What to do when you get into a car accident in West Palm Beach?
First and foremost, make sure you are safe and have received proper medical care and then Call Steinger, Iscoe and Greene for all of your auto accident needs.
Stay Put: Florida law requires you to stay put after an accident. Don’t leave. Make sure everyone is safe. It doesn’t matter if the accident involves a pedestrian, a moving car, a parked car or someone’s property. You must stop and stay at the scene to exchange information or render reasonable assistance to the injured. If you leave, you could be charged with hit-and-run and face severe criminal penalties such a suspended or revoked driver’s license.
Attend to your Injuries: Get medical treatment right away. Call 911 or see your doctor as soon as possible. Sometimes symptoms of serious injuries appear later. Having a record of receiving medical treatment will also be helpful if you need to make a legal claim later.
