What is the first thing I should do after a Florida car accident?Return to FAQ Videos
The first thing you should do after a car accident is seek medical attention. You maybe injured even if you don’t think you are at the time. The adrenaline that’s pumping sometimes hides the injuries that you have. It’s very important to seek proper medical treatment. Also under Florida no-fault law if you don’t seek medical treatment within 14 days you have waived your rights under a no-fault system. You should also ensure that you’ve contacted the police and try to document the accident scene with photographs or video tape if possible. Also last, contact your own insurance company and make sure they are aware of the accident.
