First and Foremost, Get Medical Attention
Even if you feel OK right after your car accident, get medical attention. It is difficult to understand the nature and extent of injuries, especially in the confusing minutes and hours after a car crash. Some conditions may not be obvious for days.

At the Tylka Law Firm in League City, Texas, we recommend several other actions after a car accident, but nothing is more important than seeing a doctor. If you do not have health insurance or cannot afford to see a doctor, tell us. In many cases, we are able to advance funds for medical care and living expenses.
Gather as Much Information as You Can and Talk to an Attorney
If you are able to at the scene, gather whatever facts you can. Write down how and why the accident happened. Get the names, contact information and insurance data from the others in the accident.
Get the names and contact information of witnesses and what they said. Get the names of police officers and ambulance personnel. Take pictures. If you cannot, ask a friend or relative to take photos of the scene, the cars involved and your injuries. Remember to use your mobile phone camera, if you do not have another camera available. Get the police reports. Call us to investigate. The Tylka Law Firm has investigators available immediately to go to auto accident scenes.
Notify your insurance company. Tell them the location of the accident and what happened. You do not have to talk to the other person's insurance company. What you say can and will be used against you. The other insurance company will be looking for a mistake in whatever you say. When you are shaken up and in pain from a car accident, you could give confusing statements. Your car accident lawyer can handle communications with insurance companies for you.
