The same is true when you have an accident and maybe see a doctor a couple of times but don’t receive medical care for several months after the accident. There may be perfectly good reasons you didn’t start treatment for awhile or have gaps in treatment. It can take a while for symptoms of your injuries to appear, or sometimes injuries seem to get better, but then take a turn for the worse. By the same token, some people may stop treating earlier than they should because they think they’re as better as they’re going to get, or because they don’t want to appear weak by continuing to go to a doctor for so long.
With gaps in treatment, adjusters will argue that you couldn’t have been hurt very badly – after all, you didn’t even get any medical treatment right away – and they’ll try to deny your claim or lowball a settlement offer. Be sure to get as much treatment as your doctor thinks is appropriate for your injuries.
