Yes, this is normal for some types of injuries. For example, the pain associated with car and truck accidents commonly does not begin until later that evening, the day after the accident, or even multiple days after the accident. This delayed onset makes prompt treatment imperative. Symptoms of injuries from some medications likewise may not manifest immediately, making prompt treatment similarly important for drug injuries.

I did not call the police at the accident scene, or I did not create an incident report after a fall or workplace injury. Do I still have a case?

You might. While crash reports and incident reports constitute useful documentation of the and may help resolve a case, the lack of a crash or incident report does not necessarily doom your case.

Probably not. Diab Law Firm strives to resolve cases as early as possible to minimize expenses and help clients quickly. Though DLF prepares every case for the possibility of trial, most cases, even those that require some litigation, do not proceed to trial.

Should I return to work?

This question invokes both legal and medical issues. Under Texas law, a claimant generally bears a duty to mitigate damages. In other words, you probably should return to work if you can. However, if your doctor due to medical necessity issues instructions limiting your motions at work or prohibiting you from working altogether, your duty to mitigate under the law does not obligate you to continue working in the same capacity or at all, respectively. Always request your doctor’s instructions in writing.
