What to do After a Car Accident

Car crashes can often be disorienting, but it is crucial that you remember a few important steps that will protect your health and your potential injury claim:

  1. Immediately after a crash, especially if you or a passenger is injured, call 911.
  2. If a law enforcement officer arrives at the scene of the accident, be sure to give a detailed account of the crash to the best of your ability.
    • It is incredibly important that you file an accident report after your accident.
    • Call to file a crash report if a law enforcement officer was not present at the crash.
  3. Seek medical attention as quickly as possible, even if you do not immediately feel pain following the accident.
    • It is common to not immediately feel the pain of your injuries due to the shock of the crash. Your pain may be delayed or your injuries may have hidden symptoms, so a check-up at a medical care provider is essential.
  4. If possible, take pictures of the accident scene. This includes damages to your vehicle, the other party’s vehicle, your injuries, and any other environmental factors that may have played a role in the accident.

Your Questions Answered

We have straight answers to difficult questions
to help you make critical decisions, navigate
legal process and help you get justice.

Following an accident, there are always more questions
than answers. At Thomas J. Henry, we’re here to answer
any questions you have about your injury case.

Thomas J. Henry Law works on a contingency fee basis. That means our clients pay us nothing unless and until we win their claim. This is part of our No Fee Promises. We also offer advances on qualified cases so you have money to help cover your medical bills and living expenses while you recover.

Our "No Win, No Fee" Promise

Yes. Not only does Thomas J. Henry Law have attorneys on-call 24/7 to assist clients, we are also able to send attorney directly to you. This means if your injuries or schedule keep you from visiting our Houston law offices, one of our car accident attorneys can visit you at your home or the hospital.
Yes. You can still sue if you were the passenger in a car accident – this includes the driver of the vehicle you were in as well as any other drivers that were involved in the crash. To determine who may be liable for your injuries, speak with a licensed Houston auto accident attorney at Thomas J. Henry Law.
If you have been injured, then you have undoubtedly questioned if you should contact an attorney or pursue your claim through your insurer. The important thing to remember is that there is a difference between contacting an attorney and hiring an attorney. Regardless of your injury or how it occurred, it is always best to at least reach out to an attorney. Speaking with an experienced attorney can help you understand the options that are available to you and inform you of your best course of action. This is why Thomas J. Henry Law offers FREE no-risk case consultations to all injured victims.
When you wait to contact a Houston injury attorney to help you with your case, you are risking your entire claim to compensation. Insurance companies do not have your best interest in mind. While they may seem cooperative while on the phone, behind the scenes they are doing everything they can to undermine your claim. A common example of this is the “recorded statement.” The adjuster will claim that providing a recorded statement for reference will help them resolve your claim faster. What they won’t tell you is that they will compare the recorded statement to future conversations for inconsistencies, nor will they tell you that the recorded statement you are providing can be used against you in court.
