We Will Seek Out All Possible Evidence to Support Your Claim
You cannot file a claim for compensation until you have laid out how you suffered your damages. We will help you do this. At the scene, you might see smoke coming out of your hood and remember that you were due for a tune-up, thinking that you were at fault for panicking at the smoke and rear-ending the car in front of you. However, you might never have hit another driver without a defective part in your engine that caused the smoke.
Let your team search for all available evidence that shows that you are eligible to collect compensation from negligent car parts manufacturers. Information that might be relevant to your case can include:
- Video of the accident captured by traffic cameras
- Photos you took of the damage to all vehicles involved in the accident
- Documents from your last tune-up that do not note anything wrong with your vehicle
- Receipts from your medical care
- Eyewitness testimony
- A written account of what you can remember from the accident

What to Do After Your Accident to Protect Your Case
There are many ways that you can set yourself up for a less stressful road to compensation. Start by reporting that accident to the police (if no one at the scene called emergency services). This is because, under Texas Transportation Code §550.062, you have to file a report within ten days if there was damage to an individual or vehicle in an accident.
Your Plano defective design or manufacture of vehicles or vehicle components accident lawyer can help you obtain this report to utilize in your case.
See Your Doctor as Directed
After you are safe, visit a medical professional for a checkup or diagnosis. This is a very important part of the insurance claim process. You need to have proof that you were injured. Medical records can affirm your injuries and connect them to the specific accident.
So, it is important to visit the doctor or emergency room as soon as you can after the accident. This prevents the insurance company from trying to assert that your injuries were due to another circumstance.
Don’t Post About the Accident on Social Media
It is important to stay off social media while your case is ongoing. The insurance company might notice that you posted a photo of yourself out with friends (and utilizing pain medication for your injuries) and claim that you couldn’t possibly be in pain if you are out and about. Do not give them this chance. Wait until you have a settlement or judgment to share.
