When car accidents occur, the accident scene can often be dangerous for victims, as they are potentially exposed to fire and debris. Realizing the victims are in danger of further harm, some pedestrians attempt to rescue victims from the accident scene.
In most cases, police and medical officials advise against such actions because of the potential harm to the rescuers and further harm to the victims. However, if these pedestrians attempt the rescue anyway, they should be aware that they will be unlikely to sue for personal injury damages if they are injured in the rescue attempt.
