What to do if you think that you are badly injured and how to get accident advice in Surrey
If you have had an accident or a fall, you should always take a moment before you try to get up to check yourself over and see how badly you are injured. In most smaller accidents, you will probably be fine to get up and get on with your day, after taking care of any minor cuts and scratches, but if you are bleeding badly, or are worried that you have broken or sprained anything, you really should get medical attention. If the accident you were injured in was not your fault, you should also be seeking accident advice in Surrey.
If you haven’t had a bad accident before, it can be difficult to know what to do right away, so here are some of the things that you can do.
- Let someone know. Whether you are on your own or with other people, the first thing you should do is to let someone know that you believe that you are badly injured and are going to require medical care. This helps to put your mind at ease because this person will do what they can to provide you with medical help and support, and can also help to get the emergency services to you quickly.
- Call the emergency services. You should call the emergency services as quickly as you can, let them know where you are first, and then fill them in on what you think is wrong afterwards, so that they can already be on the road when you are filling them in on the problem.
- Perform basic first aid. If you don’t know what you are doing, it is best to just try to stay calm and wait, but if you have any basic first aid skills you should try to use these to stop any bleeding or keep yourself comfortable until the ambulance arrives. This can stop the situation getting any worse.
- Stay calm. Going into shock is one of the worst things that can happen after a serious accident, as it can cause death in the worst cases. Try to stay calm as much as possible, by focusing on your breathing.
