When to Take an Ambulance After a Car AccidentAfter a car accident, you may be feeling dizziness, shocked, and a number of other things. If you are injured, you may also be wondering if you should take an ambulance ride to the hospital. Taking an ambulance ride is not something you’ve probably thought about until you are severely hurting. If your injuries from the car accident are severe enough, you will not even be asked if you would like an ambulance to take you to the emergency room. However, if you are conscious after the crash, a responding officer or emergency personnel at the crash scene may ask you if you would like an ambulance. Many people hesitate to take a ride in an ambulance because of cost. However, even if your injuries do not appear severe immediately, you could still be seriously injured and taking an ambulance to rush to the hospital could be a good idea. In any case, if you are in doubt as to if you are injured enough to take an ambulance, do it. The following are some signs that you should take an ambulance.

When to Take an Ambulance After a Car Accident

If you are experiencing any of the following signs or symptoms, you should take an ambulance ride to the emergency room to be evaluated for your injuries.

  • Dizziness
  • Blurred vision
  • Heavy bleeding
  • Pounding headache
  • Broken bones or suspected broken bones
  • Loss of any senses including sight or hearing

If you do not feel comfortable or safe driving yourself away from a car accident scene, you should take an ambulance. Even if you feel stable and uninjured, you should not feel pressured to drive yourself before being evaluated by a medical professional.

Keep in mind that driving yourself to the hospital after an accident can be extremely dangerous for you as well as all other drivers on the road. You do not want to end up in another accident.
