Car accidents are one of the most common causes of personal injuries and wrongful death in Texas. Distracted driving, driving under the influence of alcohol or drugs, speeding, and lack of attention are all common causes of crashes. Unfortunately, thousands of crashes happen every day, leaving victims seriously injured or even killed.

If you or a loved one is involved in a car accident, it is critical that you protect your interests. Selecting the right personal injury attorney is the first step to ensure you are treated fairly by the insurance companies. The Cowden Law Firm is experienced in handling car accidents successfully for our clients. Every case is different: many cases need to be pushed aggressively in court and even taken to trial to get what the client deserves. Other cases may be suited for an early settlement before a lawsuit is ever filed. We are committed to achieving a fair outcome in your case, and making sure you receive the compensation you deserve.

If you are involved in a car accident, the process can be overwhelming. Let us help you through the process. Our team is committed to providing an exceptional client experience from start to finish. Every client will have a personal consultation with attorney George Cowden IV. The entire Cowden Law Firm team will take the lead and guide you through the entire process: filing a claim with the other driver’s insurance; filing a claim with your own insurance; resolving your property damage claim; rental car; ensuring you receive the appropriate medical care from experienced physicians; helping you keep track with medical appointments; obtaining all medical records, lost wages information, and other materials; providing a written demand to the appropriate insurance companies; filing a lawsuit and litigating the case; taking the case to trial; if settlement is in the client’s best interest, negotiating the highest possible settlement for you; providing the appropriate paperwork to finalize your settlement.

Many injuries sustained in car accidents do not appear immediately. Instead, injuries to the neck and back may not fully develop for several days or even weeks. Insurance companies often use “gaps” in medical treatment as a way to try and deny or minimize personal injury claims. These companies and their lawyers rely on the same playbook to avoid responsibility in personal injury cases. That is why it is critically important that you seek representation from an attorney experience in handling personal injury cases.

If you are injured in a car accident, following these steps will help ensure your health as well as protect your rights should you decide to pursue a legal action or file an insurance claim:

  • Immediately call 911. Request that police come to the scene.

  • Take photos of the damaged vehicles.
  • Get insurance information of the other drivers in the accident
  • Get the names of any passengers in the accident
  • Get the names, addresses, and phone numbers of any witnesses of the accident.
  • Contact an experienced personal injury attorney to ensure your rights are protected and you do not jeopardize your case.
  • Do not talk to the insurance company of the other driver. NEVER give a recorded statement before speaking with an attorney.
  • Consult with a personal injury attorney before signing anything.
  • Fully report your injuries and symptoms to the paramedics and all medical providers. This is especially important if you are lost consciousness, are disoriented or confused, or experienced memory loss. These are symptoms of a brain injury.
