What should I do if my child was injured as a passenger in a car accident?
If your child was injured as a passenger in a car crash, it's important to get them medical attention as soon as possible. Depending on their age, they may not be able to articulate exactly what happened or what is wrong with them. So it's important to get medical providers involved to be able to do an examination and make sure that they are right. Oftentimes, they could have a brain injury that they are unaware of or that they don't notice because they weren't coherent through the entire situation, and you may be focusing on yourself at first before checking on your child, because you wanna make sure you know where you are and what's going on. So the first thing you wanna do always is make sure that you get a medical provider involved as soon as possible, whether that's through 911 or an ambulance, or just taking them to the hospital yourself. It's important that they get checked out.
