Do the Right Thing
In an emergency, you should always seek help by calling 9-1-1 or your emergency system and seek higher medical care for individuals with serious injuries. Once you begin to provide care, abandoning your casualty could result in liability for negligence.1 However, if the scene becomes even more dangerous, leaving to keep yourself safe is always smart.
