What are Steps to take after a car accident?

It is a common misconception that you do not need to report an accident to your insurance company if you were not at fault.

  • Step One: The first step to take after a car accident is to get yourself to safety. Make sure that you are not injured before you relocate yourself, and call the police or an ambulance if there are any injuries sustained by others involved in the Houston car wreck.
  • Step Two: Document the accident and be as detailed as possible. Make sure that you take pictures of anything that happened to you or the other person’s vehicles, property damage, details such as the other vehicle’s make, model, and license plate number, witnesses, and the overall scene of the car accident.
  • Step Three: Regardless of the situation surrounding your accident, call your insurance company and report it as soon as possible. If you wait too long to report the car accident, your insurance might have reason to deny you coverage.
  • Step Four: It is also within your best interest to see a doctor or physician as soon as possible to ensure that any sustained injuries are addressed.

What Steps to Take After An Auto Accident?

Why am I Scared to Drive After a Car Accident?

A car accident can be a traumatizing experience and may cause severe anxiety or fear in the following days. Many individuals experience fear of driving after being involved in a car accident. This is also known as "vehophobia" and can be considered as a form of Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder.

How to Report a Car Accident to Your insurance Company

Insurance companies may take the things that you say in your initial report after a car crash and try to use them against you. The following are a number of helpful things to think about when reporting a car accident to your insurance company:

  • Be upfront about your injuries - don't self-diagnose, but be sure to mention the existence of any injuries
  • Stick to the facts - don't embellish or add extraneous details; these could be used against you
  • Only answer questions asked of you - don't give the insurance agent more than they asked for
  • Decline to make a recorded statement - You are not required to give a recorded statement, and it can be used against you later
  • Do not settle or sign any checks - the first settlement presented is almost always well below what you deserve

The insurance company is not on your side! The goal of most insurance adjusters is to get you to settle for less than your claim is actually worth. That's why it's crucial that you speak with a Houston car accident attorney as soon as possible after your accident, preferably before you speak with your insurance company. At Haines Law, P.C., we can guide you through the accident claim process, advising you of what to say and how to interact with your insurance adjuster.
