The Houston Auto Accidents Attorneys at DeSimone Law Office wish to tell its clients and prospective clients how crucial it is to get any and all information and evidence you can when involved in a car accident. After a car wreck occurs the first thing to do is to check on all people in both cars to see if anyone needs emergency medical attention. Next call the police to come to the scene to do an investigation. Be forewarned that often times the police will not show or will not write a police report if they do not see what is in their opinion enough damage to merit a report. Next get the other party’s name, address, all phone numbers, Texas driver’s license number, license plate, v.i.n. number, make and model of their car, and insurance information. Make sure to write down the other person’s policy number, the names of any insureds on the card, the name of the insurance company and any phone numbers to the insurance company. When involved in a truck accident often times the other vehicle is owned by a company. If the name of the company is visible on the outside of the vehicle,write that down as well. Also make a note of a physical description of the other driver and note the number of people in the other party’s car. Next week we will look at what other information or evidence to obtain at the car accident scene that does not come from the other party.
If you have been involved in an accident, have the other party’s information,are hurt and without transportation andunsure about what to do next, call the lawyers at DeSimone Law Office. We will handle all your auto accident related insurance claims in a timely manner.
