Our attorneys have more than 20 years of combined experience providing car accident advice to individuals throughout Texas. If you or someone you know has been injured in a car accident. Let us provide you with the answers you need so you know how you should proceed.

What You Should Do at the Scene of a Car Accident

The best piece of advice we can give you if you are involved in a car accident is to seek medical treatment immediately. After you have exchanged basic information with the other driver and the police have been to the scene, accept any offered transportation to the emergency room. Explain any beginnings of pain to the doctor.

Getting medical care quickly and consistently avoids insurance disputes later on in the process, as insurance companies love to deny claims based on gaps in treatment or someone not getting immediate care.

The Steps You Should Take After Being Involved in a Car Accident

First and foremost, you should continue to receive medical care until your doctor tells you to stop. Do not allow any gaps in treatment to occur. You should then seek answers to any questions you may have. Our lawyers are able to look at and analyze your situation to answer the following questions:

  • Is my claim worth pursuing?
  • Is it necessary to get an attorney?
  • What does the process of pursuing a car accident claim look like?
