If you were in a car accident in Riverview, Florida, you may be entitled to financial compensation from the responsible party.

You don’t have to handle your car accident case alone; we are here to manage it from start to finish while you recover.

What to Do After a Hillsborough County Car Accident
First and foremost, make sure you’re safe. If it’s a serious accident that left your vehicle damaged to the point where you can’t drive it, or if anyone involved is injured, then call the police and paramedics immediately.
After you’ve made sure you’re safe and able, doing the following may help your case:
- Record the time of the accident
- Exchange insurance information with the other drivers involved in the accident
- Take pictures of the damage and your injuries
- Take pictures of the surrounding area
- Take pictures of traffic lights and road signs
- Get eyewitnesses’ contact information
- Go to a doctor for assessment even if you don’t feel any pain
Documenting all these aspects of the accident could help us recreate the accident in court. Details like the time of the accident and the conditions of the road you were driving on could help us prove you were the victim in the accident.
Getting Medical Attention After Your Accident Is Crucial
Going to a doctor after an accident is obviously important for your health, but it could also help us prove your accident was the cause of your injuries.
An opposing legal team may argue that you already had the injury when the accident occurred or that you sustained it later. A diagnosis from a doctor immediately after the accident could help us pinpoint the cause and time it occurred.
