What to do after a car accident

Unfortunately, many people do not know what to do after a car accident. It is understandable as such a sudden event can leave a person distraught and confused. Still, it is vital to have an idea of what your next step will be so that you can get the help and compensation you need.

The auto collision lawyers at Begum Law Group have handled thousands of car accident claims. They understand the steps you can take immediately following a crash that may help you successfully pursue compensation. They are also aware of common mistakes made, which could make obtaining compensation harder.

To improve your opportunity to obtain a financial recovery after a crash, the attorneys at the Begum Law Group recommend that you:

  • Seek medical treatment right away
  • Call 911 to ensure the police come to the accident scene
  • Document the accident by taking pictures or recording with your phone
  • Obtain witnesses’ names and contact information
  • Obtain the other driver’s name, contact information, and insurance information
  • Notify your auto insurer of the accident
  • Do not speak to the other driver’s insurance company before hiring an attorney
  • Hire an auto accident attorney as soon as possible


Sometimes it can be difficult to go through these steps after a crash. If you were severely injured and immediately transported to the hospital, you may not have the opportunity to obtain the other driver’s or witness’s information or to document the scene. This does not mean your claim is doomed. It is more important for you to hire an experienced automobile accident lawyer to investigate the incident.

If you suffered an auto accident injury, then you should speak with an attorney about seeking a car accident settlement. Though it may benefit your claim to file a personal injury lawsuit, most car accident cases are resolved through an insurance settlement, not at trial. Texas drivers are legally required to carry insurance that covers bodily injuries and property damage. If the insurance system works as it should, then you should receive an insurance payout from the liable party’s insurer that covers your economic and non-economic injuries.

The car wreck attorneys at the Begum Law Group are highly experienced in negotiating insurance settlements. They carefully review your circumstances to determine an appropriate value for your damages, including your:

  • Medical expenses
  • Lost earning capacity
  • Physical pain
  • Mental anguish
  • Physical limitations
  • Disfigurement
  • Property damage
