What You Should Do After a Car Crash
Immediately following a collision, there are certain steps you should take, including:
01 Call 911
If you’re well enough to do so, call 911 at the scene of the accident. The police should be notified of the crash as soon as possible. This ensures an officer arrives to control traffic and reduce the risk of a secondary collision. It also ensures emergency medical personnel arrive quickly to care for you and anyone else with injuries.
02 Obtain Medical Care
If you’re injured, don’t refuse medical treatment after an accident. Let the paramedics look you over, and if they recommend going to the hospital, you should take their advice. If you do choose to not go to the emergency room right away, see your physician as soon as possible for a thorough exam of your injuries.
03 Take Pictures
You should take photos and videos of the damaged vehicles and surrounding property. Try to take pictures from different angles and distances, but never put yourself in danger to do so. Also take photos and video of any signs of the collision in the surrounding area, like skid marks on the pavement.
04 Exchange Information
Ask to see the other driver’s license and insurance card. You can write the information down or snap pictures of the card. Also, ask for any witness names and contact information. Do not argue with the other driver regarding fault. Do not blame them and do not apologize if you are worried you may be partially at fault.
05 Notify Your Insurance
You should notify your auto insurance carrier of the crash. Proper and timely notification is important to obtaining benefits through your own policy.
Types of Compensation We Fight For
Whether we pursue litigation or focus on obtaining you a fair settlement, our Dallas car accident lawyers will seek compensation for your:
- Medical Bills
- Lost Wages
- Physical Pain
- Mental Anguish
- Physical Limitations
- Loss of Earning Capacity
When clients come to us, we start by gathering evidence to begin building your case, which can be resolved in one of two ways: through an insurance settlement, where we negotiate with the insurance adjuster to pay you fairly for your injuries and damages, or through litigation. If an insurance company isn’t cooperating during the settlement process, we move to file a lawsuit. Often the threat of a lawsuit is enough to show an insurance adjuster that we’re serious about fighting for our clients and it pushes them to pay full and fair compensation.

The Texas Statute of Limitations
If you’ve been hurt in a car accident in Dallas, TX, you do not have as much time as you might think to file a lawsuit. Every state creates time limits for how long an injured party has to file a case. For personal injury claims in Texas, the statute of limitations is two years.
Two years may seem like a long time. However, two years from the date of the crash can pass quickly when you are hurt and go through months of recovery. You may try to recover appropriate compensation from the at-fault driver’s insurer first, only to hit a dead end, or to realize that you are being treated unfairly. More than a year may pass before you realize you need legal help.
To avoid running up against the clock, we recommend calling our Dallas auto accident lawyers as soon as possible. By partnering with a legal advocate right away, you have someone who will immediately take steps to build your case and pursue full and fair compensation for your injuries.
