What Should You Do After a Car Accident in San Antonio?

If you’re involved in a car accident in San Antonio, take the following steps.

  1. If possible, check to see that everyone involved is okay.
  2. Call 911 to report the accident. This is important because EMTs will be dispatched along with the police to take a report. Get the report number for later.
  3. If possible, take pictures of the scene while you’re there along with damage to the vehicles involves and any injuries.
  4. Get medical care as soon as you can. Even if you don’t need the assistance of an EMT because of an obvious injury, getting medical care as soon as you can has the potential to ensure that existing injuries don’t become worse, including internal injuries. It’s also beneficial to your claim.
  5. Call The Aguirre Law Firm, PLLC, to schedule your free consultation. We’re here to help you protect your legal rights.

Should You Talk to a Texas Insurance Company Alone?

Texas law states requires that people who drive on our roadways need to have car insurance. When you file your insurance claim, the insurance adjustor will call you. They will also want to record the conversation. Although the goal of insurance is to protect you from a financial catastrophe, insurance companies are for-profit. To help ensure that they make a profit, their adjustors will often attempt to minimize your injuries and the property damage, leaving you to foot at least some of the bill (even if you’ve never made a claim before).

Because of this, it’s best that you don’t talk with an insurance adjustor on your own. They may trick you into saying something that makes it sound like you’re responsible for at least part of the accident. They’ll also try to get you to sign a settlement agreement to pay you less than what you need or what your claim is actually worth. A San Antonio car accident attorney can represent you during your conversation with the adjustor, answer any further questions the adjustor may have, and make sure that the insurance company provides you with a fair settlement. If they don’t, the job of your attorney is to take them to court.

With that said, San Antonio car accident victims may be entitled to financial compensation for their injuries, their property, and their suffering.
