What To Do After A Car Accident in Texas

1.   Call 911

Stop at the scene of the car accident, or as close as possible to the scene without obstructing traffic.

Determine if there are any injuries and call 911 immediately if needed. Those involved in the car wreck should exchange contact information including name and address, vehicle registration, and insurance.

Texas law requires (https://statutes.capitol.texas.gov/docs/TN/htm/TN.550.htm) those involved to exchange information at the scene of any accident including collision with an unattended vehicle or structure.

You are required to make an effort to find and notify the owner or otherwise leave your information in a noticeable place.

Take photos of the scene including any related personal injuries and damages to the vehicles involved. Get contact information of any available witnesses.

2.   File a police report

Regardless of severity, filing a police report is good practice in order to properly document an accident.

If submitting a report yourself, give as detailed information as possible. Note weather, traffic patterns, and driver behavior in your report. Consider retaining an attorney prior to submitting any paperwork.

If the report is completed by the investigating officer, be sure to review the report for accuracy before it is finalized by the officer.

3.   Don’t Admit Fault

Even in straightforward cases, there can be factors that lead to car accidents and obscure details that may put those involved at fault.

You should not offer statements to anyone other than an attending officer, especially without a San Antonio car crash attorney by your side.

Not admitting fault allows time to evaluate a car accident. Admitting fault can negate your insurance policy and allows opposing insurance companies to assert blame on you.

4.   Call a Car Crash Attorney

After you have left the car accident, call a car wreck attorney. With Alford & Clark, a free consultation ensures that we can get you the support you need.

  • Immediately contact the police and emergency medical services
