Injuries resulting from auto accidents account for the majority of personal injury cases in the nation today. Unfortunately, traffic accidents are all too common with causes ranging from inattentive to drunk drivers. Auto accidents can result in a wide range of injuries, from whiplash, headaches, and bruises to multiple fractures, head trauma, internal injuries, burns, loss of limbs, and damage to the brain and spinal cord. The most devastating result of a car accident is death. In Texas alone, more than 3,000 people lost their lives on roads and highways in 2009 according to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration.

It is difficult and sometimes impossible to gather all of the information needed when involved in a traffic accident. Your first priority should be to get the medical care you need if you are injured . If possible, however, you should try to get as much pertinent information as you can or have another person assist you in doing so. This will consist of d river information, police reports, photographs, witness information, and any other data which may assist your potential claim.
Following your accident, it is important to diligently follow through with all medical treatments, keep track of your medical and other out-of-pocket expenses, and do not communicate or sign any forms from an insurance company without your attorney’s approval.
