What To Do After an Accident. (Video)

Tampa and Sarasota, Florida Personal Injury attorney Dennis Hernandez Dennis Hernandez explains what you should do after an Auto Accident.

Things can be chaotic immediately after an Auto Accident, but following some basic steps can make filing your claim a little easier:

Think about your safety and those around you before thinking about insurance; if someone is injured, call 911.


Stay calm; being in a car crash is scary but getting upset will make things worse.


There’s no need to call the police if you only have a dinged bumper or a scratched door.

 

If the accident is worse than a fender bender, always ask the police for a copy of the accident report. It may take up to a couple of days before it is filed. The officer’s opinion of the accident will be useful if the drivers have a dispute about who was to blame. The police report will also have the officer’s information on it in case the officer is needed to testify.

 

Note: Neither the other driver nor the police will need your Social Security number; don’t give it to them.
