5. Secure the Scene of the Accident The last thing you want is the scene of your accident to cause a second crash. Use your hazards, road flares, or road markers to warn oncoming drivers until the police arrive. 6. Never Admit Fault If you admit fault in an accident, anyone who heard that statement can testify against you in court. 7. Exchange Information After the police leave and both parties are ready to depart, make sure to swap insurance information. This will help your attorney track down the other driver should any further action be needed. 9. Never File a Lawsuit or Insurance Claim on Your Own An attorney is the single most important weapon in your arsenal. Let an experienced lawyer fight for you so that nothing stands in the way of justice. While it may be difficult to stay calm after a car accident, it’s imperative that you remember each of these tips. They could potentially make or break your car accident lawsuit or claim. 8. Never Take a Bad Settlement If the number looks low, it probably is.

A major car accident happens every two minutes and 17 seconds in the state of Texas. Houston, in particular, sees a substantial portion of these accidents due to inadequate public transportation and increasingly dangerous highway infrastructure. If you’re involved in a major accident, protect yourself by following these nine tips. 1. Seek Prompt Medical Care The most important step is to immediately get treatment. Medical records will play a major role in potential lawsuits, and your well-being matters more than anything else. 2. Always Call 911 You should always report an accident and file a police report. Some accidents may appear minor at the time, but latent injuries can create a substantial amount of trouble later on if a report is not filed. Documenting the events of an accident covers all your bases. 3. Never Leave Before the Police Arrive Texas penal law states that a hit and run is subject to criminal prosecution. Stay at the scene of an accident. 4. Document the Accident Yourself In addition to police documentation, you should do your own. Take pictures, find witnesses, and create a record, because if you end up in court, it could make all the difference.
