The aftermath of a vehicle collision is confusing and stressful, but it helps to know exactly what to do if it happens. All circumstances are very different, so it may not even be possible to get out of your car and start moving around. If you can, immediately get your car out of traffic to avoid difficulty for other drivers trying to commute through the roadway. Even if you and your passengers do not notice any immediate injuries, you all need to get proper medical attention. Get the names and contact information of any eye witnesses that could provide an accurate account of the crash. The police need to be alerted as well so that your attorney has an official report of the incident to reference in a legal claim. It never hurts to also take pictures of the vehicles involved and any evidence at the crash site. Never admit that you’re at fault to anyone because details of the incident are not clear until a full investigation is concluded.
The speed, vehicle size, and force behind a collision can make the difference between a minor fender bender and a catastrophic accident. Head-on collisions are among the most dangerous, resulting in whiplash, head injuries, broken bones, back injuries, neck injuries, paralysis, spinal cord damage, or death. When you’re hit from behind, the sudden jerking motion can cause whiplash, head injuries, and other soft tissue trauma. A broadside impact does not cushion with any safety features so it causes more risk of crushed bones, organ damage, brain injury, spinal cord injuries, permanent disfigurement, or death. Traumatic brain injuries that can occur are one of the main reasons an accident victim needs to seek medical treatment even if they feel fine after a wreck. It can take time to show signs, but these types of injuries cause extensive physical and mental complications that cause a great financial need.
