When you are a driver, you should have a comprehensive understanding of the laws of your state when it comes to being on the roadway. If you are involved in a crash, it’s very useful to understand the laws regarding being in a crash. Florida law requires all drivers to stop at the scene of an accident and help anyone who is injured, and if the accident causes injuries or damage in excess of over $500, that must be reported to local law enforcement. If damages below that and there are no injuries, the accident does not need to be reported to law enforcement. If injuries occurred, then you are required to stay at the scene of the accident, you must exchange information such as name, address, vehicle registration and more with all parties.
While it is not required by law, you should also write on the names and contact information for any witnesses who saw the accident. You should also write down other important details such as weather conditions and roadway conditions.
You should take photos of damage to all vehicles involved so that you can submit them with the accident report to your insurance company, and the report should simply state facts without admitting fault on your behalf or placing blame on the other driver.
If your car blocks traffic and you must move it or arrange for a tow service to do so. It is a violation of Florida law to block the roadway with your vehicle. All Florida drivers are required to purchase car insurance and have proof of insurance in their vehicle, and the minimum insurance that drivers must have is at least 10,000 for personal injury protection or PIP and 10,000 for property damage liability PDL. PIP covers non-property related costs such as personal injury and lost wages, and Florida is a no-fault state, which means that each person’s insurance company pays for their own accident expenses no matter who was at fault.
This means if an accident causes someone more damage or injuries in your insurance policy covers and you might have to sue for additional damages by filing a personal injury lawsuit.
