Encountering a Traffic Accident: How to do in this Bad Situation


Encountering a Traffic Accident


When you drive up on or happen to be near an accident, don't ignore it. If you aren't trained in first aid don't try to be a doctor.

You can help by:

  • Calling emergency services for the injured.
  • Keep the injured warm and don't move them unless there in an immediate life threatening need to. Moving injured people can cause more injuries and complications. Only take an injured person to a hospital yourself unless there is no their way to get help.
  • Applying pressure to wounds with a clean cloth to reduce bleeding. Avoid direct contact with blood.
  • If any injured are walking around, convince them to lay or sit down.
