Can I File a Personal Injury Claim in a Crash?
In the unfortunate event of a car crash, it is crucial to take immediate action. First, you will need to contact the police to report the incident and provide as much detail as possible about the fleeing vehicle. Seek medical attention as soon as possible to ensure your health is not at risk, even if injuries are not immediately apparent, and document any damages to your vehicle.
You also need to inform your insurance company about the car crash as soon as possible, as many insurance policies include coverage for situations where the at-fault driver is unidentified or lacks insurance. Uninsured motorist coverage can potentially help cover your medical expenses and property damage resulting from the incident. Cooperate with law enforcement and your insurance company during their investigation, and consider consulting with a Texas car accident attorney for guidance through the claims process.
