Car & 18 Wheeler Collisions
Recent statistics from the Texas Department of Transportation report that one person was injured every 2 minutes 16 seconds, and one reportable crash occurred every 71 seconds…
More often than not, these accidents are the result of someone’s negligence or recklessness.
If you or a loved one has been the victim of a negligent or reckless driver, it is imperative that you consult an attorney immediately. It is typical for an insurance company to push for your “recorded statement” of the accident soon after the event, and this can greatly hamper your recovery of losses.
It is unreasonable for anyone to expect you to give an accurate account of an accident immediately after it has occurred. Typically, your physical and mental status hampers your ability to think and remember clearly. Additionally, your injuries may not be fully manifested for days — even weeks — after your crash. You also should consult an attorney before making your statement to the insurance adjuster just so you can be fully aware of your rights before doing so.
Knowing what to do — and perhaps more importantly, what NOT to do — is vital to protecting your right to compensation for damages caused by an auto accident resulting from the negligence or recklessness of another.
