Florida law requires drivers to report any car accident with personal injury or property damage of $500 or more. But it's always a good idea to report even minor car accidents.

Protect yourself legally:

Even if you didn't cause the accident, a police report can help protect you from being liable for any damage to the other person's car.

Protect yourself medically:

Even in a fender bender, it can take hours or days for the trauma to show up on your body. In low-speed car accidents, many victims sustain "soft tissue injuries" which are often not felt right away.

So we strongly advise you to:

  • Call 911 to report accidents and get the police report.
  • Inform your insurance company.
  • Get checked by a Doctor.

Whether you were in a major or minor car accident, it's always important to get checked by a doctor. That's why at The Right Spinal Clinic we offer doctor’s checkups for all car accident victims in the Tampa Bay area!
