What You Should Do After a Car Crash
Immediately following a collision, there are steps you should take, including:
01 Call 911
If you’re well enough to do so, call 911 at the scene of the accident. The police should be notified of the crash as soon as possible. This ensures an officer arrives to control traffic and reduce the risk of a secondary collision. It also ensures emergency medical personnel arrive quickly to care for you and anyone else with injuries.
02 Obtain Medical Care
If you’re injured, don’t refuse medical treatment after an accident. Let the paramedics look you over, and if they recommend going to the hospital, you should take their advice. If you do not go to the emergency room right away, see your physician as soon as possible for a thorough exam of your injuries.
03 Take Pictures
You should take photos and videos of the damaged vehicles and surrounding property. Try to take pictures from different angles and distances, but never put yourself in danger to do so. Also, take photos and video of any signs of the collision in the surrounding area, like skid marks on the pavement.
04 Exchange Information
Ask to see the other driver’s license and insurance card. You can write the information down or snap pictures of the card. Also, ask for any witness names and contact information. Do not argue with the other driver regarding fault. Do not blame them, and do not apologize if you are worried you may be partially at fault.
05 Notify Your Insurance
You should notify your auto insurance carrier of the crash. Proper and timely notification is important to obtaining benefits through your own policy.
Compensation We Fight For
Whether we pursue litigation or focus on obtaining you a fair settlement, our Dallas car accident lawyers will seek compensation for your:
- Medical Bills
- Lost Wages
- Physical Pain
- Mental Anguish
- Physical Limitations
- Loss of Earning Capacity
When clients come to us, we’ll start gathering evidence right away to build your case, which can be resolved: through an insurance settlement, where we negotiate with the insurance adjuster to pay you fairly, or through litigation.
If an insurance company isn’t cooperating during the settlement process, we move to file a lawsuit. Often the threat of a lawsuit is enough to show an insurance adjuster that we’re serious about fighting for our clients, and it pushes them to pay full and fair compensation.

The Texas Statute of Limitations
If you’ve been hurt in a car accident in Dallas, TX, you don’t have a lot of time to file a lawsuit. Every state creates time limits for how long an injured party has to file a case. For personal injury claims in Texas, the statute of limitations is two years.
Don’t Wait to File Your Claim
Two years may seem like a long time. However, two years from the date of the crash can pass quickly when you are hurt and go through months of recovery. You may try to recover compensation on your own, leading to unfair treatment from the at-fault driver’s insurance.
A Dallas auto accident lawyer wastes no time and immediately pursues full compensation for your injuries.

Dallas Car Accident FAQs
We understand that you undoubtedly have many questions that need to be answered. We’ll answer your most common questions below. Contact our office if you have a question not answered here.
What if the At-Fault Driver is Uninsured?
With the high volume of uninsured drivers on Texas roads, there is a good chance one can cause your accident. In this case, you could recover compensation through your uninsured motorist coverage policy. You may have this coverage without knowing it. However, if your damages exceed this coverage, you could file a personal injury lawsuit against the at-fault party.
What if I Cannot Work After My Accident?
When you suffer severe injuries after your accident, you will most likely be out of work for some time while you recover. This may be concerning since you depend on your paycheck to pay the bills. Your Dallas car accident lawyer fights to compensate you for any wages you lost during your recovery.
In more extreme cases, your accident may prevent you from potential earnings or career advancement. In these cases, your future wages and earning capacity are considered.
What Evidence Can I Document After My Accident?
If you are physically able, there are several things you can do to support your claim. In addition to photos and videos, you should also keep a post-accident journal. Documenting things like your recovery journey, doctor appointments, and other information regarding your accident can go a long way in supporting your claim.
What is Negligence?
Negligence is the failure to take proper care that results in injury or death. A driver that fails to yield to the right-of-way runs a red light or performs a similar action and causes an accident that results in your injuries is negligent. The at-fault driver’s actions will be compared to the actions expected of a reasonable driver. For example, expectations for a reasonable driver would be to stop at a red light.
Your attorney is tasked with proving the four elements of negligence, including:
- The at-fault driver had a duty of care like stopping at a stop sign
- The at-fault driver breached that duty of care through an action like running a stop sign
- The negligent act by the at-fault party caused the accident
- The at-fault driver’s actions resulted in damages that require monetary compensation
