Avoid These Common Mistakes After A Car Accident:

  • Avoiding immediate medical care
  • Not contacting a lawyer right away
  • Forgetting to document the scene
  • Admitting fault
  • Failing to contact police
  • Not reporting to insurance companies
  • Recording statements before getting legal help

It is not unusual for victims of a car accident to suffer negative life changes from injuries sustained. Injured individuals often delay immediate medical care because they’re afraid of the high cost. Others simply don’t realize the extent of their injuries until they go home or days after the accident.

Often, injured individuals don’t immediately realize the extent or how severely they may have been injured and delay seeking medical care. Don’t make these mistakes. If you’ve been injured or think you may have been, get medical care immediately or call our skilled car accident lawyers to help you get the care you deserve.

Car wrecks and injuries caused by a negligent or distracted driver entitle you to reimbursement for all your losses, including medical expenses, lost wages, mental anguish, and pain and suffering.

I’ve already left the scene of the accident. Now, what should I do?

If you already left the scene of the car wreck or accident and realize that you have or may have been injured, seek medical care as soon as possible.

Insurance companies will often use any delay or “gap” in treatment to argue that you weren’t hurt or injured, in order to deny or minimize the extent of your injuries. If you realize you’ve been hurt or injured and are not sure what to do, contact an attorney as soon as possible.

Steps To Take With Car Insurance Companies

You need to report the auto accident to your insurance company and that of the other driver. If the accident was not your fault and you were hurt, tell them that. If it’s the other driver’s insurance company, simply report the accident to them.

They will want to take a recorded statement from you to get your side of the story. Say that you prefer to seek legal representation before providing them with a recorded statement. Once you do, you can be better prepared to answer any questions regarding fault and injuries. Simply report the accident, and contact a car accident lawyer to help you investigate fault of the other driver, get the right medical care, and negotiate a reasonable and fair settlement with the insurance company on your behalf.

Remember:

The insurance company for the other driver is not your friend and will deny or minimize your claim if they can.

For instance, if you didn’t seek immediate medical care, they will argue that you weren’t hurt or injured or that your injuries are not related to the car wreck or accident. They will also try to use anything you say to place fault or blame on you to either deny the claim outright or diminish the claim by saying it was partially your fault and thus reduce your claim by a percentage amount.

They will say, for example: “We think you took faulty evasive action even though our client turned in front of you, so you’re 20 percent at fault and we’re only paying you on 80 percent of your claim.”

At fault? There’s more you can do:

Remember, that even if you are found to be legally partially at fault, you can still recover for your injuries less whatever percentage you’re legally assigned. It’s critical and important, then, that you answer any questions regarding fault very carefully or avoid them if you’re not certain.

FAQs About Car Accident Claims in San Antonio, Texas

If you are like most people, you probably have lots of questions about your accident. Some of the most frequently asked questions we hear from car accident victims include:

What should I do after being injured in an accident?

After an accident, there are several important steps you need to take to protect your rights. But, two of the most important steps are: (i) to seek prompt medical attention, and (ii) to speak with an injury attorney as soon as possible.

Is it ok to talk to the insurance companies?

It is ok to report the accident to your own insurance company, but you should avoid giving any written or recorded statements about what happened. This is especially true with the adverse driver’s insurance company who is not on your side.

How much money can I expect to receive for my injuries?

Unfortunately, we cannot answer this question without knowing the specific details of your accident. Each case is unique; but, often, we are able to secure substantial settlements and verdicts for our clients’ injuries.

What if I was partially at fault in the accident?

First, never assume you were at fault, even partially, before speaking with a lawyer. But, even if you were partially at fault, you could still be entitled to financial compensation.
