With the first snow fall of the year comes the first round of weather related automobile accidents. If you or a loved one has been in an accident, knowing what to do could create quite a challenge. Most people are in a kind of fog initially, so details go overlooked, especially when it comes to their own health concerns.
Here are some tips to help you get help and collect vital
- Stay calm; keep the accident from getting worse.
- Render aid – if you are qualified.
- Warn other motorists away – unless they are qualified to aid
- Call 911 for assistance
- Seek care for your injuries (I can’t tell you how many times I see evidence of a serious accident that caused no immediate symptoms).
- Get your spine checked for Whiplash and other subluxations: injuries to your neck can lead to serious neurological and degenerative changes that last a lifetime if not adjusted properly.
Here is some information that you should write down about the other driver (it pays to have a small pad of paper and pen in the glove box):
- License Plate Number
- Home and Work Phone Number
- Drivers License Number
- Insurance Agent
- Insurance Agent Phone Number
- Insurance Company
- Policy Number
- Witness Name and Number
The most important thing to do in any accident is to make certain that everyone involved is cared for properly.
