What You Should Do if You are Seriously Injured
Car wrecks are frightening and often you are so shaken by them you do not know what to do first. Here is a list of steps you should take if you are involved in a car wreck and sustained serious injuries.
• Check on the passengers in your car and the driver and passengers in the other car if you are able.
• If someone has sustained a serious injury call 911 immediately.
• Do not move any victims unless they are in real danger such as lying in the middle of the road or in harmful car fluids. If you must move them do so very gingerly while supporting their head, neck and back.
• Call law enforcement.
• Take pictures of the accident site and your injuries if possible. Most cell phones have picture taking capabilities.
• Swap contact information with the other driver. Write down their license plate number, insurance carrier name and phone number, their name, address and phone number and driver’s license number.
• Refrain from apologizing or admitting guilt for any aspect of the accident.
• Chat with potential witnesses and see if they have an accurate account of what happened. If so, get their name, address and phone number.
• Notify your insurance carrier of the accident and your injuries.
• Do not leave the scene of the accident unless told to do so by a law enforcement officer.
