What Should You Do After Sustaining Injuries in a Pembroke Pines Car Accident?
If you have been involved in a car accident, it is important to remain calm and call 911 for help immediately. The emergency responders will both send medical help if necessary and a police officer who will create a formal record of the accident. You should also:
- Check to see if anyone who was injured requires immediate medical assistance,
- Take photos and videos of the accident scene, including the vehicles themselves, license plates and surroundings,
- Speak with any witnesses to the accident and get their names and contact information, as well as the name, insurance information and contact information of the other driver,
- Make sure you notify your insurance company of the accident,
- Call our experienced car accident and injury lawyers as soon as possible.
Although you may be hesitant to involve the police in your accident, Florida law requires that you have a formal police report if the damages are worth more than $500. This accident report is necessary to protect your right to later get fair compensation from the at-fault driver.
Additionally, immediate medical attention is also crucial to protect your right to recover compensation under personal injury protection (PIP) coverage in Florida. Even if you don’t have health insurance, seek medical attention now and we can help you recover the funds to pay for your care once your health is protected.

About Pembroke Pines, Florida
Pembroke Pines is located in South Florida, about 25 miles north of Miami. Although the population of Pembroke Pines was only about 170,712 as of the 2017 census, it is considered to be part of the larger Miami metropolitan area, which is home to more than 6 million residents. Pembroke Pines was originally incorporated in 1960.
Historically, it was a part of a two-million acre parcel of land across South Florida purchased by Sir Edward J. Reed in the 1800s. Pembroke Pines was named for a road—Pembroke Road—constructed across the area, as well as for the pine trees growing on the side of that road.
Frequently Asked Questions About Car Accident Claims in Pembroke Pines, FL
FAQ: Do I have to go to court to get compensation if I was injured in a Pembroke Pines car accident?
Most of our car accident cases settle out of court. We work to build the strongest possible claim for your right to compensation. Then we negotiate with the insurance company to get what’s fair for you. In particularly complex cases where the insurance company refuses to settle fairly, we are fully prepared to litigate your case through trial to protect your rights.
FAQ: I’m worried about the cost of hiring a lawyer to get compensation for my car accident injuries. How much will it cost?
This is a common concern among car accident victims. We work on a contingency basis. That means you don’t have to pay our attorneys’ fees up front. If and when we win compensation in your case, the attorneys’ fees are paid as a percentage out of that compensation award. We also advance all of the costs needed to investigate and build your case, so you don’t have to worry about those expenses either.
