Four Things To Do After A Car Accident

There are many thoughts that go through a person's mind if they have been involved in a car accident. For those who have suffered an auto accident injury, determining whether the insurance company is offering a fair settlement is difficult.

At Busciglio & Sheridan Law Group, we understand how stressful it can be to go up against an insurance company after a car wreck. Our lawyers are experienced litigators and are willing to fight insurance companies to secure greater compensation for our clients.

4 Steps To Take If You Have Been Involved In A Car Accident

It is important for every driver involved in an automobile accident to take the following actions:

1: Exchange Information

Florida law requires drivers to stop at the scene of an accident. After stopping, exchange insurance information with the other drivers who were involved in the accident. If anyone suffered injuries or property damage exceeding $500, notify the police.

2: Seek Medical Attention

No matter how minor an injury may seem, everyone involved in a car accident should receive medical attention. Even seemingly minor injuries like whiplash can have lasting effects. Seeing a doctor after a car accident will help strengthen claims made when seeking compensation for an injury.

3: Document Details Of The Accident

Take photos of any damage and write down important facts about the accident, including license plate numbers, objects present at the scene of the accident and any factors that may have contributed to the accident.

4: Speak With An Attorney

For those who suffered injuries during a car accident, discussing the details of an accident with an attorney is helpful. This can help increase the chances of receiving a more favorable outcome.
