As straight-forward as all of this seems, it's important to be prepared for potential barriers that will arise as more information comes to light. The supposed minor injuries, for example, can lead some folks to take the situation too lightly.

Fortunately, a man that came to me a while back didn't do that. He sought out help, and it turned out his "minor" back pain was actually a ruptured disk. Days after the crash, he could barely move, yet reports made the crash sound like little more than a fender bender. I certainly hope nothing like that happens here, but it's crucial that steps are taken to know the victims are going to get the help they deserve.
