Who Will They Call If You Are Hurt In An Accident?

Emergency Personnel Need to Know Who to Call

When it comes to being hurt in an accident, we all think that it will never happen to us. It’s always the “other guy.” Nobody wants to prepare for when the unthinkable happens.

But if you are seriously injured or incapacitated in an accident, you want to make sure that the authorities are able to quickly contact your loved ones. Nobody wants to sit alone in a hospital or have a stranger making medical decisions because the authorities didn’t know who to notify. Now the Maryland Motor Vehicle Administration allows you to add three emergency contacts to your personal information using your driver’s license number.

Here is the MVA’s website. You will want to find “Do It Now Online” on the right-hand side, and click “Emergency Contacts.” Then continue to select “Emergency Contacts” in the next menu, and proceed from there. Hopefully, you will never need it, but it only takes a few minutes to get a little more peace of mind.
