ADDISON CAR ACCIDENT LAWYER CHECKLIST

This checklist is for anyone who has been involved in a car accident. It also contains information for those who have been injured in those accidents.

1) Remain composed. A motor vehicle accident is a traumatic experience. It’s natural to become enraged. Maintain your composure and keep an eye on yourself, your passengers, and those in other vehicles;

2) Dial 911 to summon law enforcement and emergency services. If you are hurt, you will need the assistance of the police and paramedics. The paramedics will help you figure out how serious the injury is and if you need to go to the hospital. If you are wounded, you should be examined by medical personnel to ensure that you are not more severely injured than you think.

During their investigation, the police would interview the drivers and witnesses and compile a report. If the Addison Police Department is the entity that handled the accident, you can request a copy of the police report.

Any accident involving injury will be investigated by the police and a report will be written. They’ll interview you, the other passengers, and any witnesses on the scene before filing a police report. They also obtain all of the parties’ identification details, as well as their vehicle liability insurance information;

3) Compile a list of witnesses. If there are any witnesses who come forward to assist, you can obtain their names and contact details. It’s possible they won’t be able to wait before the cops come.

Even if the witness did not directly witness the crash, they might have overheard people admitting who was at fault. This will come in handy if other drivers later want to change their story about what happened;

4) Get the other drivers’ identification and car insurance. Create a list of all your drivers’ names, phone numbers, and addresses, as well as a copy of their driver’s license for verification (photograph it if possible) – you need to make sure they are who they claim they are – and car insurance.

If your accident prevents you from gathering this information, have a friend or family member come to the scene and assist you;

5) Photograph the damage and the accident scene. Take photos of all the vehicles on the scene, including your own, to show the extent of the damage and the location of the vehicles. Even if the vehicles have been relocated, perform this step.

The photographs of the damage at the scene serve as proof of the extent of the damage. In the event of a dispute, photos of the damage can often help recreate how the accident occurred. If you are unable to do so, have a friend or family member come to the scene to assist;

6) Seek medical attention as soon as possible if you are injured. If you are injured, you may need to be taken to the hospital by ambulance. If you do not take an ambulance but later realize you are injured, you should seek medical attention as soon as possible so that medical professionals can treat your injury. If you decide to drive yourself to the emergency room, the following emergency rooms are in the Addison, Texas area: 

ER Near Me Addison – 15240 Dallas Pkwy, Dallas, TX 75248. Phone +1 469 577 9720

Methodist Hospital For Surgery: Emergency Room – 17101 Dallas Pkwy, Addison, TX 75001. Phone +1 469 248 3900

Concentra Urgent Care – 15810 Midway Rd, Addison, TX 75001. Phone +1 972 458 8111

Call For A Free Case Review (972) 599 4100

7) Photograph your injuries if they are visible. If you have cuts, scrapes, bruising, or any other visible injury, make sure to photograph it. This helps to demonstrate that you are not simply claiming to have been injured; you have visible proof;

8) Get an estimate for your vehicle’s repairs. Take detailed pictures of the damage to your own vehicle. Photograph the damage from different angles and with different lighting. Take photos from a distance as well as close up for perspective.

Get an estimate for the cost of repairing the damage to your vehicle. Most body shops will give you a free estimate because they want your business, and the estimate will be based on how much it should actually cost to repair your vehicle. If the other driver’s insurance refuses to pay for your vehicle damage or only pays a portion of it, your estimate serves as proof of how much it will cost to repair your vehicle.

Do not rely on the insurance company’s estimate; they will always write low estimates that are insufficient to repair your vehicle. Insurance companies write a low initial estimate and then do supplemental estimates with the body shop while the repairs are being done.

If you have a dispute with the insurance company and need to file a lawsuit to force them to pay, you don’t want to have to rely on their low initial estimate as proof of how much it will cost to repair your vehicle. The insurance company’s low estimate will be insufficient. Obtain a full estimate from a reputable body shop;

Body shops will usually provide free estimates for your damaged vehicle because they want your business. Body shops in the Addison area include:

Caliber Collision – 15508 Midway Rd, Addison, TX 75001. Phone +1 469 840 0895

Service King Collision Carrollton – 2309 Midway Rd, Carrollton, TX 75006. Phone +1 972 407 0275

Xtreme Collision Repair – 15502 Midway Rd, Addison, TX 75001. Phone +1 972 233 0207

AutoNation Collision Center Addison – 4300 Lindbergh Dr, Addison, TX 75001. Phone +1 682 214 2011

Automobile Rentals. You may require a rental car while your vehicle is being repaired. Choose your rental car facility wisely. Some rental car companies charge twice the “insurance rate” that auto insurance companies will pay. You do not want to be stuck with half of a large rental car bill as a result of renting from one of these locations.

To set up billing, some rental car companies contact the auto insurance company directly. Select a rental car company that will contact the insurance company to obtain permission to bill the insurance company directly. After an accident, the following rental car companies in Addison, Texas typically work with auto insurance companies:

Enterprise Rent-A-Car – 15500 Midway Rd, Addison, TX 75001. Phone +1 972 239 5751

Hertz – 16250 Midway Rd, Addison, TX 75001. Phone +1 972 931 0809

Avis Car Rental – 15804 Addison Rd, Addison, TX 75001. Phone +1 972 239 2611

Budget Car Rental – 15804 Addison Rd, Addison, TX 75001. Phone +1 972 239 3181

9) Gather all of your documentation detailing how much everything costs you.

a) Medical Bills: Maintain copies of all medical bills and receipts. If you went to the hospital, you should check your health insurance online to see your EOBs (explanations of benefits). The EOBs will show every medical facility that has billed you so far, including the ambulance, hospital, ER doctors, radiologists, and lab work. This information will assist your lawyer in locating all medical bills and records pertaining to your injury.

b) Vehicle Damage: Make copies of any additional bills, records, and receipts you may have, such as vehicle estimates, towing bills, storage bills, rental car bills, and anything else related to your property damage.

c) Lost Income: If you have lost income, you should provide copies of your most recent 2-3 months’ pay stubs, which show the amount you were earning prior to the accident. You’ll need copies of any doctor’s notes that are keeping you from working. Pay statements covering the time period you are missing days or hours at work are required to demonstrate the difference between what you were earning just prior to the accident and what you earned during the time you were absent due to the accident. If you were forced to use sick or vacation time, obtain copies of your pay statements that show how many hours you were required to use. Those hours are no longer available for use. You can be compensated for the hours you lost;

10) Be cautious about what you post on social media. Assume that the insurance company’s adjuster and lawyers will see whatever you post. People who post pictures on Facebook usually show them having a good time with their spouse, friends, or family. If you are injured and undergoing treatment, those photos can be misinterpreted and used against you by the insurance company and their lawyers to claim you must not have been injured because you were participating in all of these activities and your photos appear to show you to be fine.

11) Retain the services of a personal injury attorney to handle your auto accident injury case. Before hiring an attorney, do your homework. Inquire with family and friends if they know of a good personal injury lawyer. If a lawyer is unable to speak with you or return your call within a reasonable amount of time, that lawyer is not appropriate for your case. You must speak with the lawyers you are considering hiring. Personal injury attorneys provide free consultations, so making the call will not cost you anything.

There are time limits for filing lawsuits as well as time limits for filing certain types of claims you may be entitled to make. Make sure to protect your rights and your personal injury claim as a result of the car accident.
