Today I’d like to talk to you about what to do at the scene of an accident.

What to do at the Scene of an Accident in Tampa, FL

If you’ve been involved in an accident, either a motor vehicle accident or some kind of accident on someone’s property, there’s three things you need to do immediately:

  1. First of all, you need to call 911 for no other reason than you need to make sure that you’re in appropriate physical condition and that you aren’t going to ultimately cause additional injury to yourself.
  2. Second of all, it’s important that you take photographs of what’s going on. Take photographs of the car, take photographs of the scene, or, if you’re at some place where you’ve been injured or someone else has been injured, take photographs of the vehicles that are around so we understand the nature of what you went through.
  3. And third, and most importantly, what people don’t do a lot, is call a family member and ask them to come to the scene. That way, if you’re dealing with some difficult people or difficult circumstances, you have someone there to help.
