County Line - Car Accident Pain South FL
June 06, 2020

Even though there are less cars on the road given the Coronavirus effects on schools, businesses, restaurants, and more, accidents are still occurring with regularity. Most incidents being recorded are a result of speeding. Statistics show an increase in speeding among those still commuting, likely a result of less traffic. As you know, increased speeding, even with less traffic, means increased risk of car accidents and injuries. Plus, on top of the normal challenges of being involved in an accident, the Coronavirus outbreak compounds the difficulty and stress involved. 

With all that in mind, here are some helpful tips should you be involved in a car accident during the COVID-19 pandemic.  

Handling a Car Accident Safely – Even in the Time of Coronavirus

  • Never leave the accident scene.
  • Call authorities or emergency responders for those injured.
  • If possible, move vehicles from oncoming traffic. Use hazard lights or flares to warn other drivers.
  • Document the scene (weather, road conditions, damages) with photos and notes, and collect relevant information from the other driver, as well as witnesses (name, telephone number, license plate information, driver’s license number, and insurance information). 
  • Maintain social distancing to the best of your ability. Keep six feet apart, exchanging information verbally. Send texts to verify phone numbers and text required information to one another. Wear your protective mask.
  • Visit County Line Chiropractic. Even minor car accidents can result in whiplash or other accident pain and injuries. 
  • Our patients do not need a lawyer before seeking treatment after an accident. At County Line Chiropractic, we will help them with the entire process. 

Get the Necessary Medical Attention

County Line Chiropractic - Car Accident Pain

If you do not require immediate emergency treatment, it is always wise to seek an evaluation following an accident. Call on a chiropractor for an in-person visit. Whether or not you have pain following your accident, seeking medical attention is crucial. Often, after a car accident, injuries are not apparent, but may present days later, and a medical professional (your chiropractor) can diagnose any injuries and recommend necessary treatment following your accident. Getting a diagnosis and creating a treatment plan are key to your future health and wellness. Having this information on hand will be immensely helpful when communicating with lawyers.
