Hundreds of thousands of car accidents occur each year throughout the state of Texas, but that does not make them any less impactful for those involved in them. Driving past a wreck on your way to work is one thing, but it is an entirely different story when it is your life, your passengers and your vehicle on the line. When that is the case, I’m here to offer my expertise. As a car accident attorney, my goal is to help you seek the appropriate compensation for any injuries you or your loved ones have sustained from the collision.
Whether or not you seek my counsel after an accident, I believe that it is important for you to know what to do after a car wreck, especially if you have been hurt. To that end, you will find below some general information about the legalities involved in car accident cases. But first, a note about keeping things in perspective:
After an accident, your first priority should be your own health. Everything else can wait. It’s vital that you get the medical care you need, along with post-traumatic counseling, if applicable. Before you worry about anything else, take care of yourself physically and emotionally.
If you do not have health insurance and cannot afford to pay for medical care out of your pocket, the O'Hara Law Firm can help you locate medical providers that will treat patients without health insurance. Some doctors and medical providers will agree to wait to get paid until after your auto accident claim settles.
