If you happen to be involved in a
car accident in Orlando, Florida then there are a few things you should do immediately following the accident.
Call 911 right away. This is due to the fact that if you do not have an accident report, then
the insurance companies will act as if the accident never happened. One
Attorney Salzmann was involved in, the woman begged her not to call the police for several
reasons, but if she hadn’t then she would have had to foot the bill
for all of her medical bills. This is something that you do not want to
happen, so no matter what make sure you call 911 to have a police report filed.
Get witness information such as their name, cell phone number, and their address. It’s best to make certain you have people to relay the facts in
case the other driver tries to change their story.
Take photos following the accident with your cell phone. Make sure you capture where the accident happened, the damage to both
vehicles, and any skid marks on the road. This will help you later on
down the road when you are working with an attorney.
Seeking medical attention whether or not you are feeling pain immediately
after the accident will help you in the long run as well. After an accident, you may have too much adrenaline rushing through your
body to feel any pain, but chances are that it may settle in a few hours
later. So make sure to get medical treatment following the accident.
Finally when you speak to the insurance company, do not speak about your
injuries without discussing things first with your attorney. They might twist your words, which could end up hurting your case later
on. By having an
Orlando personal injury lawyer by your side who can speak to the insurance companies on your behalf could
end up greatly helping your case in the long run.
