As moms, we do our best to keep our kids safe. Nonetheless, do you know what to do if you wind up in a car accident with your child riding as a passenger?
Our friends at the MichieHamlett Law Firm say that most important thing is to think clearly. The first step is to call the police no matter the scale of the accident.
The next step is to get out of the road if you can. Minor accidents can turn into major ones because of what's coming down the road behind you. If you can get to the shoulder, the median, or a parking lot that's the best thing to do.
Lastly, try to resist the urge to move your child. Moving them could make any injuries that he or she has worse. Instead, wait for emergency personnel to arrive.
