Delaying visiting your doctor or not cooperating with your doctor
Seek medical treatment from a physician (M.D.) as soon as possible after your accident. Obtain and follow the recommendations for treatment from all the medical providers who treat you. Do not discontinue treatment until your physician advises you to do so. And do not take any "breaks" from your treatment - stay on the regular treatment schedule ordered by your doctor. Failure to do any of the above provides the insurance company and their lawyers the opportunity to argue that you were not really injured, or that your injuries were not very severe, or that you aggravated or prolonged your injuries by failing to follow the recommended treatment.
