If you have been in a traffic collision in any community in Miami-Dade County, it’s important to keep in mind that you have rights. If you have been in a collision, the first thing to do is to remain calm and to evaluate the situation. Is the accident serious? Could there be a fuel leak? Is anyone seriously injured and in need of help? If the accident is serious, you’ll want to contact emergency services immediately and follow their instruction to try to avoid further injury. Avoid moving anyone unless instructed to do so, since you may cause further injury.

It is too early to tell what caused the accident and you don’t want to make a statement which can later affect your claim.
