What To Do in Case of Vehicle Crash
Roadways, while scrupulously created and mapped for efficient travel, are one of the most dangerous settings.
It is therefore important to know how to proceed in case you find yourself involved in a traffic collision.
In fact, each year, around 20-50 million people are injured or become disabled due to an auto crash.
Here is how to proceed if you find yourself involved in a crash:
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, and pictures/videos of vehicles involved. Do not forget to include documentation of fault, and whatever else that can be used for evidence.
