You should call 911 even if your accident seems minor. There are several reasons for this. Officers from the Sanford Police Department, state police, or another law enforcement agency can respond and make sure everyone is safe by securing the scene. They can get emergency medical help for any drivers, passengers, bicyclists, or pedestrians with serious injuries. Another thing they will do is document the accident by filling out a Florida Traffic Crash Report. This accident report will contain important information about the crash – the names of everyone involved; the make, model, and VIN numbers of the vehicles; and the officer’s account of what happened. The information can help strengthen your claim for financial compensation. That’s why you should get a copy of your accident report.
