Infographic: What to do after a car accident

If you’ve been in a car accident, knowing what to do next can be very overwhelming. Especially if you’ve been injured, protecting your legal rights is likely not the first thing on your mind, and we understand that. We strive to educate the South Florida community about the legal rights associated with car and motorcycle accidents whenever possible.

Remember that no matter what promises are made by the other parties involved in the accident, you should always call 911 and file a police report. The police report is often one of the most important pieces of evidence when we work on any car accident case. When you call the police, a firetruck and/or ambulance will often join them at the scene.

If you are injured or there’s a possibility you may be injured, you may be transported to a nearby hospital for observation and proper care. Depending on your specific situation, that may be a good time to contact your Fort Lauderdale Personal Injury Attorneys. You should contact us as soon as possible after an accident.

Here are some tips to keep in mind after your car or motorcycle accident: 

  • Whenever possible, make sure that you and other parties are out of danger.
  • Do not panic or attempt to leave the scene.
  • Do not admit liability.
  • Do not accept any direct offer from any other parties involved in the accident.
  • Do not attempt to make repairs on your vehicle without speaking to your attorney first.
  • Be careful when signing any documents, which could impact your case later on.

In every car or motorcycle accident, the expenses can pile up. You’ll need to repair your vehicle, pay your medical bills and more. Our job at Abramowitz, Pomerantz & Morehead, P.A. is to get you the maximum amount of money to cover your expenses and any additional damages. For example, we may be able to get financial compensation for the time you are out of work while recovering from your injuries.

The sooner you get in touch with us, the more we can do to help you. Contact us as soon as possible after an accident.
