Seek Emergency Medical Care
If you or anyone else involved in the accident is severely injured, call 911 and wait for the first responders to arrive.
Call the Police
The police will arrive to investigate the accident, gather statements, and create a police report. Ask for a copy of this report, as this will be essential in building your case.
Get as much evidence from the accident scene as you can. This includes taking pictures or videos, getting contact information from any witnesses, and documenting your injuries.
See Primary or Urgent Care
Even if you don’t have visible injuries from the accident, it is always a good idea to be checked by a medical professional. Your injuries may not be visible, or the symptoms may have not presented themselves yet. Additionally, an official medical report of your injuries is helpful to your case.

Understanding Personal Injury Laws in Texas
With personal injury cases, Texas has specific laws in place to help navigate them.
To receive compensation in a case, it’s necessary to prove that the other party acted negligently. This can be difficult to prove if you don’t have experience. Four criteria must be met to establish negligence:
- Duty: The defendant had a duty of care to the plaintiff
- Breach: The defendant failed the duty of care
- Causation: The defendant’s actions caused the plaintiff’s injuries
- Damages: The plaintiff suffered a form of identifiable harm
Evidence must be gathered to prove that the defendant acted negligently.
Effective evidence can include:
- Witness statements
- Medical records
- Financial statements
- Police report
- Photos and videos of the accident
Statute of Limitations
A statute of limitations is the amount of time you have from the date of your accident to file a claim. In Texas, the statute of limitations for most personal injury claims is two years. A claim must be made within this amount of time, or a court will likely not take it.
Modified Comparative Negligence
Texas is a modified comparative negligence state, which means that the injured party can still file a claim and receive compensation for an accident that was partially their fault. The injured party will receive compensation based on the level of fault that is assigned to them. However, if they are found 51% or more at fault, they cannot recover any damages.
Frequently Asked Questions
What Is My Personal Injury Case Worth in San Antonio?
Case worth can vary greatly depending on many factors, like your injury severity, the extent of your losses, the number of defendants, your age, and your income. Only your personal injury attorney would be able to give an accurate number.
What Should I Do When Injured in an Accident?
If you’re injured in any type of accident, your first step should be to seek immediate medical attention, even if you’re not sure you’re insured. This guarantees that your injuries will be diagnosed and treated, as well as a medical report to use in your case.
Why Do I Need a Personal Injury Lawyer?
An experienced personal injury lawyer is essential to get fair compensation for the injuries that you sustained during your accident. Insurance companies will do everything in their power to give you less compensation than you deserve, and personal injury lawyers are skilled in negotiations and representing clients in court when needed.
What Should I Say to an Insurance Claims Adjuster?
The best course of action is to let a personal injury attorney negotiate with the insurance claims adjuster to ensure that you’re not taken advantage of. If you do speak to an insurance claims adjuster, say as little as possible and don’t admit fault.
A Family Member Was Injured in an Accident. Can I File a Lawsuit?
Generally, yes. If a family member is seriously injured or killed in an accident, or if the injured party is a minor, then a parent, spouse, relative, or legal guardian can file a claim on their behalf.
After an Accident, How Do My Medical Expenses and Other Damages Get Paid?
An insurance company will not pay medical expenses or other damages right away. If they’ve accepted liability, they will make one lump-sum final payment at the end of your case.
How Long is the Case Process?
It depends on your case. Most cases settle within 7-10 months from the date of the accident, but it could be shorter or longer, depending on the circumstances of your accident. If you don’t settle, it can take years in court.
