This is important, even if you think the accident seems minor. Officers from the state police or the Tampa Police Department will respond. They will secure the accident scene to help keep everyone involved safe. They will assess whether anyone needs emergency medical treatment and get help as needed. Another thing they will do is fill out a Florida Traffic Crash Report. This is a routine part of their job. But for you, it can make a big difference. This report will contain valuable information about your crash that can help you recover financial compensation. That’s why you should get a copy of your accident report as soon as you can.
