Did you know that there are about 25,000 reported auto accidents in Pinellas County every year? Being in an auto accident can be a traumatizing experience and life-changing. So here are a few tips, if in fact you are in an accident. First, if you need emergency medical care your health always takes priority. But if you don’t have to go directly to the hospital, contact law enforcement. Do not go and form some kind of handshake deal and rely on the other person to take responsibility after the accident. Because remember your insurance company is not a party to that handshake and they are not bound by that. Next, make sure you document the scene, take pictures of how the cars wound up, pictures of the damage to the vehicles and any injuries that you see. Also sometimes you'll have witnesses that are standing around an accident scene that will come up to you and say “Hey, I saw what happened”. So don't rely on a police officer to take down that person’s information, do it yourself. Because I see time and time again that information does not wind up in a police report and it's gone forever. Finally, contact your own insurance company and set up a claim. Make sure that you do not give any type of recorded statement to the other driver’s Insurance Company until you have first spoken to a lawyer. At that point, once you hire a lawyer, he or she will be able to guide you through the next steps in the case, so good luck.
