    Calming Someone Down After an Accident

    Dealing with someone who is hysterical after an accident is much more difficult than dealing with someone who is able to tell you all of the information you need to know, and can tell you what they need. It is perfectly natural, however, to go into shock immediately following an accident, and this can cause a person to be unresponsive, or seem hysterical.

    If you have been involved in a serious accident and are feeling calm and in control, but feel that someone else present is struggling to keep their cool, here are a few ways in which you can calm them down.

    • Talk to them. The best way to help someone to calm down, and to keep them from going into shock is to take their mind off of the situation by talking to them. The best way to engage their brain in this situation is to start asking questions so that they have to think about something else to respond to you.
    • Warm them up. Not only is a blanket or jacket a great way to keep them warm as shock starts to kick in, the sensation of being covered by material is very soothing for most people, and can help to delay shock.
    • Get the emergency services involved. As much as you are able to do for this person, the emergency services will be able to do more, and you may be able to calm someone down even better if you are able to tell them that an ambulance is on the way.
    • Offer them any help they need. If this person is concerned about someone else, or anything else, you may be able to act as the middle man and provide them with reassurance and information that they currently cannot obtain on their own. If you have bad news, do not impart it here, just tell them that everything is under control.
