Free Consultation

When you’re hurt in a vehicle accident, it can be a disorienting experience. You’re hurt, and now, you’re struggling to recover from the process. Now, you may be concerned about the process for your recovery. You might even feel overwhelmed by the steps you need to take for your claim. 

If your accident has left you overwhelmed, your lawyer from Crain Brogdon, LLP. can help. We can walk you through your Texas vehicle accident claim process, so you know what to expect following your car crash. 

Your Accident Report

Once your accident happens, you might be worried about the time you have to file an accident report. You’re injured and seeking medical care, but what about the police and your legal steps after an accident? 

Typically, you’ll be required to file an accident report in Texas if the damage was worth more than $1,000, or if someone was injured. In these cases, the police may file an accident report, so you may need to ensure this happened before you leave the scene of the accident, if possible. 

Talking to the Insurance Company 

You’ll also need to inform the insurance company as soon as possible after the crash. They may be your first option to settle your claim after an accident, and they’ll need to be notified of the accident for your records even if you don’t end up receiving a settlement from them. 

However, keep in mind that what you say can be used against you. If you take any blame for the accident, for example, they may use that to reduce the value of your claim. These companies are for-profit businesses, which means they may use unfair tactics to avoid paying your compensation. Fortunately, your Texas lawyer can calculate your claim’s worth before you accept a settlement. 

When to File a Lawsuit

If you’ve suffered major injuries after an accident, but the insurance company isn’t willing to help, you may need to file a claim against the responsible driver. You and your attorney can review the evidence against them and build your claim from there. 

Unfortunately, that doesn’t make it easy to get your compensation. You’re already injured, and now, the responsible party may be trying to shift the blame onto you. If this is the case, your attorney will need to focus on showing how the other party was at fault, before your compensation is reduced or dismissed completely.
