Follow These Steps
Recent accident scenes can quickly become more dangerous due to current traffic patterns or vehicle conditions, therefore it is essential to assure the safety of yourself and your passengers. Either move your car to the side of the road or a safe location, stay in your vehicle if safe to do so, or leave the vehicle and move to a safe location.
Check yourself for injuries, and then proceed to check other passengers to assess all injuries related to the accident. As well, if the situation allows considering oncoming traffic, check on passengers in the other vehicle(s).
Dial 911 as soon as possible to assure the quick arrival of emergency responders. You will be asked for your location, passengers and injuries involved in the accident, and the description of cars involved, so have this information ready and available to share.
Attorneys need to have the ability to recreate the scene to better help fight your case. Therefore, it’s essential to take pictures or record video of the scene to preserve details that will not be available once first responders arrive. You can share this evidence with the police, but be sure to also maintain a copy or backup.
Get medical attention when paramedics arrive, and if necessary take ambulance to the hospital. If injury is not serious, follow up with your primary care doctor. When on scene make sure to get a full health assessment as some injuries can show up later which can impact your recovery, for example, internal bleeding.
Make sure to get the information of all individual involved in the accident, including but not limited to, drivers license, vehicle registration, insurance information, and telephone number. Make sure to also exchange your information with others involved. When police arrive, answer any questions asked but never admit fault.
Post accident, make sure to contact your insurance company as most accidents are covered by your Florida insurance, this should include medical bills as well. This DOES NOT guarantee a full or partial settlement, as your claim could also get denied or reduced. DO NOT take payment or sign any paperwork without talking to an experienced Florida Attorney.
