What to do if you’re hit by a car:
- See A Doctor
No matter how you feel, get medical attention. You may think you weren’t really hurt, and you seem fine. Going to a doctor may seem unnecessary. But some injuries – such as head injuries and internal injuries – could have delayed symptoms. A health care professional can determine if you’ve been hurt and administer any needed treatment. Your injuries will also be documented.
- Get the Police
The police who respond will fill out a Florida traffic crash report that contains important information about the crash. This includes time, date, location, license plate number, contact information and whether there were any injuries. An officer will also note whether the driver was speeding, texting or engaging in other dangerous behavior.
