Things to Consider When It Comes to Vehicle Accidents in Texas

When it comes to auto accidents, there are many things to consider. You might wonder what happens next, how much damage was done, who needs medical attention, and what insurance coverage applies. Here’s a quick overview of some of the people's most common questions about car accidents.

1. What Happens Next?

The first thing to know is that you don't need to call 911 immediately. If you're involved in an accident, you'll likely be asked to provide information such as your name, address, driver's license number, contact phone numbers, vehicle registration, etc. This helps police determine who owns the vehicle, where it was registered, and who is driving. Police officers will also check your record for previous traffic violations and criminal history. They'll also look up your insurance policy to see if you have liability coverage.

2. Who Needs Medical Attention?

If someone else is injured, you'll want to find out if they require immediate medical care. Ask them if they need to go to the hospital or if they just need to rest. If they say they need to go to a hospital, you'll need to decide if you want to wait for emergency responders to arrive or if you'd like to take them yourself.

3. How Much Damage Was Done?

You'll probably notice that your car looks different after an accident. Take photos of the damaged areas and note down the exact location of each dent, scratch, and dented area. Also, keep track of the amount of damage to your car. If you're unsure of exactly how much damage was caused, talk to your insurance agent. He or she will be able to tell you how much money you're entitled to receive based on the extent of the damages.

Client Reviews
Selecting an attorney can be one of the most difficult decisions a person has to make. In what seems like an overwhelming sea of attorneys who do you choose? Are they qualified, compassionate, and are they willing to fight for you without compromising their integrity? When faced with this decision in 2016 I received this and more when I retained Rahlita Thornton as my attorney. Since 2016 she has represented me on several court cases and I've never been disappointed. She is well versed and very knowledgeable on many aspects of the law. Attorney Thornton and her staff work diligently to ensure no stone is left unturned and justice is served. When I was crippled with fear, bullied, and felt like giving up she was my voice. She is highly recommend and I'm truly blessed to have her in my life. TTW
