Serving Those Injured in Crashes in Texas & Nationwide

Car Accidents  in TexasVehicles are dangerous. Every time we are on the road, we have to trust that other drivers will obey the traffic laws and avoid distractions. Unfortunately, with the kinds of distractions we have today, people are less likely to pay attention to the road.

The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration estimates that more than 25 percent of police-reported traffic accidents are caused by distracted drivers, including drivers on cell phones. If you were injured or your loved one was killed by a distracted or otherwise negligent driver in a Texas traffic accident, contact Cole, Cole, Easley & Sciba, P.C. for a free initial consultation with a Victoria car accident attorney.

Car Accident FAQ

What should I do If I am involved in an auto accident?

If you have been in a car crash, you may be feeling panicked or disoriented. You may even be in serious pain, although the adrenaline rush can mask the pain of injuries in the aftermath of a wreck.

Here is what you need to remember to do after an accident in case you ever find yourself in this situation:

  • Call 911 if anyone has been seriously injured
  • Take as many pictures of the crash scene as possible
  • File an accident report with the police
  • Exchange contact and insurance information with the other drivers
  • Ask witnesses for their contact information

Once you leave the scene of the accident, take care of the following as soon as possible:

  • Contact your insurance company and inform them you have been in a crash—however, do not sign anything yet or agree to a settlement offer. If the at fault driver’s insurance company calls you and tries to get a statement, refuse.
  • Go to a doctor for a diagnosis so you can determine the extent of your injuries and whether you need to file a car accident claim.
  • Reach out to an attorney to learn about your legal rights and options during a free case evaluation.

What kind of compensation can I get?

You should be eligible to receive compensation for all accident-related expenses deemed necessary to your case and recovery. This may include, but is not limited to, medical expenses, lost wages, pain and suffering, property damage repair and replacement, attorney fees, and other out of pocket expenses. Keep all receipts and bills you receive to ensure you get adequately compensated.

Do I even need a lawyer?

While you don’t have to work with a lawyer when filing a car accident claim, hiring a legal advocate with extensive experience in the field of personal injury can greatly bolster your chances of your claim running smoothly—and you walking away with the maximum compensation you are owed. Experienced car accident attorneys know how to calculate damages, collect evidence, handle insurance companies, seek out expert testimony, and push for your right to compensation—even when the opposing parties push back. An attorney can represent you in court should the liable party refuse to settle. A lawyer can also handle the time-consuming legal aspects of your claim while you focus on recovery and other important things in your life. The choice is ultimately up to you.
