Introduction

Almost all Americans will be involved in a car accident in their lifetime. Every year, roughly 32,000 to 40,000 United States citizens are killed in a car crash. According to motor vehicles statistics, there are about 5.25 million accidents across the nation on an annual basis. That equivocates to about one car accident every 60 seconds. 

If you get into a car wreck, one of the very first questions you may ask is: what happens next? 

The first thing that you should do in a car accident is to check yourself for injuries and call 911. 

If you are unsure whether you are injured, wait for the EMS to arrive to stabilize your neck and or back, because many car accidents include whiplash from the amount of speed of the collision. Attempting to move, or get out of your car after a wreck or collision is dangerous due to passing traffic and the amount of adrenaline that typically occurs after such a startling event.

If you are injured, have the EMS take you by ambulance to the hospital. Transportation in a stabilized position for the head, neck, and back areas is imperative to your potential claim. 

While you are waiting in your car, you should contact the Orlando Accident Attorney right away. This will alert your attorney to the accident so that you are represented in the matter immediately.
