Wherever you are in the region – like Calhoun, Gonzalez, or Dewitt counties – after a bad car accident, you need to make sure you are in a safe place at the scene and then call 911. The number will connect you with the closest law enforcement. Around here, the responding officer will likely be from the Victoria Police, Victoria County Sheriff’s Office, or the Texas Highway Patrol. Stay at the scene until the police arrive. Get checked out by emergency medical personnel, then go see a doctor. Trauma care services are offered throughout the city and surrounding area at places like DeTar Hospital Navarro, Citizens Medical Center, and Victoria ER. You also need to contact an attorney as soon as possible to protect your right to compensation and help you weigh your options.
