Frequently Asked Questions

After a car accident, most people experience some degree of shock. However, there are certain steps that should be taken to help ensure a strong case. If possible, do the following:

  • Call the police.
  • Take photos of the accident scene.
  • Talk to any witnesses and get their contact information.
  • Get insurance information from the other driver.
  • Most importantly, see a doctor. This is important even if you believe your injuries are minor – or even if you think you have no injuries at all.

Taking photos of the accident scene – whether you were involved in a car accident, premises liability accident or other type of accident – can prove to be very beneficial as you go through the legal process. Accident scene photos can be used as evidence in the investigation of your case. Take photos with your phone or keep a disposable camera in your glove compartment.

If you have been injured in an accident caused by someone else’s negligence or recklessness, you may be entitled to compensation for your injuries and suffering. It is important to speak to a personal injury attorney in Houston about your legal options, preferably before you speak to your insurance company.Remember: Your insurance company may offer you much less than your case is worth. A Houston personal injury attorney can help you seek maximum compensation for all damages and expenses associated with your accident.

If you've been involved in a car accident with a commercial truck, it's crucial to take specific steps to protect your rights and strengthen your case. Given the potential complexity of truck accidents, these steps are particularly important:

  1. Call the Police: It's essential to report the accident immediately. Police will document the scene and provide an official accident report, which can be vital for your case.
  2. Take Photos of the Accident Scene: Capture images from various angles, showing the damage to your vehicle, the truck, and any relevant road conditions or signage. These photos can provide critical evidence.
  3. Talk to Witnesses: If any bystanders saw the accident, speak with them and get their contact information. Witness accounts can be incredibly valuable in piecing together how the accident occurred.
  4. Exchange Information: Get the insurance details from the truck driver. In addition to personal insurance information, ensure you get any details related to their employer or trucking company.
  5. Seek Medical Attention: Even if your injuries seem minor or non-existent at the scene, it's crucial to see a doctor. Injuries from such accidents can sometimes become apparent only after some time. A medical record immediately following the accident is a powerful piece of evidence in personal injury claims.
  6. Document Your Experience: Keep a record of any medical treatments, symptoms, and how the accident affects your daily life. This documentation can be useful when seeking compensation for damages.
  7. Consult Our Truck Accident Lawyer in Houston: Consider consulting a Houston truck accident attorney experienced in car and truck accidents. They can provide guidance on how to proceed and can help you navigate claims involving commercial vehicles.

A personal injury refers to physical or psychological harm suffered by an individual due to someone else's negligence or intentional actions. This can include injuries from car accidents, truck accidents, workplace incidents, explosions, and more.
