Canan Law of St. Augustine can help if you’ve been involved in a car accident resulting in personal injury or property damage. The attorneys at Canan Law have more than 23 years’ experience representing clients involved in car accidents.

If you have been in a car accident, no matter how minor you think it is, you should always report the car accident to the police. Names, addresses and phone numbers of anyone involved in the car accident—as well as any witnesses to the car accident—should be documented by the police. Always obtain a copy of any car accident documentation for your records.

You should also call your insurance company as soon as possible after the car accident for further instructions. If you do not report the car accident, the insurance company may deny payment of claims.

Florida is a no-fault car accident state. That means your insurance company is required to pay for medical expenses sustained in a car accident, up to a certain amount, depending on the policy you purchased. Florida allows injured parties to bring claims against others even if they were partially at fault for the car accident, but it’s important that you follow procedures carefully after the car accident to ensure Canan Law can help you pursue the compensation that is due to you.

We’re here to help. If you have been involved in a car accident resulting in injury to you or your property, call the attorneys at Canan Law to discuss your options.
