What should I do after an auto accident? Your immediate course of action following an auto accident should be to ensure your health and wellness. See a physician as soon as possible after the accident. Dr. Huffman is available 24/7 through a simple text link anywhere in the state of Florida. Call him immediately after your injuries. Injuries such as whiplash and herniated discs may be present but not instantly felt, especially as your body is experiencing a rush of adrenaline following the accident. After an auto accident, refrain from giving a statement to the insurance company of the at-fault individual. They could use your words against you.
