Driving in Sarasota During the Busiest Time of Year

How much is my car accident case worth?

Each case varies depending on many factors such as the amount of damage / injuries the victim sustains physically and/or mentally along with how much of their property damage they sustained depending on the specific scenario.

How much money does a lawyer cost?

Studies have shown that car accidents happen more frequently in the winter months than in the summer. As we always knew the gorgeous weather always drew a crowd but did you know that there are now more than 800 people moving to the state of Florida every day?

If you're new to the area or simply don't know your way around, the last thing you want is to get into a Car Accident. But unfortunately, with more cars on the road comes a greater risk of accidents. That's why it's important to be prepared and know what to do if you find yourself in a situation where you very well may need a Sarasota Car Accident Lawyer.

Let's talk about What To Do If You Get Into an Accident

The first thing you should do if you get into an auto accident is to assess the situation and make sure everyone involved is okay. Once you've done that, you'll want to move your car off to the side of the road so that it minimizes the chance of getting into any further accidents. Then, you'll want to exchange information with the other driver. This includes your name, contact information, insurance information, and license plate number.

It's also important to take pictures of the accident scene. This will be helpful later on when filing a claim with your insurance company or speaking with an attorney. If there are any witnesses, be sure to get their contact information as well.

After you've taken care of all of that, you'll want to call the police so they can file a report. Once the police arrive, they will speak with both parties involved and take statements. They will also take pictures of the accident scene and collect any evidence that may be needed later on.

Finally, once everything has been taken care of at the scene of the accident, you'll want to call your insurance company and let them know what happened. They will likely ask you for all of the same information that you gave to the police, so it's important to have it handy when you make that call.
