What to do when you are in an accident

Accidents happen all the time. In the countries, where there are no rules, there are many accidents and hundreds of people die in them too. If you have been in some kind of accident, here are few things that you should do at once:

  • Don’t get panic:

The first and the foremost thing that you should do are to be relaxed. I know that this kind of situation is not something you can get relax in. However, this is a necessity. The reason why you should get relax or calm down is because in the accidents, our brain is forced to release the stress hormone which directs the blood flow towards the heart and brain causing them to work hard. If you don’t try to calm yourself, your blood pressure can get elevated and this way you can lose a lot of your blood too. So the best thing to do is to calm yourself and don’t get panic at all. Even if you are injured or you are seeing blood everywhere, try to be in your conscious.

  • Call 911:

The next thing you should do is to find your phone and call 911. You can also call other emergency services depending upon the country you live in. The reason why you should do that is because if someone is badly injured and there is no one around you to help them, the emergency services will come in time and get them treated soon. This way you can save a lot of lives. Even if you are badly injured, try to call them no matter what. They will take care of your wounds. There is another hospital driving service which can help you in these accidents. All you have to do is to call them.

  • Check for injuries:

The next thing that you need to do is to check for the injuries. Even if it’s you who is injured or someone else you should check them for internal or external injuries. Uncover them and check for wounds. If they are having a lot of bleeding, you should try to cover it with some cloth. Try to stop the blood, no matter what. People often die from losing a lot of blood in accidents. This way you can save their lives. Even if you are injured, you should try to get some first aid for yourself too.
