Oftentimes a police officer who’s investigating an accident that just occurred is going to ask you some questions about how you’re feeling, if you’re okay, have you been injured. And the reason the police officer is doing that is to see if he or she can provide you with medical assistance, by either calling an ambulance, or tending to you themselves. If you’re injured and you’re feeling discomfort, or you’re feeling hurt at an accident scene, let the police officer know. People think they’re fine, they’re startled, they’re in shock, they just want to get home, they just want to get home to their kids, maybe they have kids in the car with them, they were in the middle of an errand, they’re not thinking. If you’re hurt let the police officer know that, ask for medical professionals that come and take a look at you, and let them make an assessment of you as medical professionals during this time where you may not be feeling your best and you may be a little surprised and alarmed and shocked at what just happened.
