What Is the First Thing I Should Do After a Florida Car Accident?

I strongly believe the best thing to do is for you to find a competent attorney and call them up immediately and ask them what you should do. Normally, at the scene of an accident, people have cell phones and they can document the cars, the damage to the cars, both of the vehicles. If you have any blood or if there is any other visible signs that you think support or defend your position, I would take photographs of those because once you leave the scene, it’s hard to go back and recreate what actually happened at the scene. However, if the accident is very, very serious, I would not hesitate to call an attorney from the scene, as most competent attorneys will acknowledge and recognize the severity of the accident and might actually go over to the accident scene themselves and do what’s necessary.
