Keeping Yourself Safe After a Car Accident in Houston

Posted by Jennifer Hodges Kahn | Jan 27, 2012 | 0 Comments

Knowing what to do after an auto accident in Texas can help save lives and your pocketbook. Most people really aren't sure what they should or shouldn't do after a car accident. It is important to know how to handle the active scene as well as the situation afterward when insurance claims are being settled. Consulting with Houston lawyers who are experienced in personal injury and car accident claims may help you work through these trying times. 

What to Do at the Scene of an Accident

There are some vital steps you should do at the scene immediately after a car accident to make sure everyone remains safe. These are: 
  • assessing injuries;
  • keeping injured people still and warm by covering them with a blanket, jacket, shirt, etc.;
  • calling law enforcement to report the severity of injuries; and
  • preserving the accident scene by turning on your hazards, setting up flares and moving your car off the road, if possible and necessary. 
What to Do After an Auto Accident

Once the accident scene has been stabilized, you're ready to move ahead to get your life back in order. Now it's time to start gathering information for your insurance claim.

Do You Need A Lawyer?

Insurance is meant to protect your health and property, but insurance companies often try to settle a claim as quickly and inexpensively as possible. Teaming with experienced Houston lawyers who have your interests in mind may help get you the protection you deserve.

Contacting a Houston Personal Injury Attorney

When you have experienced legal representation on your side, you can rest assured that your attorney will fight for all compensation to which you may be entitled, including past, current and future medical expenses; pain and suffering; lost earnings or earning potential; or wrongful death benefits.
