Know Where To Go
Most likely the EMT unit that responds to your accident will take you to the nearest hospital emergency room to get you the most immediate care possible. If you are severely injured and require trauma care, you would need to be transported to a hospital with a trauma unit.
It is important that you know about the different hospitals in Bucks County so that if you need to get yourself to an emergency room you will know where to go. It sometimes happens that people don’t always know they are injured at the time of their accident; sometimes just feeling startled and a bit in shock. You may not actually start feeling car accident pain until the days following the accident.
Regardless of when you realize you are injured, receiving the proper diagnosis and care is extremely important. Follow your doctor’s instructions about the treatment that will best heal your injuries.
