At any given moment, you could find yourself in the middle of a car accident somewhere in College Park. Considering distracted drivers using their smartphone devices, poor weather conditions, and heavy traffic, it’s too easy to collide with another vehicle. And, while damaged cars can be replaced, your health can not.
If you should experience a car accident while driving through the community, the first thing you should do is to report your crash to the authorities. Try to assess your situation and let 911 operators know whether you need an ambulance or not.
After you have contacted emergency responders, try to move as far away from the road as possible to avoid getting hit by another car or creating a multi-car pile up. If you and the other driver are in good enough condition, you will want to exchange insurance information, personal contact details, and ask the police for a copy of the accident report. If you need to file a personal injury claim to collect compensation for your damages, you can use the accident report to justify the cause of your wounds.
Once the immediate situation is dealt with, the next thing you should do is to seek Chiropractic Treatment as soon as possible. Contacting one of our College Park Car Accident Chiropractors to schedule a same-day examination gives you the best chance of experiencing a complete, healthy recovery. And, seeking medical treatment within 72 hours of an accident also supports your ability to justify a potential personal injury lawsuit. Should you have to go to trial, the defendant’s insurance provider will likely challenge the severity and cause of your injuries if you delay treatment.
Even if you feel fine after a car accident, there are a variety of standard injuries that do not produce symptoms for several weeks, if not a few months. Accident injuries like Whiplash can go undetected and when left untreated, can cause a series of health concerns that include chronic pain and permanent impairments.
