At Daniel Stark Injury Lawyers, our Texas auto accident attorneys have one primary goal in mind when victims come to us after they get hurt in crashes that weren’t their fault: getting them maximum compensation for their medical bills and lost wages.

Our legal team knows the ins and outs of auto accident claims, and we know what it takes to win. And while we do everything we can to take the stress of accidents off the shoulders of victims like you, we also know that the minutes, hours, and days after crashes are critical for success—and victims don’t always have legal advocates on their sides during those times.

You can protect yourself and your rights to compensation by following these two tips after an auto accident:

  1. Get medical attention right away. Go to a doctor or hospital as soon as possible after your crash, even if you don’t think you were seriously injured. Medical records showing the extent and severity of your injuries will serve as valuable evidence for your claim.
  2. Get contact information from the other driver and witnesses. Proving who was at fault in auto accident claims is essential for getting victims the money they deserve, but it can be difficult. However, having witness statements and contact information can make it easier to find out who caused the crash.

It’s also important to call a lawyer right away, as evidence can disappear and statutes of limitations can expire. Don’t leave your family’s future up to chance. Our consultations are always free.
