Accident Solicitor in Brickendon


Preventing and treating shock at the scene of an accident

Nearly 18 million people in the UK end up at an accident and emergency (A&E) department every year. Not all accident victims are to blame for their injuries – sometimes a negligent party has caused an accident in which somebody else got hurt. If you are at the scene of an accident in Brickendon and have witnessed for example how a careless motorist has knocked over a pedestrian, there are several things you can do to help. If you have some knowledge of first aid, you can take some simple steps to prevent an accident victim from going into medical shock.

  • Call an ambulance right away, especially when dealing with an injured child, an elderly casualty or a pregnant accident victim.
  • Be sure to treat any obvious injuries such as bleeding, if you have learned during first aid training how to do this.
  • Make sure as best as you can the accident victim doesn’t have a back injury, then lay the injured person down. Support their legs above the level of their heart and ensure their head is kept low.
  • If you have anything to hand that will cover the accident victim, try to keep them warm.
  • Talk to them and reassure them that medical professionals are on their way;
  • Don’t allow the accident victim to eat, drink or smoke and prevent them from moving unnecessarily.

But there’s something else you can do that is important for the injured person’s recovery: you can take pictures on your mobile phone, provided the injured person gives their permission. Photographic evidence taken at the scene of the accident can support an injury claim and can help an accident solicitor in Brickendon to win compensation for the accident victim later on.
