First of all, it is crucial to call 911 and ensure that the area is safe before exiting your vehicle. Far too often, people exit their vehicle after an accident and are hit by another driver. When help arrives, insist that the Laredo or Texas State police file a report for the car accident.
Document, in as much detail as possible, information about the car, truck, or motorcycle accident and your injuries. A Laredo car accident attorney will need information about every detail of the accident. Take note of all injuries and other losses such as wages from missed work. Also, document any discussions you had with anyone involved in the accident and any ask witnesses for their contact information.
Aside from your doctor or personal injury attorney, do not speak to anyone about the car accident, especially not the insurance claims adjuster. Laredo car accident lawyer Ronald A. Ramos will be happy to assist you every step of the way.
If you have a camera, take pictures of the auto accident scene and document any visible injuries as well.
Seek immediate medical attention. Often times, car accident victims do not immediately realize how severely they have been injured due to adrenaline and shock. The full extent of the injuries may not even be realized until hours or days later. Be sure to tell your doctor how your injuries occurred. Tell him or her about any pain, dizziness, confusion, or any other injuries you may have sustained.
At this point you may be wondering how you will pay for car repairs, medical bills, and make up for any lost wages. Often times, the insurance adjuster will try to contact accident victims and offer a settlement, but these offer amounts typically only cover a small fraction of the bills. It is important to contact an attorney before speaking to anyone else about your injury.
