WHAT TO DO WHEN A CHILD IS IN A CAR ACCIDENT?

Call the police and let them know immediately that your child was in the car and that you would like emergency medical services to come to the scene and evaluate your child. It is recommended that you have your child evaluated in an emergency room following a car accident,  even if they seem to be fine. Although children are quite resilient  and tend to recover quickly after a car accident,  Pediatricians are best qualified to evaluate your child’s injuries following a car accident. After you have taken your child to the emergency room, you should schedule a visit with your child’s pediatrician. If your child is complaining of neck or back pain, you should schedule an evaluation with a chiropractor, because they are trained to evaluate and treat children for back injuries.
