There are many various forms of automobile accident injuries that you or someone you love might receive in a crash, ranging from a debilitating case of whiplash to a serious concussion. You may have been taken to the emergency room or required a lengthy stay in the hospital. It’s possible that you needed diagnostic testing like an X-ray, CT scan, or MRI. Physical therapy, medicine, surgery, and maybe long-term care may be required for treatment.
Expenses after an automobile accident can quickly add up, but you shouldn’t have to pay for someone else’s carelessness if you didn’t cause the accident. Unfortunately, many crash victims have a difficult time recovering compensation for their losses. That’s because insurance companies are known for making lowball settlement offers or, even worse, blaming you for the entire accident.

- CALL THE POLICE, so you can get accident report.
- IF YOU’RE SERIOUSLY INJURED, go to the Emergency Room. IF YOU’RE NOT SERIOUSLY INJURED, call me and get seen by a doctor the same day.
- GET AS MANY PICTURES OR VIDEO AS YOU CAN, the other drivers, their licensed plate, picture of your car and their car, preserve the evidence.
- GET WITNESS INFORMATION get the name and number of the witnesses that may have been on the scene and in any portion of the accident.
- REPORT THE ACCIDENT TO YOUR INSURANCE COMPANY.Make a call to your insurance company and let them know. Inform them that you were involved in an automobile accident, but refrain from going into too much detail. Keep your remarks short and limited to the essential facts.
Don’t Tell Insurance Companies: I feel fine, my injuries are minor, I will provide a recorded statement and it was my fault.

What if I wasn’t at blame in the car accident?
Texas is a “fault” auto insurance state, which means that if you’re in a car accident that wasn’t your fault, the person who caused the accident is usually held responsible for your damages. That means that in the vast majority of circumstances, if you were wounded in a car accident caused by someone else’s negligence, you should be entitled to compensation.
All drivers in Texas are required to have car insurance with minimum liability coverage, which gives you a few alternatives for recovering compensation if you are injured in an incident that wasn’t your fault. These are some of the possibilities:
- Using the at-fault driver’s insurance policy to file a claim
- Using your own insurance company to file a claim
- Taking legal action against the at-fault driver
It’s important to remember that, under the state’s comparative negligence regulations, if you’re judged to be partially at fault for your auto accident, your compensation may be lowered by the percentage of blame you’re given.
What’s The Average Car Accident Settlement in Texas?
The amount of compensation you’ll be able to obtain for your car accident will be determined by the specifics of your case, such as the severity of your injuries and the crash’s overall impact on your life. If you were wounded in a car accident that wasn’t your fault, you may be eligible to compensation for the following:
- Property Damage
- Costs of Medicine
- Lost Wages
- Pain and Suffering
- Replacement Services for Earning Capacity Loss
