What Should You Do In Florida When In An Accident?


1. Breathe and make certain you are okay. Sometimes we do not realize that injuries have occurred due to shock.

2. Contact the police and let the officer know if an ambulance or fire rescue is needed.

Have the following items ready:

1. Your drivers license.

2. Your insurance card.

3. Your registration. Typically you receive an updated one in the month of your birthday, so put that in a place it is easily accessible in your car.

4. Once the police ask you what happened be certain to a take breaths when explaining. Often, when an accident occurs the adrenaline is running high and the speed of talking can increase. Try to remain calm so that the officer can understand what occurred.
