I'm an engineering student taking a course called traffic safety. A project in the course gives a problem to solve which is:
A cousin of yours have accidentally hit a pedestrian while getting out of the parking lot. The pedestrian, a man in his 70s, was taken to the hospital with serious injuries (internal bleeding and fractured rib) with the help of the Red Cross.
You came to the hospital and knew that the injured person is dead.
Kindly list the steps that your cousin should follow from the moment he hit the pedestrian to the moment of death. You should mention who should he called, who should come to the hospital, who should write the accident report and what should the report include and what will happen to your cousin if:
- Case A: The family of the victim have decided to prosecute.
- Case B: The family of the victim did not decide to prosecute.
What i did so far is:
I stated that my cousin should first move his car away to prevent further collisions, then instantly call the ambulance and the police. He should also ask for any witness to remain in the scene. When police arrives, the officer collects the information such as ID, road condition, age, gender, driving experience, phone number, location, time... Then he should call insurance company and report the accident to them. Finally, call the attorney.
My question is how can i elaborate further in discussing this, my instructor requires it to be 3-4 pages. I'm barely being able to write one page. Any idea on how can I elaborate more on this? what should i also mention, should I search for traffic laws in my country and mention them?
Not asking to solve my entire homework, just some hints or tips maybe?
