Top 3 Things to Know If You Are in a Motor Vehicle Accident:

1. Be covered

Before you get behind the wheel, make sure you are covered! Vehicles with a Florida registration are only required by Florida Law to have a minimum of $10,000 in Personal Injury Protection AND a minimum of $10,000 in property damage liability coverage.

2. Document

In the event you are in a motor vehicle accident, document everything. If you are able, move your car off the road and onto the shoulder, and dial 911 to report an accident.
