I was in a minor car accident, but I feel fine. Do I need to see my doctor?

Yes. You should see your doctor right away and let him know what happened, along with any problems you notice, no matter how minor they seem. Sometimes it takes a few days before you really start feeling the effects of a car accident. If you don’t see your doctor immediately, some insurance companies may try to claim that your injury stemmed from an unrelated event after the accident.  Better safe than sorry when dealing with your health.
