First aid treatment for car accidents
If you find yourself at the scene of an accident and there are casualties, contact 999 and then follow the instructions given to you by the operator. If you suspect that the casualty has a spinal injury, do not attempt to move them. Talk to the person and reassure them, cover them in a blanket and try to get them to respond. If the casualty is not breathing, be prepared to start CPR; the operator will direct you until the paramedics arrive. If the casualty has a deep cut and is bleeding excessively, hold a piece of cloth or material over the wound and apply pressure; this will help to stem the bleeding.Open Claim Calculator
