Seek Prompt Medical Attention Seek immediate and prompt medical care, because delays in diagnosis and treatment can be costly from both a health standpoint and from the perspective of presenting a claim. Insurance companies don't like "delays in treatment." Delays or gaps in treatment could hinder the beneficial outcome of your case. A delay or gap in treatment is the period that the claimant goes without seeking medical care after an injury. It is important that you receive immediate care for any injuries that result from the accident to prove your case.  Go to the emergency room, visit a primary care physician, follow up with specialists or see a chiropractor.

Drowsy driving: Its causes and what can be done about it
Drowsy driving causes a large number of accidents each year in California as well as across the nation.
