I know because I have been there myself. The severity of an auto accident can range from a simple fender bender to a multi car pile up. Injuries from an auto collision can range from a few bumps and bruises to life changing paralysis and brain injury and at times will result in death.

Important Steps after a Car Accident
Contact a Car Accident Lawyer
I would be pleased to represent you in your auto accident claim. There are many important steps to take in the days immediately following the accident to protect your legal claim. Some of these important actions include examining the vehicle or location before any repairs or changes are made, preserving evidence and protecting your right to recover.
EXCHANGE INSURANCE INFORMATION
Contact Your Insurance Company
Florida Law requires PIP (Personal Injury Protection) as a part of your automobile insurance coverage. It is crucial to let them know you will be making a claim. You will also need to file a claim for any property damage.
Have your Attorney Contact the At-Fault Drivers Insurance
If there is one piece of advise I hope you take away from this webpage it is this: Do not give a statement to the adverse Drivers Insurance Company. There may be 1%-5% of the time when that is appropriate but it is best to let an attorney decide when that time is.
If there are witnesses politely ask them for their name and phone number. They may be hesitant to cooperate but let them know it is just as a precaution
Seek Medical Attention
I generally see two types of reactions to a car accident. The first is when someone has broken bone, an open wound or hits their head and loses consciousness. In these cases an ambulance is usually called so medical help comes to the victim. The second and more common scenario is when a victim has an accident but due to the shock and embarrassment they want to leave the area as quickly as possible. In these cases the person goes home and simply wants the incident to pass. Unfortunately once the emotions and shock wear off, the pain arrives. Sometime it is hours later or the next morning. It is important to seek medical help as soon after your accident as possible because you cannot always determine the extent of your injury without and proper evaluation.
