What to do after a automobile accident

Car accidents seem commonplace in today’s world of high traffic and constant road construction but you should not be complacent if you have been involved in a car accident especially if you sustained injuries.  You may have some underlying issues that do not manifest until later as well as significant repair costs to your car that the other insurance company may not cover. An experienced personal injury lawyer will help you along the way.  If you have been involved in a car accident follow these steps.

Your health should be your number one priority. If you have been hurt seek medical attention. If first responders suggest that you go to the emergency room, follow their advice. An emergency room doctor can help detect initial injuries and possible issues that may come later. Additionally, they may detect any disabilities that can be long term or permanent. They will document these injuries and help your personal injury attorney when you decide to pursue an injury claim.

If you or someone at the accident called 911, the local police will show up to perform the initial investigation.  They will ask a lot of questions, cooperate and answer honestly but make sure you do not make comments that indicate that you were at fault.  Answer the questions directly and do not elaborate.  Even the smallest statements can be used against you by the insurance companies to deflect fault from their clients.

If you or someone you know is able, take photos of the accident scene.  Include photos of the vehicles involved as well as the accident scene such as the intersection, road conditions and any possible contributing factors like construction or obstructions.

Once you leave the accident scene or have been treated at the hospital, contact the Molina Law Firm so that we can get the details of your case and let you know what to expect.  We offer free consultations and you never pay a fee unless we win your case.  Attorney Rick Molina knows Texas laws and he knows Houston.

Car Accident Statistics

We see car accidents nearly everyday.  This commonplace occurrence hides an important cause of serious injury and death on your roadways.  Over 600 people die and 2,000 people are seriously injured on Houston roads every year.  Houston ranks 2nd in fatal car accidents in the United States.  Statistically, the reason for these accidents are attributed to:

  • Longer and longer commutes due to the population moving to cities and towns outside of Houston.  The average commute time is over 29 minutes.
  • Higher speed limits coupled with increasing number of distracted drivers increases serious car accidents.
  • Road construction and changing traffic patterns have motorists guessing which way to go on confusing intersections and roadways.
  • Of the 956 fatal crashes in Harris and surrounding counties only 4.4% were inside the 610 Loop.  The rest were on freeways outside the Loop.

Frequently asked questions about car accidents

In most cases in car accidents the at fault driver and the insurance carrier is liable for all claims resulting from the accident.  Sometimes when the police determine that one vehicle was not completely at fault, then more than one person may be liable and pay for damages.  Your personal injury attorney can help you get the compensation you deserve after your car accident.

Do not automatically assume the accident was completely your fault.  Texas has “comparative fault” which may assign some degree of fault to the other driver or drivers.  If that is the case, then you may be entitled to some recovery.  Comparative fault is tricky and its best that you seek the advice of a personal injury attorney to assist you in this case.

Unfortunately, insurance companies have a conflict of interest in terms of who’s interest they have at heart.  Insurance carriers tend to look at their bottom line when it comes to payouts.  Insurance policies typically have maximums but insurance carriers will try to minimize their payouts.  As such if an insurance company offers you a settlement, then first seek the advice of a personal injury attorney.  When you accept a settlement check, you absolve them of any future liability.  You may not have considered other out of pocket expenses that you will not be able to be compensated for.
