When you are in a car accident, one of the first things you should do is call the police. A police officer will come out to take a report, which can be very important down the road. Memories can fade, and stories can change. The accident report will preserve what happened and can be used as evidence if necessary.
Emergency Medical Services (EMS) will also be called if injuries are believed to have been sustained. If injuries seem minor at first, many people often decline the ambulance ride to the hospital. However, it is best to be cautious when dealing with potential injuries.
While injuries may not seem severe enough to warrant an ambulance ride, consider injuries that are not easily assessed at the accident scene. For example, while you may not have any broken bones or visible lacerations, you could have an injury that is harder to detect, such as a concussion or internal bleeding.
If you are not the at-fault driver in the accident, the other driver’s insurance will likely be responsible for the cost of the ambulance ride, as well as any additional medical bills related to the accident.
