If you’re in a car crash, what should you do? This is a question that many people ask, and the answer can vary depending on the situation.

This blog will discuss when to call 911 after a crash. We will also advise you on how to check for injuries and what to do if you are injured. Stay safe, and remember to call 911 if you need help!

Check for Injuries

After a crash, the first thing you should do is check for injuries. If you may not think you or other passengers have been injured, seeking medical attention is still critical. In some cases, symptoms of an injury may not show up for days or weeks after an accident. It’s better to be safe than sorry! Do not overexert or move about in the immediate aftermath of a crash.

Call 911

Once you’ve checked for injuries, the next thing you should do is call 911 immediately. The dispatcher will ask you questions about the crash and send an ambulance if necessary. Do not overexert or move around in the immediate aftermath of a crash.

Wait until emergency medical professionals and police arrive to attend to you and your passengers. Moving around could cause further injury.

Stay Calm

If you’re involved in a crash, it’s important to stay calm. This can be difficult, but take deep breaths until emergency professionals arrive.

What to Do Next

No one expects to be in a car crash, but unfortunately, accidents happen daily on U.S. roads. Knowing what to do after a crash can help you stay calm and get the help you need.
