About Hillsborough County
Hillsborough County has about 403,000 residents living within its boundaries, making it the fourth most populous county in the state of Florida. It is located in the west-central region of Florida, opening into the Gulf of Mexico. Originally, Hillsborough County encompassed the area that is now Charlotte, DeSoto, Hardee, Highlands, Manatee, Pinellas, Polk, and Sarasota Counties, even though its population was only 836 persons at the time.
The motor vehicle accidents that occur in Hillsborough County are slowly decreasing over the last 10 years. Tampa is the city that accounts for most of the car accidents in the county, about 37% of them occurring within its city limits.
What to Do After an Accident
If you should happen to be in a motor vehicle accident in Hillsborough County, there are a number of different steps you should take. First, you should determine if there are any injuries that need immediate medical attention. If so, call the paramedics to attend to any medical issues. After the situation is stable, call the police so that they can oversee the rest of the process. When you are talking to the police, do not admit to any fault in the accident. This can greatly hurt your case later. Remember to get the names and contact information of every witness to the accident. Many times the police do not do this. If you can do so safely, take pictures of the involved cars with your cell phone.
Once the police report is filed, get the name, phone number, and address of the other drivers. You should also get information such as their car description, license plate number, insurance company, and insurance policy. These facts will be very important as you begin to pursue the claims process.
