Ted Babbitt, Florida car accident injury lawyer, wrote an article for the Palm Beach Post on what to do immediately after a car crash.

There are specific steps you should take immediately after a car crash to ensure not only your health and safety but also your right to file a claim for compensation if the accident warrants one.

  1. Call the police then stay where you are
  2. Gather evidence– take pictures of the accident scene and gather statements from witnesses.
  3. Call your insurance company– you are obligated to report an accident to the insurance company.
  4. Seek medical help-keep records of your diagnosis, after-care instructions, medications prescribed, and follow-up visits.
  5. Call an attorney– if you intend to file a claim, it is best to do so under the guidance of an experienced car accident attorney.
