The first thing you should do in Florida after a car accident is take stock of yourself medically, which would be either call 911, maybe call your primary care physician. You also may have responsibilities to contact your insurance carrier when you’re medically able to do so. After that, I think it’s important that you contact an attorney. There could be time considerations with respect to when and where you seek medical treatment that could impact your ability to fully recover under yours or the at fault driver’s insurance policy.
