Car accidents can have devastating and life-changing effects...

Common Car Accident Injuries

Negligence on the part of car manufacturers, or drivers can result in serious injury or even death. Our Longview clients often turn to us for help after sustaining a wide range of injuries including...

  • Whiplash
  • Neck strains
  • Sprains
  • Fractures
  • Disc damage or injury
  • Traumatic brain injury
  • Spinal cord injury

Injuries Are Not Always Physical

In addition to the physical effects, auto accidents can produce serious psychological or emotional trauma, such as anxiety, mood swings, sleep disturbances, depression, or phobias. Many victims of car accidents experience post-traumatic effects for a year or more, which can disrupt their lives as much if not more than the physical repercussions. While pain and suffering are not often factored into settlements from insurance companies, our compassionate car accident attorneys understand that your mental health is an important aspect of your damages. We will work to get you compensation for medical bills for all aspects of your recovery

What to Do after an Auto Accident

After a car or truck accident, you may be at a loss for what to do. To protect yourself and the future of your car accident claim, try to follow the following steps...

Police Cooperation

Make sure to contact the police and cooperate to the best of your ability. It is important that the authorities file an official report on the accident and gather initial evidence. Keep any information from the other driver in a safe spot; you will need it in the future.

Medical Attention

Even if you are unsure about the severity of your injuries, you should still get checked by a medical professional. Beyond just the initial emergency room visit, making follow-up appointments for medical care can be extremely beneficial from both a health and a legal standpoint. You could have delayed side effects from the crash which need to be documented in your car accident claim. 

No Apologies

It is not uncommon for insurance company representatives or lawyers on behalf of the other driver to contact you for information. While anything you say has the potential to be used against you in your case, it is especially important to avoid apologizing. This kind of statement, even in passing or out of politeness may be used later as an admission of guilt. It is in your best interests to not respond and let a car accident lawyer handle all communications.

Maintaining Documentation

Keep track of all treatments, medical bills, and evidence of property damage since this information is crucial for calculating your damages. After a car accident, there is no guarantee that your insurance company will offer you a fair settlement and you need documents to prove your losses which will likely add up over time. 

Contacting a Car Accident Lawyer

Before signing any kind of settlement from your insurance, you should have the documents reviewed by a qualified car accident lawyer to ensure you are being compensated fairly. In fact, you should consider speaking with a personal injury lawyer far sooner in the process. The earlier our car accident lawyers are working on your case, the better your chances of achieving the best positive outcome.

It's never too soon for a free case evaluation. Contact our Longview firm today to protect yourself and get the support you need during this stressful time.
