When vehicles collide, everything seems to stop. Traffic on either side of the highway slows to a crawl. Whatever you had planned for the immediate future is now on hold, especially if you are in one of the vehicles that just crashed. Pennsylvania emergency medical responders may look you over, check for broken bones and bandage any bleeding wounds. They may transport you to a hospital for a more thorough evaluation.
It is your right to refuse that evaluation, and you may think it is okay to do so. After all, the accident has already cost you time, and you probably want to get back to your routine as quickly as possible. However, refusing to seek treatment may be dangerous. Automobile accidents can leave victims with unseen injuries, and leaving those injuries unchecked may lead to serious complications.
