Auto Accident Checklist
There are a few things to remember to help ensure the best possible outcome for your case if you are seriously injured in a car wreck. Check out our car accident checklist below…
1. Never leave the scene of an accident—it’s illegal.
Never leave the scene of an accident you are involved in. This is a hit and run. It is illegal in Texas and could result in jail time.
2. Be sure to call the police and file a report.
Be sure to file a police report with the Tyler PD or the local police department in your city. If the accident is minor and the police do not need to be dispatched, you should still file an accident report. That way you do not get charged with a hit and run.
3. Seek medical attention.
Call 911 if needed. Do not dismiss your injuries. Many accident related injuries show up days or weeks after the incident. Get checked out by a medical professional as soon as possible whether you are in pain or not.
4. Stay safe, but protect the accident scene.
If possible and safe, do not move vehicles. This allows the police to determine what really happened. Oncoming traffic, fire, injury, debris, and weather all pose continuing risks. So move away from the vehicles if needed for safety, but if possible, keep your car where it is.
5. Do not apologize or admit fault.
While it may sound like a kind gesture, saying you’re sorry is the same as claiming legal liability. Even if you think the wreck is your fault, do not admit fault until a professional assesses the situation. Accidents happen very quickly. There may be factors which are not obvious.
6. Exchange information with other drivers.
Write down their name, phone number, and email address to ensure you are able to contact them if necessary.
7. Identify witnesses and get their names and phone numbers.
You never know when a car accident claim may go to court. If that happens, you’ll want witnesses.
8. Keep your receipts.
Keep all receipts, records, medical bills, and paperwork related to the accident in any way. This helps us request the maximum settlement for your case.
9. Take pictures of the accident scene for evidence.
See details below of the type of pictures that are important to capture after an accident.
What photos should I take to document an accident?
The camera on your smartphone works perfectly for documenting your accident. If you don’t have a smartphone, purchase an inexpensive disposable camera to keep in your car’s glove box.
Take pictures of:
- License Plates of any vehicle involved
- Damages to any vehicles involved
- Damages to your vehicle (dents, scratches, broken glass, etc.)
- Landmarks and street signs to identify the location of the accident
- Damage to any property or objects at the scene including debris, fallen trees, road signs, etc.
- Skid marks from all vehicles.
Be sure to take a picture of the corresponding vehicle.
Protect your identity: Do not let the other driver photograph your driver’s license. Likewise, do not request to photograph theirs. Instead, exchange contact information with pen and paper.
How Much does a car accident lawyer cost?
Our work is based on a contingency fee agreement. That means, we charge no out of pocket expense to our clients. We don’t get paid until you get paid.
How long does it take to get a settlement?
Most of the time, a car accident case can be resolved very quickly because the insurance company will usually settle outside of court. However, occasionally a complex case may require us to file a lawsuit and go to trial. When this happens, the case usually takes longer.
How long do I have to file a claim?
The Texas statute of limitations allows people to file a car accident claim up to two years after the event.
