What To Do If Youre In An Auto Accident

Representing Orlando, Tampa, Miami and Nearby Areas of Florida

When you’re involved in an auto accident, it can be hard to think straight for most people. But before it happens, commit these tips to memory. First, get medical attention for you and anyone else involved, even if there are no obvious injuries. If you don’t feel the effects right away, it often only takes a few minutes or hours to begin to feel some pain or discomfort that was initially masked by your adrenaline flow. Second, call the authorities and have the accident investigated, even if it appears initially to be relatively minor. Without an accident report, there’s no public record the accident happened and it could be your word against some unscrupulous motorist. Try to keep a camera in your car, and if you don’t have a camera, don’t forget that most cell phones have cameras. Take photos of the scene and the vehicles. Finally, get information regarding the other vehicles and drivers, the location of the accident, etc.
