What is the first thing I should do after a Florida car accident?
Immediately after an accident you want to make sure that you’re in a safe place now and that you’re not going to sustain any further injury. Secondly, Fire Rescue is going to come to the scene. You want to check in with them and have them evaluate you and see if you need any further emergency treatment right now. Whether that be going to the hospital, or whether they’re going to treat you right there. Once you’re comfortable with where you’re at, regarding your injuries, you will want to try and take some pictures of the other vehicle, take some pictures of your own vehicle, take some pictures of the scene overall so we can identify how the accident happened, as well as taking any witness information.
Witnesses tend to disappear relatively quickly so if you can get their name and number so they can be followed up with later on that can be really helpful as your case progresses.
