Practical Steps to Take Following a Car Accident
1. Seek Medical Attention
Getting medical care as soon as possible can help reduce the chances of long-term health issues. Don’t turn down medical assessment because you don’t think you have any visible injuries. Remember, in Florida, you only have 14 days from the date of an accident to get medical care, if involved in an auto related accident.
2. Call The Police
Notifying the police is essential following a car accident. They need to investigate and write up a detailed report noting what happened, all of the parties listed and their contact and insurance information, as well as a narrative of what happened. As with the medical report, this documentation could provide critical evidence to support your injury claim
3. Gather Information
You’ll want to gather information from everyone involved in the car accident, such as:
- Contact info
- Insurance info
- License plate numbers
We recommend also getting the names and contact info of any potential witnesses.
4. Record Details
Recording details about the car accident can prove extremely helpful to your claim. You should note specific things like the time of day and the moments leading up to the incident. It’s also good to take pictures of different aspects of the incident, including:
- Vehicle positions
- Your injuries
- Property damage
- Incident location
- Skid marks
