 Hospital Care: Extricated Patients in Car Accidents

Hospital Care: Extricated Patients in Car Accidents

I’m Ed Smith, a Sacramento Auto Accident Attorney. During a traumatic car accident, there could be several different reasons why someone needs to be extricated on an emergent basis. The first facet of this situation is the status of the car. Sometimes, the vehicle could be leaking dangerous fluids that could be toxic to people inside or could be flammable, possibly leading to an explosion. If the car is unstable, people inside need to be removed before a wrongful death results. The other side of an extrication involves the traumatic injuries that a person inside could have sustained. If injuries are severe and require immediate medical attention, it is essential to remove the person from the vehicle as quickly as possible. Examples of possible catastrophic personal injuries that require immediate attention include cardiac injuries and traumatic brain injuries. The quicker these are evaluated by a medical team, the better the potential outcome on for the patient.
