IF YOU ARE INVOLVED IN AN AUTO ACCIDENT IN LEWISVILLE or SAN ANTONIO:


FIRST AND FOREMOST STOP

Never leave the scene of an accident. The law requires that you stop if your vehicle has collided with another vehicle (including motorcycles and bicycles), a pedestrian, an animal, or with someone else’s property. Leaving the scene of an accident scene can result in having your driving your license suspended. Stop your vehicle in a safe place. Be aware of the traffic situation, and any other potential dangers, such as fire.


SAFETY ON THE SCENE

An accident scene can quickly become a multi-accident scene. Passers-by may impede traffic by slowing down to view the accident. Debris from your collision or your disabled vehicle can pose hazards that can lead to additional crashes. Although it is wise to try and preserve the scene of a collision, putting safety first is vital. Pay attention to road conditions and traffic around you as you exit your vehicle. If it is possible to do so without placing anyone at risk, mark the scene with flares or other warning equipment.


SAFEGUARD THE INJURED

Notify 911 to report any injuries or fatalities and call for medical assistance. Provide the number of injured persons to insure enough emergency personnel responds to the scene. You should do your best to provide immediate assistance to other motorists, passengers or pedestrians that may have been injured in the accident. Do not attempt to move an injured person unless their life is in eminent danger. If possible, wait for the ambulance to arrive.. Report all injuries to the law enforcement officials who respond to the accident scene.


GET MEDICAL CARE:

Even if you feel that injuries you sustained in the collision are minor, do not refuse medical treatment at the scene. Too often, accident victims find that the injuries they thought were minor prove to be otherwise. The "adrenaline rush" from the accident can mask your symptoms -- a physical examination may reveal an injury that you do not yet feel. Tell the doctor if you have any loss of memory, headache, blood or fluid in your ear, dizziness, disorientation, nausea, confusion, or any other unusual physical or mental feeling- it is best to be safe, by reporting your symptoms so that the doctor can rule out the possibility of a concussion or brain injury. Also, if you are injured in the accident and sue the other driver, you may find that the other driver argues that your injuries were not related to the accident if you do not have recent documentation.


EXCHANGE INFORMATION:

If you are involved in an accident, you are required to provide certain information to the other parties involved. Likewise, fellow motorists, passengers or pedestrians involved in the accident must share similar information with you. Also, it is often wise to ask for the information of witnesses to the accident just in case you need to have them testify at a later date. It may also be useful to take notes and photographs at the scene of the accident. If you are physically unable to do so, this may be done by relatives who meet you at the scene.

The key information to exchange in the aftermath of an accident includes:

  • Location of the accident
  • Name, address and contact details of person(s) involved
  • Driver license number
  • License plate number of the vehicles involved
  • Make and model of vehicles involved
  •  Auto insurance information for the motorists involved.

 
It is also important that you make notes about the accident as soon afterward as you are able to do so. This helps ensure that your recall of the circumstances is as fresh as possible. Write down a description of the events that occurred – how the accident happened, including weather, traffic and road conditions. Also make note of any details you think might be relevant. If you are able to make a sketch of the crash scene, do so. Do not forget to document any obstructions or obstacles in the area, signs, pavement issues (such as potholes, uneven lanes or other damage), vehicle skid marks, and the like. Be aware that if litigation results from the accident, you may have to share your notes with somebody that you are suing, or somebody who is suing you.
