The Ins and Outs of Your Texas Personal Injury Claim (Part A)
Accident Evidence for a Texas Personal Injury Claim
Your first instinct after an accident should be to gather evidence and proof. You'll need to record as much concrete data as you can in whatever way that you can. This means that the data or evidence may be written, photos, videos, or anything else you see fit for the situation.
Talk with all parties involved and get everyone's contact information (this also applies to eye witnesses at the scene). You should also get their insurance information because having all of this on hand may come in handy later when you file your Texas personal injury claim.
The police must also be notified after an accident so that there's formal documentation of its occurrence. The police will file a report with notes of how the cars were positions, what damages were suffered, etc.
If you or anyone else has suffered physical injury from the accident you must seek medical attention right away. This is also top priority because depending on the accident and the severity of the injury; time could make a huge difference.
After a police report has been filed and injuries are being treated you should contact a Travis County, Texas injury attorney.
