The majority of drivers are involved in an automobile accident at some point in their life. In fact, there are millions of traffic accidents reported to police every year. There were over 200,000 persons injured in Texas motor vehicle crashes in 2011, over 3,000 Texas traffic fatalities in 2011, and there was not a single day in Texas where a person did not die from a traffic accident. This means a reported crash occurred on Texas roads every 83 seconds and a person was injured every 2 minutes and 29 seconds.
To help prepare yourself for any accident that may occur, you need to put an “emergency kit” with pen, paper and first-aid supplies in your car. After a collision occurs, you need to remember some basic steps:
When death, injury or major property damage is involved, dealing with an insurance company without the assistance of an experienced attorney is risky.
An insurance adjuster may contact you and offer a quick settlement. Remember not to sign any document until you have consulted with your attorney. If you sign an agreement, you can forfeit your right to be compensated for damages and injuries that are discovered later.
