Have you been involved in a car accident in Irvine and suffered injuries? Irvine commuters stuck in heavy traffic and start-and-stop gridlock often face the very realistic possibility of becoming involved in a car accident while driving during their daily commute. The frustration of traffic congestion can turn into fear and pain after being injured in an accident. Many people that are involved in accidents are in a state of shock after the accident, and do not know how to proceed.
The most immediate issue is to make sure that everyone in their vehicle is safe, and as soon as possible, they should move their vehicle to a safe area (such as the shoulder of the freeway/road). At this time, they should call emergency medical services and/or the police if necessary. It is very important to visit an ER, Urgent Care or your Primary Care Physician for a thorough examination after any motor vehicle accident. Many injuries and their symptoms can remain hidden for weeks. It is not uncommon to experience delayed onset of pain and symptoms, particularly for neck and back injuries including sprains and strains.
