How to Reduce Your Stress at the Accident Scene

One of the most stressful and anxiety-inducing events in one’s life is a car accident. No matter how the accident happened and regardless of who was at fault, it’s important to remain calm at the accident scene. 

Here are some things you can try to reduce your stress at the accident scene.

Take a moment to just breathe

Immediately following your accident - before you get out of your car, it’s a good idea to just take a moment to breathe and to check if you or any of your passengers are injured. It’s also important to take a quick look around your car and make sure it’s safe for you and your passengers to exit the vehicle. 

Call for medical assistance if anyone is injured

If anyone is injured and in need of medical assistance then it’s important to call for help as soon as possible.

  • Date and time
  • Location
  • Names and contact details of drivers, passengers
