We are sorry to hear that your injuries were more significant than you first thought they were in the hours following your Milwaukee motorcycle accident. You did the right thing by getting medical care the following day, and you may not have hurt your case.
The most important reasons to get medical care are to help with your physical recovery and to minimize your pain. We hope that your doctor was able to diagnose your injuries and develop a treatment plan for you to achieve those goals.
Your medical care may also be important to your legal recovery. In order to recover damages for your Milwaukee motorcycle accident injuries, you will need to prove that your injuries were caused by the accident and that your injuries would not have occurred but for the other driver’s negligent or deliberate actions. Thus, it is important to see a doctor as soon as possible after an accident. However, you, together with an experienced Wisconsin motorcycle accident lawyer, may be able to establish causation if you saw a doctor the day after your injuries.
For more information, our Wisconsin motorcycle accident attorneys encourage you to contact us directly via this website or by phone at 414-223-4800 and we invite you to read our book, The Ultimate Guide for Motorcycle Accident Victims, which is available for FREE on this website.
