VIDEO TRANSCRIPT: I’m often asked what you should do after a car accident. The police are going to show up at the scene, and it seems obvious, but you need to tell them what happened. Very often people don't communicate with the police officer, and it’s not reflected in the police report. Secondly, if you’re injured also tell the officer that. They include that in the report as well. Next, you need to seek medical attention. Many times people say I wasn’t sure if I was hurt. A lot of times it takes a day or two for people to experience pain after an auto accident. Go get checked out. Go to the emergency room or urgent care. In Florida, there’s a law that says if you do not seek medical attention in 14 days, your no-fault benefits are dramatically reduced. It’s important when all this is going on after the accident that you take care of details. Come and meet with us. At The Kelleher Firm, the consultation is free.
