What Should I Do If I’ve Been Involved in a Car Accident in Fort Lauderdale Florida?

In the aftermath of a car accident, try to stay calm and always remain at the scene. If you can, and it is safe to do so, assess the situation and call 911 if you think someone has sustained injuries. You should also collect the contact information from anyone who was involved in the accident and from anyone who might have witnessed the accident.

In addition, take some pictures at the scene to document any damage, and be sure to jot down some notes as soon after the crash as possible so that you can more easily remember what happened. When you collect this evidence and information, you place yourself in a better position if you decide to file an insurance claim or lawsuit in the future.

Finally, it is crucial to remember that if you speak with anyone involved in the accident or you answer any questions posed by law enforcement, do not admit fault and do not sign anything until you consult with an attorney.

Filing Car Accident Lawsuits in Fort Lauderdale Florida

When it comes to car accidents, Florida is considered a “no-fault” state. This basically means that any injuries or other damages that you might sustain in a car accident are generally covered by your own car insurance. But, if your injuries are permanent or disfiguring, you likely can either file a claim with the at-fault driver’s insurance company or file a lawsuit against the driver or anyone else who might have caused or contributed to the accident.

When filing a lawsuit in Florida, you usually have to establish that another individual or entity was negligent, or responsible for the accident. Florida law requires that you file your lawsuit within four years from the date of your accident or injury.
