Q How long do I have to see a doctor after an accident?
Month after month more people visit this website after Googling this question than any other. There is no official or legal time limit on when you should or must see a doctor following a vehicle accident. But the insurance company is more likely to argue that there is no connection between the accident and your doctor visit the longer the time period between them. Waiting four, five or six months after an accident to see a doctor for your injury makes it more likely that the insurance company will deny your claim.
