At-Fault Driver?

Florida is a comparative negligence state.

This means that even if you were cited for the accident by law enforcement, the other driver can be held responsible for a portion of your medical care and property damage.

When you are involved in an accident, whether you were found to be negligent or not, follow these steps:


2. Take pictures of the scene and all the vehicles involved in the accident.

3. Call the police and stay at the scene so you can properly complete a police report. While you’re waiting get the other person’s name, number, license plate number, car make and model and insurance information.

4.Get to a doctor to be checked for your injuries within 14 days of the accident or your claim may be jeopardized.

5. Call your own insurance company to report the claim and obtain a claim number.

6. Do not give any recorded statements to any insurance companies, including your own.
