Auto Accident Tips Dallas/Fort Worth Car Accident Lawyer
If you have been involved in an auto accident—whether it’s a car accident, motorcycle accident or truck accident—there are several things you should keep in mind to increase your chances of protecting your rights and obtaining the money you need and deserve after being injured through no fault of your own:
Never accept an insurance company’s initial offer
After you’ve been seriously injured in an accident, the negligent person’s insurance company will likely try to deny your claim or offer you a quick and fast a settlement far less than you deserve. Often times, an insurance company’s initial offer sounds like a lot of money—but when you consider the long-term impact of your injuries, the amount is often a mere pittance. Experienced Dallas/Fort Worth auto accident lawyers can help you understand the true value of your claim so you don’t settle for less than you are rightfully entitled to.
Never talk to an insurance claims adjuster
Shortly after you are involved in an accident, you will likely be contacted by the negligent person’s insurance company. When they call, it is important not to talk to them. You don’t have to be rude; simply state that your attorney will handle all communication on your behalf. It is important to have your attorney talk to claims adjusters on your behalf so that you do not inadvertently harm your chances at recovering the money you need and deserve.

Take pictures of the accident scene
After an accident, it is important to take pictures of the accident scene and the damage to yours and the other vehicle. Keeping a disposable camera in your glove box is a good idea for such emergencies. Pictures should be taken from a variety of distances and angles to show an accurate representation of the damage and the accident scene. If you cannot take pictures immediately after your accident, take pictures as soon as possible afterward—or have someone do it for you.
Document your injuries
When you are injured in an accident, Dallas/Fort Worth auto accident lawyers know that a detailed written and pictorial diary of your injuries is paramount to proving the validity and extent of your injuries.
Talk to an attorney
It is important to talk to an experienced Dallas/Fort Worth auto accident attorney as soon as you can after an accident. A qualified attorney can not only explain your rights, but help you protect those rights while fighting for the maximum compensation to which you are legally entitled. Attorneys are usually able to recover more money in damages for injured victims than people can obtain on their own—even after attorney’s fees are paid. An attorney is your best bet at getting maximizing your recovery after sustaining a serious injury.
