At the Kimsey Law Firm, P.A., our experienced Florida car accident attorney knows that people injured in collisions often face uncertainty. Below, he provides answers to their questions based on years of experience.
What should I do after a car accident in Florida?
Taking the right steps after an accident can be a vital way to protect your access to compensation. Some things to do after a car accident include:
- Check yourself and any passengers for injuries.
- If possible, get to safety.
- Seek medical attention, whether it’s emergency medical assistance at the scene or a doctor examination as soon as possible after the accident.
- Call the authorities to report the accident.
- Exchange contact and insurance information with any other drivers involved.
- Document the accident, including recording the location of the accident and information about the vehicles involved and taking photos of the scene, if possible.
- Contact your insurance company to report the accident.
- Discuss your accident with an experienced attorney.
What is the 14-day accident law in Florida?
Under Florida law, injured people have 14 days to seek treatment after an accident in order to receive insurance benefits to address the cost of those injuries. As a result, seeking immediate medical care is one way for people to protect their access to benefits, even if their injuries do not seem severe at the time.
Who pays for damage in a car accident in Florida?
Florida is a no-fault state, which means that people can receive benefits through their own insurance policy no matter who was at fault in the accident. However, these insurance policies might not cover all the costs related to an accident. In these cases, injured people may want to explore options like a personal injury lawsuit, which can provide vital compensation after a crash caused by another person’s negligence.
Does your insurance go up after an accident in Florida?
Florida law prohibits insurance companies from increasing the cost of your insurance in most cases. However, your costs may rise if the insurance company finds that you were at fault for the accident.
