Fender benders can harm more than your bumper

If you're new to driving in Texas, you might be facing one of the biggest challenges of your life. It's no secret that roadways in this state are often cluttered with traffic and extremely difficult to navigate. You are no doubt like most drivers who do their best to adhere to all posted traffic signs and official safety regulations. Even if you're cautious and alert behind the wheel, however, sometimes there's little to nothing you can do to avoid a crash, especially if a distracted driver is in your midst.

If you're in an accident, you're likely to be emotionally distraught, perhaps even confused or frightened. Even in a minor accident, you might suffer severe injuries that leave you in need of immediate medical attention. It would be nice if, in the event of a fender bender, you could merely exchange pertinent information with the other driver and be on your way. However, this might not be the case if you suffer injury.

What to do following a collision

If you are able to speak after an accident, you may want to contact your immediate family members if you're able and let them know you're okay. Whether your injuries are non-life-threatening or more serious, the following list includes information regarding important post-accident tips that may be helpful:

  • Seek medical attention.
  • If possible, ask someone to photograph the scene and record details of the events leading up to the accident.
  • Report the collision to your insurance agent.
  • Ask your insurance agent to get in touch with the other driver's insurance company.
  • If your injuries prevent you from being able to work, get in touch with your employer (if you have one) to let him or her know about the situation.

How long it takes you to achieve a full recovery (if you're able to) varies depending on various factors. Even less lengthy recoveries often require different types of care supplies, repeated medical assistance, and other unforeseen expenses. If this type of financial hardship makes it difficult for you to make ends meet, you might want to do what many other Texas residents have done in the past and discuss your particular situation with an experienced attorney.

Getting life back on track after a Texas automobile accident is not always easy. Don't be afraid to lean on family members and trusted good friends for support.
