Well, then by the law of the state, you have the right to get compensated. However, it is not as easy to get the compensation that you lawfully deserve from the 3rd party or their insurance company.

Understanding Your Rights and What to do after a Car Wreck

Your Legal Rights

Since car accidents are quite common in Dallas, it is important that you know your rights. You should also know what steps to take after a car crash.

Texas law puts no limits or caps on your pain and suffering. This means that you can get a substantial compensation if you seek legal assistance and file for a claim. Compensation is your right, and we’ll do whatever we can to help you get the amount that you deserve.

At Thompson Law, we understand your pain and know that no amount of cash can compensate for your health or the loss of a loved one in the car accident. However, by filing a claim against the party responsible for the accident, it can:

  • Help you pay for health care and treatments that you need to recover, and which can otherwise be quite costly
  • Compensate for lost earnings
  • Provide a sense of closure
  • Restore your sense of justice

Steps to take after a Car Accident

The actions you take after being in a car accident have an impact on the amount of compensation you are likely to receive. Therefore, to protect your rights to compensation for the damages and injuries, here’s what you should and should not do:

In case of an accident and when severely injured, it is advisable that you immediately seek medical assistance for your injuries and contact an experienced Dallas car accident lawyer, like us, to file a lawsuit against the party at fault.

However, if you’re physically capable of moving and standing after the crash then:

  • Try to collect contact information and ID’s of the owner, driver, passengers, and even witnesses.
  • Note down the plate numbers and collect insurance and registration information for all the vehicles involved in the accident.
  • Take photographs with your phone of the accident scene with all vehicles involved, street signs, and point of impact on all the cars for evidence purpose.
  • Immediately call the police and request them to come to the accident scene, and ask for an ambulance to take you to the hospital so that you can seek medical assistance.
  • Create a report for the responding officers with the necessary accident scene information. After a few days, the law enforcement agency will give you a copy of the car accident report that we had written.
  • Call 469-565-0075 for legal assistance and representation.

Please do not apologize for the accident as it can be wrongly construed as an admission of fault, even when you’re saying it in politeness. Also, never comment on how you feel physically or allow an insurance adjuster to record your statement. Further, do not comment on social media about your accident, as insurance companies can use it against you later. Remember, it’s the job of insurance adjusters to reduce insurance claims payouts. They have no interest in you getting you full and fair compensation. Thus, never sign any release, authorization, or anything for the insurance company of the party at fault.
