What should I do after being injured in an Orlando car accident?

If you are injured in a car accident, the very first thing you should do is call the police. From here, you should ask the other driver for his or her insurance information, though keep conversation to a minimum and never apologize, under any circumstances. Next, you should ask anyone who saw your accident for their name and phone number, and take pictures of any property/vehicles that were damaged in the accident. Once you are treated at the hospital, ask your doctor for medical documentation relating to your injuries, and, finally, retain the services of an experienced Orlando personal injury attorney who can work to subpoena any additional evidence, such as surveillance footage, phone records of the texting motorist, and more to prove your claim.
