For most people who have been injured in an accident, knowing what to do after the dust settles can be very confusing and can cause some people to procrastinate. That is the absolute worst thing to do after a car or truck accident. In Texas, you only have two years to file suit. That may seem like a long time, but trust us. IT IS NOT. Also, procrastinating on doing certain things will only draw your claims against the insurance company out further. In our office, like most offices, we have a set operating system for each of our personal injury clients here in the Forney, Rockwall and Dallas areas, with each client’s case run by an attorney and our staff in a way that best moves the case forward once we receive it. Most firms want to keep that system “proprietary”, but I am willing to share a little of the way we do things in order to help out each injured person, regardless of whether you actually hire our office to help you. Why? because every injured person deserves a fighting chance against the insurance company, not just those who hire an attorney.
So, here is a quick list of the things yo u need to do after a car or truck accident. This list begins AFTER you have received any necessary medical treatments and have begun the recovery process, if possible. This list shows some of the basic steps we take in order to begin moving your claim forward if they have not already been done. So, by doing any or all of these steps prior to hiring our firm, you will speed up the process of settling your claims against the at-fault party.
