Importance of Calling 911 After an Accident

Accidents come in many forms: automobile, boating, plane, train, slip and fall, dog bites, work related and defective products just to name a few. The most important thing in any accident is to immediately call 911, and not another number like 311 or a medical response company according to county and health district officials. No mater how common or rare an accident is, reporting it should be one of the first things that happen after an accident.

An accident occurred at a Las Vegas casino a couple years ago and they were fined for their failure to do so after a man fell 40 feet to his death. A major reason this is so important is the Southern Nevada’s dual response system that sends a fire department and a paramedic team simultaneously to the scene of an accident.
