What should I do if I witness a car accident in Florida?
I would recommend you do the right thing, because so many people are witnessing accidents and just going about their day, not realizing the headache it’s creating for the poor person who’s a victim of a car accident that’s not their fault and trying to proceed with their claim when it’s a he said, she said. Sometimes, these at-fault drivers, they’ll make up anything to avoid responsibility for what they’ve done. Under Florida law, their insurance company is entitled to believe their insured, so, again, the only evidence of the accident is what the at-fault driver is telling their insurance company and what the injured party is saying happened. Without that third individual who is an independent witness, who doesn’t have a dog in the fight, coming forward to tip that scale, it can be a real nightmare for the injured party.
