YOU’VE BEEN IN A CAR WRECK, NOW WHAT?
It’s a scary time. Without warning, you are struck by another vehicle. Feeling dazed and in pain, it’s hard to know what to do next. It’s normal that you wouldn’t, this is an unusual, frightening time. We provide these tips in the hope that if this happens to you, you can protect yourself with this information.
Take the ambulance from the scene of the accident
You may automatically be transported to the hospital if you were in a serious accident and have severe injuries. But even if you aren’t sure of the extent of your injuries immediately after the accident, you should take the ambulance to the hospital.
Sometimes your injuries aren’t known to you. Your adrenaline is pumping because you are scared. A doctor can examine you and evaluate the effect of the accident on your body. This also allows you time to take a breath and settle down before driving away.
Bottom line, take the ambulance ride just to be safe.
Follow up with your family doctor
As soon as you can, go see your family doctor and find a specialist to treat your injuries. It’s important for a couple reasons. First, you need to get better. These type injuries tend to hurt worse as time goes on. Also, if you decide to file a claim or file a lawsuit for your injuries and damages, insurance companies like to see medical treatment without long gaps of time without treatment. Your claim makes more sense when you seek treatment and continue to receive medical treatment until you are all better.
