WHAT TO DO IF INVOLVED IN A HIGHWAY ACCIDENT
It is vital for motorists and passengers to avoiding further injury and remain safe after an accident on a highway. Perazzo Law highly recommends a set of safety measures and actions to avoid further harm and help injured parties receive prompt medical attention. First and foremost, occupants involved in the accident must immediately notify the authorities so that medical rescue units can respond quickly to assist injured parties. Once the authorities have been informed of the highway accident, Perazzo Law suggests moving the vehicle off the road and onto the shoulder if possible. Many times a vehicle that has crashed at high speed is unmovable. If that is the case, passengers should get out of the vehicle and get off the highway. If the vehicle is movable, it should be moved over to the shoulder. Once the car is on the shoulder and the authorities have been notified, occupants should not hesitate to get off the highway. Once safe, the vehicle operator, together with any passengers, should wait for the authorities. Once the authorities have arrived, any injured parties should be tended to immediately and taken to hospital if needed. The vehicle owner must proceed to exchange vehicle registration and insurance policy information. No statements should be made according to how the accident happened as highway accidents need to be investigated in detail by accident and insurance inspectors. That is why, photographs and eyewitness testimony is vital for determining fault in a highway accident. Perazzo Law attorneys know that most vehicle operators that are evidently at fault will most probably deny negligence on their behalf. Thus, recording the accident scene is vital for any future insurance claims for compensation. Perazzo Law recommends that accident victims that have suffered personal injury keep all medical reports and records of any treatment administered on behalf of healthcare practitioners, either public or private. Furthermore, personal injury accident victims must keep any receipts depicting medical expenses incurred from the highway accident. Perazzo Law advises highway accident victims to contact our Miami or North Miami Beach law offices to discuss a possible insurance claim for compensation from personal injury, property damage or losses that result from the accident.
