CHECKLIST FOR A CAR ACCIDENT INJURY CASE IN ALLEN, TEXAS

The following checklist is for anyone involved in a car accident but is specifically designed for people needing an Allen car accident attorney.

1) Inspect for any injuries. Examine yourself for injuries. An automobile accident is a sudden and unexpected event. Because of the shock of this unexpected traumatic event, you are most likely experiencing adrenaline pumping through your body. Due to the shock of the accident, people may not realize how seriously they have been injured. Examine yourself for any serious issues. Examine your passengers for any injuries. If they do not require immediate medical attention, check on the occupants of any other vehicles involved in the accident. If anyone is injured, you must seek medical attention immediately.

2) Call 911 for police and ambulance services if anyone is injured, including yourself. The police and paramedics must respond to the scene. The police will need to investigate the accident, and paramedics will need to check on anyone who was injured in the accident.

Allen Police Department’s website can be located here: Allen Police Department

3) Obtain contact information for witnesses. You must obtain the contact information of anyone who witnessed the accident. Witnesses frequently stop to assist after an accident, but because they were not involved in the accident, they may decide to leave once their assistance is no longer required and the police arrive. Before they leave, obtain their contact information, including their name, phone number, email address, and any other information they are willing to provide in case you need to verify what they saw later.

4) Exchange information with all other drivers involved in the accident. Following a car accident, Texas law requires drivers to exchange identification and vehicle liability information. It makes no difference who is at fault; every driver is required to exchange information. Make a copy of the other driver’s ID and insurance card. If you have a cellphone, take a picture of each other driver’s information.

NOTE: If your injury prevents you from performing any of these steps, call a friend or family member to assist you.

5) Photograph the vehicles as well as the accident scene. Take photographs of the damage to all of the vehicles involved in the collision at the scene, even if the vehicles have been moved.

Photograph any debris or skid marks on the ground caused by the accident. Take photos in the direction you were traveling when the accident occurred, as well as photos in the opposite direction. Take photos of the direction they were traveling as well as the direction they came from for the other vehicles involved in the accident.

6) Provide your statement to the police when they request it. Be cooperative with the police. They will take each driver’s statement separately and away from the other drivers to verify what each person’s statement is. You must tell the police officer what happened so that they can use what you say in the police crash report. Get the police officer’s crash report number so you can get a copy later.

Note regarding police crash reports:

Allen Police Department: Often police crash reports take several days to be available. Many police departments allow you to download them online, but Allen Police Department requires you either go in person or request a copy by mail.  The Police Crash Report webpage for the Allen Police Department is located here:  Allen Police Department Crash Incident Reports

Texas Department of Transportation: The Texas DOT receives copies of all police crash reports in the state of Texas. If the accident occurred more than a few weeks ago, the report may be available on the Texas DOT website, which can be found here: TxDOT Crash Reports Online

7) Pay attention to the paramedics’ advice. If you are injured and the paramedics advise you to go to the emergency room, you should do so. They are trained to look for symptoms of trauma in car accidents that may indicate a more serious injury that could be serious and even life-threatening. Follow their advice and get checked out at an emergency room if they recommend it.

8) If symptoms worsen later on. If you were not advised to go to the emergency room but notice your pain from your injury getting progressively worse and your worsening symptoms make you feel you need to go to the emergency room, the following ER locations are nearby in Allen, Texas:

Texas Health Presbyterian Hospital Allen – 1105 N Central Expy, Allen, TX 75013. Phone +1 972 747 1000

Legacy ER & Urgent Care – 1310 W Exchange Pkwy, Allen, TX 75013. Phone +1 972 678 4545

Prestige ER – 7940 Custer Rd, Plano, TX 75025. Phone +1 972 527 3000

1st Class Urgent Care Center – 1811 E Bethany Dr, Allen, TX 75002. Phone +1 214 383 1700

CareNow Urgent Care – Allen – 1218 W McDermott Dr, Allen, TX 75013. Phone +1 972 390 9000

Medical City Children’s Urgent Care Allen – 109 N Central Expy Suite 509, Allen, TX 75013. Phone +1 972 359 6900

9) Seek medical attention for your injury as soon as possible. The purpose of the emergency room visit is to ensure that you are not in a life-threatening situation. They will not typically continue follow-up treatment for the majority of injuries. You must locate a medical facility that can treat your injuries. If you are unsure where to go for treatment, the Law Office of Doug Goyen can assist you in locating a medical facility that will treat you.

If you do not know how you will pay for your treatment, we can locate medical facilities that will accept a letter of protection from our office. A letter of protection is a guarantee from your attorney’s office that the medical facility will be paid as soon as we receive any payments for your injury from the automobile insurance company. This way, you can receive the medical treatment you require for your injury and be reimbursed when the funds are released from the auto insurance companies involved.

10) Get your own estimate for your car. Do not rely on the estimate provided by the insurance company. The insurance company intentionally writes low estimates. A body shop’s estimate is usually higher than an insurance company’s estimate because the body shop bases their estimate on what they believe it will take to repair your vehicle.

The insurance company will not include certain things that need to be repaired in their estimate until the body shop begins repairs and confirms a part needs to be replaced or repaired. If there is a dispute about the claim and you are later forced to file a lawsuit to force the insurance company to repair your vehicle, you will want to have your own estimate as proof of how much the repairs will cost – you do not want to have to rely on the insurance company’s estimate, which does not include everything.

Estimates from body shops: Most body shops provide free estimates on the damage to your vehicle. Body shops in Allen, Texas to get an estimate from include:

Caliber Collision – 29 Prestige Cir, Allen, TX 75002. Phone +1 469 342 8560

Dynamic PDR – 713 E Main St, Allen, TX 75002. Phone +1 972 658 0390

Allen Automotive Repair – 302 N Ash Dr, Allen, TX 75002. Phone +1 972 727 5641

Caliber Collision – 1371 Andrews Pkwy, Allen, TX 75002. Phone +1 214 383 0012

The Painting Place – 1030 W Lucas Rd, Allen, TX 75002. Phone +1 972 727 9411

Rental Car: If you need a rental car because your vehicle is not drivable or while it is being repaired, make sure to use a company that charges insurance company rates for auto accidents. If you do not receive that rate, you will be charged nearly twice as much, and your insurance company will most likely only pay half of your bill. Rental car companies that charge insurance rates for auto accidents will usually bill the insurance company directly. The following car rental companies are located in or near Allen, Texas, and fall into this category.:

Enterprise Rent-A-Car – 29 Prestige Cir, Allen, TX 75002. Phone +1 214 383 2605

Enterprise Rent-A-Car – 1371 Andrews Pkwy A, Allen, TX 75002. Phone +1 972 737 3980

11) Take photographs of the damage to your vehicle that clearly show the extent of the damage. If you are injured in an automobile accident, the insurance company’s adjuster will frequently take photos of the damage to your vehicle from angles and lighting that do not clearly show the damage to your vehicle. They attempt to use these photos in negotiations and later at trial to argue that your damage was insignificant and could not have caused your injury. Take photos of the damage to your vehicle that show the extent of the damage.

12) If you are injured, do not speak with the insurance company. If you are injured in a car accident, the insurance adjuster will try to deny your claim. They will ask you questions in order to elicit information that they can use to avoid paying some or all of your claims. You must have your lawyer communicate with the insurance company on your behalf. Personal injury lawyers who handle car accidents understand the questions that insurance adjusters and investigators ask and how to answer them in ways that do not jeopardize your personal injury claim. If you have not yet hired a personal injury lawyer, inform the insurance company that you will be contacting the lawyer.

13) Be cautious about what you post on social media. Assume that the insurance adjuster, investigators, and lawyers will eventually see everything you post on social media. Any posts on social media made while you are receiving treatment for your injury may be used to refute your claims about your injury. If you post photos of yourself out with friends or family or doing certain activities, the insurance company may be able to use those photos to dispute your claims about how severe your injury is.

14) Do your homework before hiring a personal injury attorney. Do your homework to find the best personal injury lawyer for your case. Before hiring an attorney, make sure you speak with them. Do not allow a case manager to sign you up without first speaking with the actual lawyer.

Consult with a lawyer about your case. Inquire about any concerns you have, and listen to their advice. Personal injury lawyers provide free consultations for car accident cases, so speaking with them will not cost you anything.

We look forward to your phone call. Call us at (972) 599 4100, or contact us on our website contact form.

WHEN YOU SHOULD YOU SEEK AN ATTORNEY FOR A CAR ACCIDENT

If you have been injured in a car accident, you should hire a personal injury lawyer to handle your case. Personal injury cases frequently involve thousands of dollars, and insurance adjusters and insurance company lawyers who work for the insurance companies are trained professionals who carefully examine your claim to see if they can find a reason to deny your injury claim.

If you are injured, do not speak with the insurance company. If there has been an injury, you should consult with a lawyer before speaking with the insurance company.

Insurance adjusters are interested in learning if there is a way to avoid paying a personal injury claim resulting from a car accident. They want to know if their driver was truly to blame for the accident. They will contact their own driver and ask them questions in order to elicit a response indicating that he was not at fault. If their driver picks up on the hints and follows them, you suddenly have a liability dispute.

Insurance adjusters will try to lead you astray with questions about the car accident in order to get you to say something that can be used against you in terms of liability. They want to see if they can get you to say something that will help them prove you were involved in the accident. They want to know if you were driving too fast for the conditions, changed lanes just before the collision, slowed faster than you should have, took faulty evasive action, or did anything that could put you at fault (or on any driver other than their own).

Insurance adjusters examine your claim to see if they can deny it due to coverage issues. Coverage issues occur when their insured has violated the terms of the insurance agreement in some way. They check to see if payments were received on time. They check to see if the vehicle being driven by their insured was properly added to their insurance policy. They examine their driver to see if they were supposed to be driving the vehicle and if the driver provided them with accurate information when they purchased the policy. If there is an issue with the payments, the vehicle, the driver, or any other issues, they will attempt to deny the claim on the basis of a coverage issue.

Insurance adjusters go through your bills with a fine-toothed comb to see if they can deny them. When it comes to medical bills, they frequently claim that the bill was too high and that they will not pay it all. They claim you received medical services that you were not entitled to. Based on what they claim to see in your medical records, they claim that your injury must have been preexisting and unrelated to the car accident.

You need a lawyer who sees these insurance adjuster tactics on a daily basis and understands how to fight insurance companies in injury claims. You should hire an attorney for your personal injury case as soon as possible before the insurance company contacts you about the accident.

Even if you have already spoken with your insurance company, we can still help. The longer you wait, the more difficult it is to resolve any issues. Please contact us so that we can assist you in getting your claim on track so that you can receive the compensation you deserve for your injury. Since 1997, the Law Office of Doug Goyen has represented residents of Allen, Texas in personal injury cases involving automobile accidents. Please contact us at (972) 599 4100.
