After a car accident, call 911. In general, Texas law requires you to stay at the scene of a crash until local law enforcement or the Texas Highway Patrol arrives. Even if you feel okay, get checked out by emergency medical professionals. They may detect delayed pain, internal bleeding, or broken bones. See a doctor as soon as possible to protect your health and create an official medical record of your injuries. Contact a Texas car accident attorney to protect your legal right to compensation and keep your options open.
