What to do immediately after a car crash

In the event you become involved in a Florida car wreck, the decisions you make immediately afterward can impact you, either positively or negatively, for many months to come. One of your most important decisions should be to stay where you are until law enforcement officers arrive and give you permission to leave. If you leave too early without talking with them, you could face charges of leaving the scene of an accident or even hit-and-run, both of which are crimes in Florida.

The slightest distraction or lapse of attention while driving on the busy Florida highways can lead to tragic accidents in the blink of an eye.

The order followed the death of a patient, which led to the medical malpractice accusations. The surviving family members of the deceased patient might also choose to take action by filing a wrongful death lawsuit in civil court.
