What should I do if I was injured in a car accident?
I’m often asked, “What should I do if I’ve been injured in a car accident here in Florida?” First and foremost, get medical treatment. After the crash, you may be hyped up on the adrenaline. You may not even feel all of the injuries that you’ve taken on. Don’t automatically turn away the ambulance. They call paramedics and the EMT people to the accident scene because car accidents are dangerous and they involve typically very serious injuries, even low-impact/low-speed collisions.
The next thing to do is to call an experienced trial counsel to help you navigate your case. A good attorney will understand that evidence can grow stale. What we do is we send an investigator out to the scene to take photographs of both vehicles.
If you’ve been involved in the accident and you have your cell phone, take photographs. Take photographs of all areas of your vehicle that were involved. Same with the other car, including the license plate. Get names and take photographs of the driver licenses of any witnesses that have contact information. Those are the critical things that a person should do when he or she has been involved in a motor vehicle accident here in Florida.
