What Should I Do After A Houston Car Wreck?

Safety first

Nobody plans to be involved in an automobile accident in Houston. But a crash caused by a motorist driving irresponsibly can happen at any moment. Whether you were rear-ended on Greens Rd. and John F. Kennedy Blvd., or broad-sided at the intersection of Bissonnet St. and Sam Houston Parkway, there are some procedures you should always follow.

For safety reasons, you should always secure the accident scene. If possible, make sure all vehicles are moved out of traffic and hazard lights are turned on – although if it is safe to do so, you should take a moment to take pictures of the scene before moving your car. Always check for injuries, and if you have any reason to believe anyone could be hurt, call for an ambulance.

Gathering details after a crash

After an accident, you should always call the police. No matter how minor an auto accident may seem, a police report can help determine how the crash occurred and who was at fault. While waiting for the police to arrive, exchange information with the other motorist. This includes:

  • Names of all drivers and passengers involved
  • Vehicle descriptions (make, model, year)
  • Driver’s license numbers
  • License plate numbers
  • Insurance information

In addition, take photos of the accident scene, and obtain names and contact information of nearby witnesses. An experienced Houston auto accident lawyer can use the details gathered from the accident scene to build a strong, legal case and ensure that you are compensated to the fullest extent.

Let Tracey & Fox handle the insurance companies

After an automobile accident, you must promptly notify your insurance company. But be careful not to give them any more than the minimum details. Anything you say can later be used to deny or downplay your claim. Insurance companies – including your own – are more interested in reducing their own costs than helping you fully recover. Let a highly skilled auto accident lawyer at Tracey & Fox handle the case.

If you have been injured in an auto accident in Houston due to another driver’s negligence, you deserve justice. At Tracey & Fox, we’ll negotiate with the insurance companies, and if they are reluctant to pay, we’ll take them to trial. Contact us for a free case evaluation or call our Houston office at (713) 955-7854. We will help you recover.
