8 Steps to Take After a Car Accident in Florida

8 Steps to take after a car accident

There are several important things to do after you’re in an accident. Here are the top 8 steps to ensure you and your family are taken care of.

The first step is to check yourself, your passengers, and anyone else involved for injuries. Seeking proper medical attention as soon as possible can reduce healing time and medical expenses.

Even injuries that seem minor at the time can become significant if not treated early. Serious injuries may require more immediate attention.

Next, call the police. Getting an official record about the accident, who was involved, the position of the vehicles, etc. will be important to any insurance claim or legal case you have regarding your accident. Contacting the police and having them fill out a report is essential.

Identify all witnesses and collect contact information including phone numbers and email addresses of anyone who saw what happened. This will help determine how the accident happened and who is responsible.

Take pictures of the scene. A picture is worth 1000 words. Taking pictures of the vehicles, the surrounding area, and any damage, tire marks, and the surroundings can be helpful in determining what happened.

Exchange information. Collect the other drivers’ information including their name, phone number, email address, and insurance information.

Remember, when you’re in an
accident;

DON’T CALL DAD, CALL CHAD!

Our Florida Accident Injury Attorneys know the best way to handle your case and make sure the responsible party is held accountable.

Make sure your insurance company is notified and that you file a claim. If you don’t and they find out they may cancel your policy. They will also work with us to ensure you are paid in full for all damages and injuries

In Florida, you only have 14 days to seek medical attention before losing coverage under PIP. Make sure you’re seeking care from a qualified medical provider within that time.

Remember To Seek Help & Support After an Accident. Reach out to us and let us know about the incident and how we can help you in getting the recovery you deserve.
