Will Police Respond to My Car Accident in Tampa, FL?

Unlike some police departments in some cities, Tampa Police respond to all car accidents. If you were involved in a crash of any type, call 911 and an officer will be dispatched. Depending on your location, a Tampa Police Department (TPD) officer or a Hillsborough County Sheriff will respond.

Once police have been notified, seek medical attention, then call us to schedule a free consultation and case evaluation.

Will Tampa PD respond to fender benders?

Yes, police will respond to fender benders as well. If it is truly a non-emergency you may call the non-emergency line at 813-231-6130. If for some reason you did not notify police, be sure to get a report on file within 10 days of the crash occurring.

It is good that we have police in the area who will respond to accidents. A surprising number of serious injuries can arise after low speed impacts and having police document the crash at least establishes the fact that the accident occurred.

After the crash, you can go here to get a a copy of your Tampa Car Accident Report.

Police in other cities may not respond.

Believe it or not, police in many cities, even cities smaller than Tampa, may not respond to some types of collisions. For example, as of 2019, Springfield Missouri has a population of around 170,000 people and they no longer respond to non-injury collisions. Other cities which have adopted this policy include Las Vegas Metro area and Philadelphia.

Do I need an attorney after a Tampa car accident?

Always speak to an attorney after any crash which involves a serious injury. An attorney is not needed in each and every case. However, just like it is not a great idea to have people assess their own injuries, it is usually not a good idea to asses your own insurance claim. A good attorney will provide you with a free consultation and advise you on the best steps to take after any crash whether it involves retaining an attorney or not.

If you have been involved in an accident involving a serious injury or a loved one passed away during the collision, be sure to contact us for a free consultation. The RHINO Lawyers are dedicated to tackling the insurance companies head-on.
