After the Accident

car crash-ask my attorneys

5 Simple Rules to Follow


1. Call 911

Report the accident to law enforcement. Police officers will properly document your case which provides essential information in any motor vehicle accident. DO NOT get pursuaded not to call the police as they may be the only independent witness willing to testify on your behalf.

2. Call your car accident attorney in Plantation - protect your rights!

Consulting your attorney is probably the most important action to take after an accident. Your attorney will make sure your rights are protected and he or she will also provide advice on how to make sure you are fully compensated for your vehicle and that you are getting the best medical treatment available. Keep in mind that insurance companies often want to take statements immediately after an accident; it is therefore crucial that you have received legal advice before providing a statement. Call 954-961-5100 in Broward County or 1-877-961-5100 elsewhere throughout Florida to speak with a car attorney in Plantation - a member of the Legal Accident Defense Team.

3. Take Photographs

“A picture is worth a thousand words.” Keep that sentence in mind and use your smartphone camera  (or any other available camera) to take pictures of the scene and vehicles if there is visible damage. Also, if you happen to have visible injuries,  photograph them, as well. Remember, however, not to interfere with the ongoing police investigation. If you’re unable to take pictures at the scene of the accident, take them as soon as possible after the accident.

4. Write it Down

What may appear to be a clear and straightforward accident almost never is as one imagines. There are various issues surrounding your typical accident, including the most important of them all: insurance coverage. Is there insurance coverage? Again, the answer to that question is not as simple as some may think. Our car accident attorney in Plantation says: As per standard procedure, the investigating police officer should obtain all necessary information. If, for some reason, the police do not respond to the accident, try to:

  • obtain the name, address and telephone number of all persons involved in the accident (drivers and passengers)
  • if there are witnesses, ask them for their contact information, too, so that your car accident attorney in Plantation can contact them in the future.
  • obtain information about insurance (ask to see the insurance card for all vehicles involved in the accident).

5. Never Admit Fault

There are many factors in establishing fault and only your Legal Accident Team is equipped with sufficient knowledge and experience to properly determine liability while protecting your rights.

  • SARA T.

    I was referred to Attorney Ralph Gonzalez to take care of injuries sustained from a car accident where I was rear ended. Not only did they make sure I got the care I needed, but were extremely professional and thorough in communication to explain the processes, follow ups, and expectations. Just closed the case after some time with a bigger settlement than expected, and I couldn't be happier with the treatment/services received from this office. Will 100% recommend to everyone. Thank you!
