Two people were flown to hospital after a crash near Farm Road 933 and Highway 174. One car impacted the other, and the second car spun around and struck a culvert, flipping it on its side. The two in the flipped car were the ones who had to be flown to the local hospital.
If you are involved in a vehicle accident, you may find yourself feeling panicked or angry, as well as shaky, since you may be injured. Following the steps recommended by your Dallas accident attorney, you can help to protect the evidence for your eventual case.
Pull over out of the roadway, if you are in the way of traffic. Your vehicle should be parked out of traffic. Check yourself, your passengers and others for injuries, and call 911 for police or ambulance response.
Kirkendall Dwyer LLP recommends that you exchange insurance and contact information with others involved in the accident. Jot down the other driver’s license plate number, address and make and model of their car. Do not discuss who may be at fault.
Record all the details of the wreck, including the date, day, time, location and the weather conditions. Photograph all the vehicles involved and the road surface as well, if it may have been a factor. This is all evidence that you can use when your Dallas accident attorney seeks compensation on your behalf for your injuries and property damage.
Speak with witnesses to the accident, and write down their names and contact information. Call your insurance agent, or the company’s toll-free number if you are not in your hometown. Call while all the information is still fresh, rather than trying to remember things later on.
