Unless there is concern about the vehicle catching fire, then you are correct. NOT moving the victim is the correct call.

It depends, if the car is leaking fluid like gasoline where it can catch on fire, you get the person out of the car.

Best Answer

That really depends on whether there was imminent danger of the car exploding. Without the proper training, moving a MVA victim puts them at risk of developing a spinal cord injury.

Best Answer

bad move unless there was imminent danger to the injured party if they somehow caused him more injury they could be liable in civil court for damages hope the state u live in has a good samaritan law to preclude this possibilty

That's a baaaad call. It's happened a few times, but there was a car full of co-workers and they were in a horrific accident. A guy pulled his burnt, injured co-worker out of the flaming car. She was paralyzed from the legs down.....and sued him.

Best Answer

Bad unless he needed cpr or the car was on fire.

Best Answer

Bad move if the car wasn't on fire. If he had a broken back moving him wrong could paralyze him.

Best Answer

I thought so!

Best Answer

Good call if the car was in flames or the occupant faced some other immediate danger by remaining in the vehicle. Otherwise it was a bad call.
