What should you do after a car accident?
The first thing you should do after a car accident is seek medical attention for any injuries. Calling 911 is a good idea to get care as quick as possible. It is very important that you seek medical help because car accidents are a shock to the bodies system. People often don’t realize they are injured. An accident is scary and our bodies react by producing adrenaline. Adrenaline can cause our bodies to mask an injury. That doesn’t mean you aren’t injured! People who have been in a car accident sometimes don’t even realize what happened during the wreck. Brad Pistotnik sees injured people all the time who didn’t realize it immediately after the accident.An accident victim may hit their head on the side of the car, the steering wheel, or get jolted from side to side. It is normal to feel a little different after an accident, that is why you should always get checked out by a medical professional. The best way to do this is to head to the emergency room right away. You could cause yourself further injury if you don’t seek medical attention. Not only is this important for your health, it is important for a future claim. If you wait the insurance company will most likely take the stance that you were not injured in the accident. Insurance companies will focus on the time frame that it took you to seek medical care after your accident. It doesn’t mean that you weren’t injured, it just means that they will try and claim that you weren’t. So, after you are in a car wreck, take care of your health first!
