The moments after a car accident are usually disorienting. Let the police figure it out. Get to a safe spot at the crash site then call 911. Around here, that will likely be a Pearland Police Department (PPD) officer or a state trooper with Texas Highway Patrol (THP). You can cooperate with the officer, but do not go into detail with them – or anyone else - about how the accident happened or your injuries. Stick to the facts – name, time, insurance information, etc.
Seek medical attention as soon as possible. In the best-case scenario, you will see a physician or an orthopedic specialist the day of the accident. In Pearland and the surrounding tri-county area, emergency trauma medical services are available at places like HCA Houston Healthcare and Neighbors Emergency Center. If you did not see a doctor right after the crash, it is still worthwhile to get a thorough medical examination a day or days later.
You will also want to contact an experienced Pearland car accident attorney who has winning experience throughout the tri-county and Greater Houston areas. A verified lawyer with a strong track record of successful car accident claims can take on the insurance company and aggressively negotiate for maximum compensation while you focus on healing.
