Florida Injury Attorney Discusses Florida Car Accident - Should I Call the Police?
If you have been involved in a Florida car accident, you should report the accident to the police and obtain a police report. This is particularly important where another driver has caused the car accident, even if it is a minor collision. You should report the car accident to the police even if the at-fault driver admits fault and is apologetic,and pleads with you not to call the police. This is a common scenario that sometimes results in problems for the victim later on. Without a police report, it will be your word against that of the other driver. If you decide to make a claim for your injuries, the other driver's insurance company and their lawyers can take advantage of the fact that there is no police report. Stories can change with respect to how the accident happened, and you can suddenly find that that very nice and apologetic other driver is suddenly blaming you for the accident.
Protect your rights by calling the police and filing a police report of your accident. If you were hurt in the accident, seek medical attention immediately and then call an experienced Florida personal injury attorney to help you get compensation for your injuries and losses.
