of alertness. The brain starts signaling for the production of adrenaline. This hormone helps the body react more quickly to stressful or dangerous situations.

At the same time, the brain also signals for the release of endorphins, a group of hormones that help the body manage electrical signals. They can interact with the body's natural opiate receptors to reduce the body's perception of pain.

When you are in an accident, your body gets flooded with adrenaline and endorphins. They can mask the symptoms of pain and injury. Over the course of a few hours, they start to subside. That's when pain and aches from the accident can start to show up.


Another issue that can occur during an accident is what is known as a soft tissue injury. A vehicle accident can involve a lot of force that may put a strain on the muscles, tendons, and ligaments of the body. These soft tissue injuries sometimes don't appear for days or weeks after an accident. Since they don't show up on X-rays, they can be difficult to diagnose.

Seeing a doctor right after an accident is the smart thing to do. The doctor can do a thorough exam to identify any injuries you may have. The doctor can also advise you on how to monitor for soft tissue injuries and other issues that may come up in the days and weeks ahead.

Call the accomplished attorneys here at MVP Accident Attorneys if you are ever in an accident. We can help you protect your rights to compensation for injuries.

Last year I had an accident and my car was totaled. I was very upset and didn't know what to do. A friend told me to call MVP and it was the best decision ever. They got my car paid off very fast, set me up with a doctor, and just last week I got a fat check for my pain and suffering. Thank you MVP!

MVP Accident Attorneys was the best decision ever made. They helped me through the process and made it stress free for me. It was first accident and i was super stressed because i didn’t know what to do. I called MVP and was treated so kindly by amazing people who went over my accident with me and any questions i had. They have a whole team! I was then helped by attorney and case managers who set me up with treatment so I can get all patched up. Finally, the liens department took care of all my bills and made sure i had nothing to worry about. 11/10 would recommend them to family and friends! You cannot go wrong with MVP
