Auto Accident
What should I do if someone is injured?

The law requires you to give reasonable assistance to injured persons. For example, you may need to call an ambulance, take the injured person to a doctor or hospital, or give first aid (only if you are certified).
You are not to move someone who is badly hurt, unless they are in danger of being hurt worse or killed.  For example, if someone is thrown from a car onto the freeway, carefully move the person to a safer place. To avoid additional collisions, try to warn other motorists that an accident has occurred by placing flares on the road, turning on your car's hazard lights, or by lifting the engine hood.  Arrange to get help for any injured persons and try not to panic.
