What should I do after being involved in a car accident?
After an accident, there may be many unanswered questions such as, what caused the accident? How did it happen? Moreover, how could it have been prevented? These are all questions that need to be answered— mainly if the accident resulted in an injury to you or a loved one.
Seek Medical Attention
The first thing that you should do after getting injured in an accident is to get medical treatment. Do not be afraid of taking an ambulance, if you are hurt. Go to the hospital or
see your family physician, not only is this the right thing to do for your health but, if you don’t
see a doctor for some time after an accident, the insurance companies assume that you did
not suffer significant injuries. Many of those who have been harmed in a car accident fail to
seek medical attention immediately because they do not have symptoms, however, often
most injuries caused by a vehicle accident or not present until a day or so after the accident. Unless you are absolutely certain you were not injured, you should seek medical attention. Even in accidents involving minor impact, you can sustain a serious and permanent injury to your spinal cord, traumatic or mild brain injury even If you did not lose consciousness. Injuries like this can cause cognitive and behavioral changes if left untreated. The most prominent mistake people often make after a vehicle accident is in having a delay in treatment. A delay in treatment is failing to see a care professional as soon as possible. So again, seek treatment.
