Vehicle accidents can cause catastrophic injuries

A vehicle accident can affect a Denver driver in any number of ways. It may be a simple "fender bender" that causes the victim to lose some time and expend some energy in order to repair their vehicle and deal with their insurance claims. It may be a more serious collision that leaves the victim feeling sore and requires a visit to the doctor and a treatment plan in order to recuperate. However, as many of our readers know, some accidents are significantly worse and can cause victims to suffer serious injuries that can threaten their mobility, their ability to communicate and, in some cases, their very lives.

What should you do immediately following an accident?

If you believe a spine or neck injury may have occurred to one of the victims, do not move them unless they are in immediate peril.
