I have been asked many times, “What is the first thing you do if you are involved in a car accident?” The first and most important thing is your health. You must make sure that you are fine. You must make sure that you are not injured. Not all injuries are obvious like fractures. Some injuries are soft tissue injuries, and those injuries take a while to progress, cause pain, and become a major problem. I myself was in a car accident back in 1969. I thought I was fine; there was no damage to the car. Everything looked wonderful. I was so happy to get out of there and be done with everything, and then the next day I had neck pain, and for the next year and a half I wore a neck brace and went to therapy.
I did the wrong thing. I didn’t think about my health. If there’s an ambulance, get in it. If you’re a little queasy, take care of yourself. It’s better to over-take care of yourself than to under-take care of yourself and find out a day or two later, just like me, that you made a mistake.
