After you’ve been in a car accident, the first thing you should do is attend to any injuries you may have suffered as the result of the accident. After that, you will need to concern yourself with the process of filing a claim with your insurance company. Here are some tips on how to navigate the insurance claim process...

Research tells us that two out of three people will become involved in an injury accident at least once in their lives.

Accident Victims: Don’t Sign Release Forms Without Consulting With a Personal Injury AttorneyIf you have been a victim of a car accident in Texas, you will likely receive a number of forms from the auto insurance carrier that you will be asked to sign. These could include:

  1. Medical Authorization-- allows the insurance company to have access to your medical records. Depending on how the authorization is written, it could provide authorization for information on your medical treatment in connection with the accident as well as prior medical records.
  2. Wage Loss and Salary Verification/Authorization -- gives the insurance company access to your wage and salary information, which is used in case of wage loss claims.
  3. Property Damage Release – gives the insurance company access to information to determine the value of a vehicle that has been declared a total loss.
  4. General Release – this document is generally used when an insurer wants you to waive all claims against the driver or owner of the car who was at fault in the accident, as well as the insurance company.

You can protect yourself and your potential injury claims by doing one important thing: DON’T sign any document without talking to an experienced Texas personal injury attorney! Too many injury victims unknowingly sign their rights away, so don’t let this happen to you.
