Unfortunately, some of us here in Odessa are going to get in an auto accident. There is a process that you should use to get the best chance of the maximum recovery allowed by law. At Carabin Shaw, we will take you through that process and show you what to do, how it works and what you can recover money for. It all starts with what to do immediately after an auto accident.

The Five Key Steps Everyone Should Take After They Have a Car Accident in Odessa,Texas

Ifat all possible, Carabin Shaw suggests that anyone take each of the following key steps:

  • Get everyone involved medical attention as soon as possible – If anyone involved in any aspect of the crash looks like they need an ambulance, tell the 911 operator this and get them one. If you or your loved one were not brought from the scene of the crash in an ambulance or have yet to go to the doctor yet, do it now. Severe and serious injuries sometimes have delayed onset of symptoms. Inform any medical professionals you were involved in an accident and the details. Follow the treatment plan they give you as closely as possible. Keep any and all medical statements and bills. If you have no health insurance, please tell us. We can and will work with you to help you in getting the medical care you need.
  • Take pictures of all the damage to your vehicle. Also take photos of the other vehicle, if possible. Use your smart phone for this if possible. Photographs are frequently quite important to tell the true story of how any wreck happened. If you are in possession of your car, take more pictures than you think you need of it. If your auto has gotten towed, Carabin Shaw will work closely with you to get the needed photos.
  • Please write down all the phone numbers and names of any and all people who may have witnessed your accident. The witnesses to your accident are usually the best way to determine how your auto wreck occurred. If there aren’t any witnesses, we will use other evidence as the needed proof of your case.
  • Please don’t speak to any insurance carrier – You may well think that it would be best to call any insurance company that says it is involved in your accident yourself. That is not true. Insurance carriers always work hard, trying to avoid paying even minimum amounts or even deny you settlement payments of money for your car accident, related losses and injuries. On top of this, insurance carriers may actually record your phone calls and use parts of what you do say in an attempt to prevent your receiving fair and full compensation. Carabin Shaw’s accident lawyers will take care of any and all communications with insurance companies on our clients behalf so that their calls and statements are not used against their claim when they are taken out of their context. When an insurance company gives you a call, simply tell them that your attorney will get in contact with them. We will file the needed reports about your wreck and Carabin Shaw will directly deal with the insurance attorneys and adjusters.
  • Call Carabin Shaw, you auto accident professionals, as soon as possible – Typically, the sooner we get involved with the case, the better. The defendants in cases like yours have experienced veteran trial lawyers working on their behalf. We always work our hardest to secure all the important evidence needed to build your case. We will also advise you on what important steps you can take to have as strong a claim as possible. Our initial consultations are always free and no obligation to you.
