Car Accident FAQs

Who Should I Contact After a Car Accident?

After you have been involved in a car accident, it is important to call a number of persons and entities to ensure your rights and your safety are taken care of. Below are a list of who should connect with directly following a car accident.

  1. Should I Take Pictures of The Car Accident?
    1. It is imperative that you take pictures of any car accident you have been involved in. Keep in mind that it is important to take pictures from all angles of the collision, as well as from the inside of the vehicle if is safe. By doing so, you retain physical, hard evidence to support your facts if you decide to file a personal injury claim. Furthermore, a car accident lawyer will be able to look at the pictures and use them to help defend your case.
  2. Should I Admit Fault Just to Be Nice?
    1. Never admit it is your fault, even if you truly believe that it is. Remember, professionals have not yet investigated the report and therefore, the other person may be partially at fault as well. By refraining from admitting fault, you protect your rights. If you did admit the accident was your fault, you may be unable to receive compensation for injuries or damages.
  3. Should I Seek Medical Attention?

It is important to seek medical attention immediately after you have been involved in a car accident. Because accidents cause a lot of stress to the human body, a person’s adrenaline may spike, leaving the person unable to feel any injuries, even if the injuries are severe. However, many people who have been involved in auto accidents find that the injuries surface after a few days. By seeking medical attention right away, you ensure that you have not suffered serious injuries.

  1. Should I Contact the Police?

It is extremely important to contact the police after you have been involved in a car accident no matter how minor or severe it may seem. By doing so, you gather documented evidence of the accident that may prevent you from becoming wrongly faulted for the accident.

  1. Should I Call My Insurance Company?
    1. It is extremely important to contact your insurance company after you have been involved in an auto collision, especially if you believe the other driver was at fault. By doing so, you may be able to utilize benefits provided by your insurance company. Failing to do so in a timely manner may leave you dealing with any other expenses alone.
  2. Should I Contact a Car Accident Attorney?
    1. No matter what kind of car accident you have been involved in, it is important to seek experienced legal advice immediately. In doing so, you ensure that your rights and your safety are protected. If the other person is at fault, you may be compensated for your medical expenses and more.

  • Thank you so much Daspit!!

    “Thank you so much Daspit!! You made the accident that I was in not so traumatizing. When I was hit by a person who was not from Houston and did not know downtown well he at first was sorry and admitted it was his fault until the cops showed up. From that point on I was in a panic until I entered your office and you guided me through.I recommend Daspit to anyone who wants to be treated with compassion and needs true guidance through the law.”
