Florida Car Accident Lawyer
Car accidents happen every day. Some are just fender benders that damage the car, but leave the occupants untouched. Others are serious events that shut down major highways. Regardless of the type of injury you were involved in, there are a few things you need to make sure you do.
- Call for police assistance. You should absolutely contact the police. Getting a proper report of the accident and all involved will ensure you are protected.
- Get treatment. If you believe you have an injury, even a minor one, you should also seek immediate medical attention. Not all symptoms mean the same thing and major injuries could be hidden under few or no symptoms. By getting immediate treatment you mitigate the harm and speed your recovery time significantly.
- Document the scene. You or someone else needs to take pictures of the vehicles involved, where they are in the road, how they are situated, and any damage received. If you think anything else should be documented, then make sure you make a record of it so that it isn’t missed in later reports.
