    February 4 2022

    The new year has not returned everything to normal. While COVID-19 cases are starting to decrease, they remain high in most parts of the U.S. COVID-19 can make everyday occurrences stressful and can aggravate difficult situations. One difficult situation that you may unfortunately find yourself in while driving in Las Vegas is a car accident. If you find yourself in this situation, remain calm and read on because in this article we discuss how to handle a car accident during the pandemic.

    A Las Vegas area car accident can be a difficult experience. If you are injured in a Las Vegas area car accident, contact a personal injury lawyer. A personal injury lawyer will help to protect your rights and ensure you receive maximum compensation.

    Remain Calm

    Being involved in a car accident can be an upsetting experience. The best thing to do after a car accident is to try to remain calm. Remaining calm can help you handle the accident. Remind yourself to breathe.

    Remember, everyone may be under a lot of stress. Stress that has nothing to do with the accident. No matter how the other driver reacts to you, you should try to remain calm.

    Call 911

    Following an accident, especially an accident where you are injured, you should contact the authorities to report the accident and get medical attention. The response may look a little different during the pandemic. Police officers and medical personnel may be wearing masks. Additionally, there may be delays related to medical care because of the pandemic.

    At the Scene

    COVID-19 may impact how you interact with other drivers and witnesses at the accident scene. However, it will not impact what you need to do at the accident scene.

    At the accident scene you should do the following:

    • Gather information. Obtain all of the driver’s insurance information. Gather the names and contact information of witnesses and anyone else involved in the accident.
    • Document the accident. Take pictures of the accident scene and injuries. You can also write down your recollection of what happened.

    While COVID-19 may not impact what you need to do at an accident scene, it will impact how you complete the process. Keep the following in mind:

    • Before getting out of your car you should put on a mask. You may also keep six feet between you and anyone you talk to at the accident scene.
    • Other drivers and witnesses may be reluctant to approach and/or talk to you due to COVID-19 fears. You can’t force someone to be near you. However, the other driver does have to provide you with their contact information and insurance information.
    • Once you have finished your accident scene interactions, you should use hand sanitizer. You should also find a place where you can wash your hands with soap and water.

    We hope these tips help you stay safe. If another driver injures you in a Las Vegas car accident, contact the experienced team at Anthem Injury Lawyers.

    Post-Crash Care

    The COVID-19 pandemic has impacted healthcare. Some facilities have found themselves turning away patients because they are so overwhelmed. If you are seeking medical care after a car accident, be patient. Understand that there may be delays in obtaining medical care. If you are trying to receive treatment for accident injuries and unable to schedule an appointment with your doctor of choice, you should try contacting other facilities. Remember that there are delays occurring in every industry, including the healthcare industry.

    If you are having difficulties obtaining medical treatment, contact a personal injury lawyer. A personal injury lawyer will be able to help you with the post-crash care process.

    Vehicle Repairs and Replacements

    A car accident means dealing with vehicle repairs and potentially having to purchase a new vehicle. The pandemic has slowed many services, including vehicle repairs so you will need to be patient.

    The pandemic has also impacted prices for car parts. Be aware that a car repair now may cost significantly more than it would have a few years ago.

    Car prices have also increased during the pandemic. If you have to purchase a new vehicle after an accident, you may be facing sticker shock. Prepare yourself for higher prices and lower inventory.

    Contact a Personal Injury Lawyer

    Even during a pandemic, you should still contact a personal injury lawyer if you have been injured in a car accident. Contact Anthem Injury Lawyers today at (702) 857-6000 to make an appointment for a free consultation.
