Lubbock Auto Accident Lawyers

Serving Clients Throughout Northwest Texas

Auto accidents are the most common cause of personal injury claims and lawsuits. Unfortunately, these car wrecks occur daily across the country and Texas is no exception. These accidents are mostly caused by human error and leave victims facing days, weeks, months, or years of recovery that add up to staggering medical and other out-of-pocket expenses while facing lost wages or income. Without the saving grace of personal injury law, Such accidents can cause victims and their families financial ruin. 

Fortunately, under Texas personal injury law, you are entitled to fair compensation when you have been injured due to another’s carelessness, negligence, or wrongdoing. This generally means dealing with the at-fault driver’s insurance company which can be frustrating and challenging for various reasons. However, if you have a skilled lawyer on your side, these companies understand that they cannot take advantage of you and are more likely to settle for what is fair and just based on the facts of your case. By turning to The Gorilla Law Firm, you will thus increase your chances of an optimum result.

What to Do After Being Injured in a Car Accident

What you do and don’t do after an injury accident is very important to your legal claim. Your first step is to seek medical care, even if you believe you are not injured or are only slightly injured. This is vital because injuries often do not manifest immediately. You will be properly diagnosed and given treatment by getting checked out, and your injuries and medical care will be documented. Without this documentation, it can be argued that you were not injured. 

It is also vital to get a police report, exchange information with the other party, get witness information, take photos of the accident scene, including both cars, and write down as many details as possible of what happened. Finally, call an injury lawyer for guidance. 

Do not admit fault to anyone. Tell the police the facts only. Do not make any recorded statements to insurers, sign anything they present to you, accept any settlement they offer or try to negotiate with them without consulting with an attorney first. The Gorilla Law Firm can handle these steps for you, can build your claim to put you in the strongest legal position possible, and fight for your best interests moving forward.
