What to Do After a Car Accident in Tampa

Even knowing where the most dangerous intersection is, it’s hard to prevent an accident from happening. If you’re involved in a car accident in Tampa, it’s important to stay calm and pull over to the side of the road. If you can’t do that, pull off the road as soon as possible. You should then check on everyone involved in the accident and seek medical attention immediately.

It’s important to exchange information with the other drivers involved in the accident. This includes name, address, phone number, insurance company, and policy number. You can file a police report and a claim with your insurance company with this information. Finally, contact a Tampa auto accident lawyer at The Fran Haasch Law Group. We can help you recover compensation for your damages.
