Do I need to call the police if I have a car accident in Florida?

Video Transcription:

If you’re able to do so, absolutely, but before the police arrive it’s imperative that you also document as much as you can. Take photos of the vehicle, if you can get the license plate, take a picture of that. Take a picture of the driver. Sometimes in between the time that the accident and those police arriving that driver might decide to leave. You want to document as much as you can if you’re able to do so before the police arrive. Take a picture of the VIN number, sometimes I’ve seen police reports that have the name and insurance company and insurance policy number but that’s not related to the person that was actually at the scene that was driving the vehicle. Get a picture of that VIN number, get a picture of the driver’s license, and document all property damage as much as you can.
