Dealing with Crash Injuries
Roadways, while scrupulously created and mapped for efficient travel, are one of the most dangerous settings.
Thus, it is crucial that everyone remain calm in order to properly handle the immediate aftermath of an automobile collision.
Here are the things that we need to do in case of a vehicle accident:
Before anything else, seek medical attention if you have been hurt.
Then, get to a safe place to prevent further damage or injury.
Also, collect as much information as possible: insurance and contact information of people involved in the accident, pictures/videos of vehicles involved, etc.
Do not forget to file a police report or incident report by calling 911.
