What To Do Immediately Following the Accident
If you are involved in a car accident, it is important to understand your responsibilities and your options for filing a claim for your injuries. Normally, a car accident generates a police report that will outline who was at fault for the crash and the circumstances of the accident. It is very important that this report is correct and that you secure a copy as soon as possible.
You will also want to collect as much information as possible about the other driver, any witnesses, and the scene of the crash as well. The more information you gather at the scene, the more your attorney will have to work with to pursue your case. Take pictures if possible and be sure to collect the names, addresses, and phone numbers of witnesses.
Once you have the police report and have sought medical treatment, you will want to talk to a personal injury attorney. At The Messina Law Firm, PC, we will review your case and determine the best way to pursue compensation for your injuries.
What Can You Recover in A Car Accident Case?
Every car accident case is different, but most lawsuits based on car crashes seek certain types of compensation, including:
- Medical bills, including therapy and long-term treatment
- Lost wages due to inability to work
- Disability expenses, both temporary and permanent
- Pain and suffering
If you have been involved in a car accident, it is very important that you take the right steps to seek compensation for your injuries in a timely manner. The statute of limitations imposed by the state limits the amount of time you have to file a claim. In the state of Texas, you typically have two years after the injury occurred to file a personal injury lawsuit.
