Auto accidents are frightening because they can happen to anyone. Even if you're a conscientious driver, there's always a chance that a negligent or reckless driver could slam into you, causing terrible injuries. If you suffer injuries as a result of another person's negligence, you shouldn't have to shoulder the financial burden of medical bills, missed work, and other damages. The Law Offices of Steven J. Glaros and Associates can investigate the accident and help you obtain the compensation you deserve. Our Tamp Bay auto accident attorneys have been representing injured drivers for more than 30 years.

Common Auto Accident Injuries

Every part of the body is vulnerable during a car crash. However, some injuries tend to occur more often than others.

  • Whiplash: Whiplash occurs when the head is pitched forward and backward in quick succession, often as a result of a car crash. Whiplash symptoms may not arise until a few days after an auto accident, which is why it's important to visit a doctor soon after any collision.
  • Bone Fracture: Limbs are especially vulnerable to fractures, and usually take weeks or months to heal. If you suffer a fracture after a car accident, you may be stuck with some serious medical bills.
  • Head Injury: Head injuries are worrisome because they can potentially cause permanent damage. If you suffer a head injury during an auto accident, filing a personal injury claim against the negligent driver can help you cover the ongoing expenses associated with your injury.

What to Do After an Auto Accident

If a reckless driver causes you to get into an accident, it's important that you thoroughly document the scene. Here's a brief look at what to do after a collision.

  • Seek Medical Attention: First, you must make sure that everyone involved in the crash is OK. If anyone appears seriously injured, call an ambulance right away.
  • Collect Driver Information: Next, you should take down the other driver's name, address, phone number, license number, and insurance information. This will be important when it comes time to settle with the other driver's insurance company.
  • Take Pictures: Take pictures of the scene and write down a summary of events. If there are witnesses, take down their names and contact information.
