3 Key Steps to Take After a Car Accident

In the aftermath of a car collision in Beaumont, Texas, you may feel flustered, be in pain and feel disoriented. Depending on the severity of the accident, there are certain actions we recommend that you take to help make the claims process as smooth as possible in the coming weeks and months. At Brasher Law Firm, PLLC we realize that sometimes the injuries sustained may be too traumatic to perform some of the following steps, but we provide these to you as a general guideline:

  1. Always call 911 right away. Having a medical professional on the scene as soon as possible can be essential not only for health reasons, but also in discerning the severity of any injuries sustained. This could help later on down the road with proving fault and obtaining compensation from the guilty parties.
  2. Make sure law enforcement is on the scene. Second to calling for medical help, phone the police as soon as possible after your accident. They will come and write up a detailed police report and be able to investigate for any suspicious activity, including checking for signs of drunk driving on the part of the other driver. While liability is often tough to determine in car accident cases, a thorough police report could make all the difference in the amount of compensation you receive.
  3. Retain a Texas car accident attorney. Even with a seemingly simple auto accident case, having a personal injury lawyer by your side throughout every step can help you to relax, knowing that your rights are being protected. You do not want to end up with a claim amount that is way less than what you truly deserve.
