It can happen instantly, without warning. You’re driving a normal route to work and suddenly you’re jolted in your seat. While relatively minor, this small accident on the road can have a lasting, devastating impact on your health.
- Call the police: A police report will be invaluable when dealing with the insurance company later. It will also give all parties involved a chance to provide an accurate account of the incident to an objective person.
- Take photos of both cars: With cameras present on all smartphones, it’s a good idea to take photos of the damage to your car and any other vehicles involved. Photographic evidence is hard to beat if there is ever any dispute. Take pictures of the road conditions as well.
- Fill out the ‘Accident Info’: Make sure you get all the information needed from the other party. You will need their names, addresses, phone numbers, license information and insurance company and policy numbers.
- Call Chirofit Wellness Center (512) 531-9100: Our chiropractic care team can deal with your automobile injuries immediately. We know the sudden movements that can affect your spine and are trained to recognize the trauma symptoms. Your vehicle is made of plastic that can withstand forces of an impact; your body is not. If there is damage to your vehicle, there will very likely be whiplash and other injuries to your body and spine. Don’t wait for the pain. We can work towards fixing the problem before the negative side effects arise.
- Follow the paramedics’ guidance: If paramedics come to the scene of the accident, listen to what they say to reduce any potential harm. They are the most qualified people on the scene to advise you on the state of your health.
