Steps to Take After a Texas Truck Accident (Part B)

During a Texas truck accident, our bodies and our brains go into emergency mode, pumping adrenaline into our system. After any car accident, a doctor in Austin should be your first call. Your second should be to speak with an attorney on our team of Texas personal injury lawyers who can help you mire through this difficult time.

You may be in pain, panicked, or confused. You are probably worried about your car, the other driver, passengers, or your own physical well-being.

After Leaving the Scene of Your Texas Truck Accident

After you have left the scene of the accident, it's important that you keep accurate records of everything involving the accident, including: 
 
  • your medical records;
  • bills;
  • receipts; and
  • estimates for your car repairs.  
You do not have to call your insurance company from the scene of crash - it's better for you to focus on your health and your recovery and call them after you have had a chance to balance your nerves and speak with an attorney.

Trucking companies are notoriously aggressive in their attempts to thwart potential cases, so documentation and legal representation are all the more important in these cases. Because truck accidents are some of the most dangerous car accidents in Texas, the damages involved can be significant, and an attorney has the experience to help you determine what your actual financial needs are and the best strategy for getting the insurance company to agree.

Keep in mind that sometimes even your own insurance company will deny your claims, and your attorney can speak to them on your behalf.

When you've been in an accident, you need someone you can trust. After a car accident, a doctor in Austin will help you get back on your feet, and an attorney will:  
  • protect your rights to fair compensation;
  • answer your questions; and
  • explain your legal options to you.
