Get Help ASAP
“Do I really need a car wreck lawyer?”
Yes. So many people try to fight the big insurance company alone and usually end up regretting that decision.
“Even if it was just a minor car wreck or fender bender?”
Yes. You do not know the extent of the damage – both to your property and your body. Do not say you are fine until you know for sure.
What should I do after a car accident?
-1- Think About Safety.
Stay calm and call the police. No matter what the other person says or asks.
Clear yourself from the accident. Get out of the roadway—especially busy Texas highways.
Listen to the 911 operator and police—they are there to help.
-2- Seek Medical Help.
Seek medical attention immediately. Ask for an ambulance to check you out.
At the minimum, get an ice pack for the potential bruising that is likely to follow.
Even if you do not feel like you were injured, be aware that sometimes injuries will not appear until hours or days after an accident. Learn more. In fact, most people are in such shock that they immediately say they are fine and that they are not hurt. Do not do this; you do not know if you are hurt. You need to get cleared by a medical professional.
Common injuries that happen in auto accidents include whiplash, concussions, broken bones, contusions, and abrasions. Learn more.
-3- Collect Information.
Usually, police will obtain this information for you. Be sure the police get the other person’s insurance information correctly.
If possible, take notes of the car position, weather, road conditions, time, place, and traffic violations.
Take pictures of the accident and any visible injuries.
Contact a personal injury lawyer immediately. The first few hours are crucial to your case.
