In the blink of an eye, a car accident can change everything. You can find yourself with a heavily damaged vehicle to repair — or even worse, a totaled vehicle. You can find yourself and others injured — or the accident can be deadly. Regardless of the severity of the accident, there is a multitude of hoops that the insurance companies will want you to jump through, whether they are related to property damages or medical expenses.

More times than not, insurance companies will hold out as long as they can, and as firmly as they can, to avoid paying you or to pay you substantially less than you are owed. Because of this, it is extremely important that you have the proper legal representation and legal aid from a team of Laredo car accident lawyers like us here at Alex R. Hernandez Jr. PLLC — where Alex and his team will fight to get you the settlement that you deserve.
In The Event Of An Car Accident
If you are involved in an car accident in a traffic collision there are a couple things that you must do that might help you build your personal injury claim against the insurance company.
1. First, it is imperative that you make sure that both yourself and the passengers in your vehicle are alright. If there is an immediate medical attention that you or your passengers require, call an ambulance. After you have checked yourself and your passengers be sure to check on the other vehicle.
2. Next, it is important to call the police and exchange information with the other vehicles that have been involved in the accident. Doing so will ensure that the police can write a proper police report and document the crash, as well as allowing you to get the other driver’s insurance information. It might also be beneficial to take down the information of a witness so that you may be better able to substantiate your claim later on.
3. Once you have exchanged information, follow up with your medical treatment. If you “feel fine” but your back aches, it is important to see a medical professional before your injuries get worse down the road.
4. After you receive the damage valuation for the vehicle, and your medical bills, it is time to make your personal injury and accident claims. At first, your insurance company might quickly respond, asking you to settle for a less than ideal claim. Do no such thing.
