There is no official or legal time limit on when you should or must see a doctor following a vehicle accident or car wreck. 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.
It may not be fair and may even be stupid but trying to tough it out and avoid medical treatment after a car wreck may just complicate things for you. Sometimes it is true that no good deed goes unpunished.
