I was in a car accident, what should I do?

BAM! You have been in a car accident. Shock is the natural reaction we all feel at that moment, but what do we do once the shock fades and we need to address the reality of the situation? Once all involved parties are in a safe place, dial 911. While police reports are not admissible in Florida courts, a police officer’s initial investigation will bear great weight in determining who was at fault for insurance purposes.

Once the police are on their way, take pictures if you can. Take not only pictures of the vehicles involved, but of your surroundings. These initial pictures will go a long way if the involved parties have different versions of the accident.

Next, if you’re injured, seek medical help as soon as possible. Failing to be proactive in addressing your injury needs could potentially harm your case and you could miss out on benefits you are entitled to. Finally, call us at Dumas & Sanclemente law.
