Are My Rights to File Lost if I Did Not Report an Accident Immediately?

Report an Accident Immediately If you’ve been involved in an auto accident in Fort Lauderdale, it should be immediately reported to the police, even if injuries are not immediately apparent. A full police report can help the insurance companies determine who was at fault. It is also extremely important to consult with an attorney as soon as possible so you can be advised of your rights with regards to insurance.

While immediate medical attention is usually provided when injuries are apparent, sometimes the effects of these injuries manifest well after the initial reports were filed. But be aware that even if you did not report injuries when the accident happened, your right to file a claim has not been lost, as in Florida you generally have 4 years from the date of the accident to file a claim.
