I Was In An Accident, What Do I Do Next?
We know how overwhelming and stressful the moments after a car accident are. You may be injured or in shock and may not know what to do next. The first thing you should do is gather evidence that will help prove your case. This evidence should include photos of the accident site, location and vehicles, medical bills, and other expenses related to the accident.
The next step is to seek medical attention, even if you feel fine at the moment. Sometimes, an injury in an automobile accident is not immediately apparent, or adrenaline masks your pain. Seeing a doctor immediately is a great precautionary measure that can help your case. All possible injuries and treatments will be documented when you visit a doctor. Without proof of your injuries, an insurance company may argue that the injuries happened before the accident. The longer you take to see a doctor, the harder it will be to prove a link between your injuries and the auto accident.
What Compensation Can I Get For My Injuries?
In Texas, you can recover for various damages in a car accident lawsuit. Compensatory damages are meant to compensate you for your losses and include economic and noneconomic damages.
Economic damages you may recover in Texas include:
- Medical expenses
- Property damage
- Lost wages
- Lost future income potential
Noneconomic damages cover intangible losses you and your family experience because of your car accident. These include compensation for pain, suffering and mental anguish and compensation for loss of companionship your family may experience. You may also recover punitive damages designed to punish the at-fault party for grossly negligent actions, including distracted and reckless driving.
We can help you determine which damages to pursue based on your situation. Your best interests are the center of your case, and we take each case personally and provide tenacious representation to meet the end goal.
