Accident Tips for Our Central Florida Clients

So you just got into a car accident.  Stay calm, breath and everything will be ok if you take these steps.

  • Call 911 first, you always want a police report no matter what because we’ve seen far too many times where people say they will pay for something out of pocket only to change their mind once they see a dollar amount. The police report can save you thousands.
  • Call a family member or friend if you need additional assistance.
  • Try to avoid additional danger by pulling out of traffic if possible preferably in a well-lit area.
  • Turn the vehicle off and put your hazards on while waiting for help. If you feel you are hurt wait for help.  Help others if you know how to and are able to also.
  • If you’re mobile take plenty of pictures of the accident scene including any street signs visible.
  • Talk to witnesses and take names, phone numbers, and license plates if you can.
  • Have a body shop ready to have your vehicle towed to preferably Ace Paint and Body Works!
  • Collect any personal items from the vehicle before your vehicle is towed.
  • Talk to your insurance company and give them all the details of the accident.
