Could Drone Technology Be Used to Keep You Safe In Emergency Situations?

Posted On April 24, 2017 In Personal Injury

Truck driver fatigue is a contributor to accidentsNew installations of drone technology are being introduced in the emergency response field. Imagine that you are in a terrible auto accident on the way up a mountain to go swimming in a lake during the summer. Your car is hit on the left side by an errant driver, pushing you off the road, and your car then careens down a rocky cliff to your right. You regain consciousness, and realize your leg is trapped under the vehicle and you are surrounded by rocks. You know that an outsider would have a very difficult time getting to your car since boulders shroud the accident site, however there is an opening overhead.

This is where emergency response can fly a drone in the opening, the drone then can gauge the damages after prompting you to verbally state your location and injuries. This could save the emergency response team countless hours and resources trying to locate the crash site and preparing for what injuries you have. This is an extreme case, but advances in technology are helping to keep you safe in emergency situations. Keep reading for tips if you are trapped in an auto accident and what to do after you are safe.

How to React if You Are Trapped After An Auto Accident

  • Try to remain calm: This will be very difficult to do, but in this situation, panicking will drain you of the limited energy you have left. The more energy you conserve, the longer you will be able to fight to stay alive.
  • Call out for witnesses: Even if you are in a very remote area, there could be more people listening than you think. Try yelling for help periodically, until you get a response. If there were people that saw your accident, they are most likely calling 911 already which is cause for optimism. Utilize your on-star emergency assistance and handsfree calling technology if possible.
  • Have a first aid kit: Having a first aid kit in your car could be the difference between life and death in a devastating car accident like the one we described above. Have a box with a flashlight, blanket, first aid kit, and water.

Take Action to Get the Compensation You Deserve

New advances in technology are making it easier to save lives. Despite this progress, people are seriously injured in auto accidents every day that may not be their fault. If you have been in a serious accident and were not the driver at fault,  car accident attorneys at Mike Love & Associates, LLC are dedicated to help you win coverage for injuries sustained in auto accidents.
