You don’t need Gorseinon accident claim solicitors to obtain your injury compensation
If you have been involved in any kind of accident on the roads, in public or at work then you are not advised to contact Gorseinon, accident claim solicitors. You may be entitled to compensation for the injuries you have suffered. However, that doesn’t mean it is wise to use Gorseinon accident claim solicitors to help you obtain it. Rather than relying on Gorseinon accident claim solicitors, you should turn to a personal injury law firm with a trusted reputation. Here at Accident Advice Helpline, we can offer you just that.
Accidents, especially those in public places, rarely just involve one single person. It may be the case that as well as needing to know how to contact us, you need to know the basics of first aid in order that you can give assistance to anyone else involved in the same accident.
The initial assessment
Whether you’re a veteran of first aid, or have simply watched a lot of Grey’s Anatomy, the first thing you should do after any accident is to contact the professionals. This means dialling 999 and requesting an ambulance. Once they’re on their way, it’s entirely possible that you can be of assistance. Yet the skill of ambulance technicians should never be underestimated.
Once the ambulance is on its way then you can perform an initial assessment. The operator on the 999 call may take you through this assessment in any event. It could help them to determine how soon your incident needs emergency medical care.
This evaluation will ask you to consider the first priorities. These are whether the casualty is breathing and whether their circulatory system is still functioning. In order to do this, you will need to check that the airway is open, that the patient is breathing and that they have circulation. This is known as the ABC assessment.
Emergency first aid
In the event that the patient is compromised, further medical care is certainly going to be needed. It may be the case that you need to perform CPR in the meantime. There are various outlets where CPR may be learned, such as the St John’s Ambulance or British Red Cross. It may also be the case that the 999 operator can talk you through the process.
In addition, you may be told to check for bleeding and told to stem the bleeding by pressing something tightly against the injury or to keep the patient warm and comfortable so as to stave off shock.
Don’t bother contacting Gorseinon accident claim solicitors
