Accidents on the roads in Wombwell, or anywhere else, can wreak havoc on an otherwise uneventful day. Even if they are only minor, they can often cause considerable shock and confusion. If you regularly use the roads, you should have a plan of action for dealing with accidents on the roads. By staying calm and remembering a few simple tips, you can ensure that you handle the situation appropriately.
1. Seek medical assistance for injuries from accidents on the roads in Wombwell
In the immediate aftermath of accidents on the roads, or any other type of accident, your body may release a stress hormone called adrenaline, which can suppress your ability to feel pain. To avoid the possibility of worsening any non-obvious injuries, you should avoid moving from your vehicle unless you are in immediate danger. If you need to exit your vehicle, you must move slowly, avoiding any sudden movements. Once you are in a safe place, call 999 and remain at the scene until the emergency services arrive.
2. Collect information
If you feel well enough to do so, you should exchange information with the other drivers. It is also imperative to obtain the names and contact details of any witnesses to your accident.
3. Create a written account of the circumstances surrounding your accident
If you have a pen and paper to hand, you should create a written account of the details of your accident, including information such as the road conditions and the weather at the time of your accident. Your solicitors will be able to use this information to build your personal injury case.
4. Take photographs
If you have a camera to hand, or your mobile phone, you should take pictures of the accident scene from a range of angles, as well as close-ups of the damage sustained by the vehicles involved. You should also take detailed pictures of your injuries.
