How to stay safe after an accident – no win no fee in Coylton
Immediately after an accident there will be so much adrenaline and so many things happening that it can be difficult to get your priorities straight and know what you should do for the best. What you should always be thinking about, at all times, is keeping yourself safe, and this should be no different after an accident. In the immediate moments after an accident, you need to do all that you can to keep yourself safe above anything else, and once you know that you are safe you can start to work out what to do next. Here are some things you should be doing to stay safe.
- Get away from the scene. Although there may be people that need your help, and your vehicle and personal possessions may be at the scene, it is important that you try to get away from the scene of the accident in the immediate aftermath, and only return when you know that it is safe. Immediately after an accident it is far more likely that there will be more accidents close by, or that fire or explosions could occur.
- Call the emergency services. Once you are away from the scene, call the emergency services. You should just tell them what you can see and what has happened to you, as they will bring enough people and equipment to get to anyone else that is injured or needs help.
- Don’t try to rescue people or animals. If there are people or animals in other cars and they need help, only go back to help them if you are certain that the scene is secure and poses no risk to you. If you can’t be sure then it is not worth risking both your and their lives trying to save them.
