What should I do after an automobile accident?

We recommend that you DO NOT give a statement to the other driver’s insurance company without first consulting with automobile accident lawyers in Houston. The insurance company is not on your side. They are looking to minimize their expense and will have attorneys advising them.

You should have an attorney advising you as well. Don’t think that just because you have insurance that you do not need an attorney. You need to work with an attorney to be sure that the negligence that caused your accident is fully investigated. Many times these carriers will attempt to delay, deny payment or under pay valid claims. We will evaluate your case for you for free.

We recommend that you follow these steps:

  • Contact the Police: Report the accident. You may have to go to the police station to file a report if an officer did not come to or provide you one at the scene of the accident. We can help get a copy of the police report. Keep in mind that it may take 7-10 days to get some reports.
  • Preserve evidence: Get contact information (Name, address, driver’s license number, license plate number) for all the parties involved, including all witnesses. Draw a diagram of the accident.
  • Go to the hospital or to your doctor.
  • Contact trusted car accident lawyers in Houston: We are experienced have extensive knowledge of the law regarding Houston traffic accidents, and we want to help you.
