Call 911. Remain at the scene until the police – most likely the Austin Police or Texas Highway Patrol – arrive. Leaving the scene of an accident – even if the other driver took off – can lead to charges. Get checked out at the scene by an emergency medical technician (EMT) and then get a more thorough exam from a doctor. In Austin, trauma care is available at hospitals like Baylor, St. David’s, and Dell Seton as well as clinics like Austin Emergency Centers at South Lamar, Far West, or Anderson Mill. You also need to contact an attorney as soon as possible to protect your right to compensation.
