If you are in a Houston car accident, make sure to contact the police immediately so that an officer will come to the scene, perform an investigation and put his or her findings into an official crash report. Don’t let the at-fault driver talk you out of it. This is extremely important and can make a big difference when it comes time to handle your claim. Without an objective third party’s findings regarding the crash, the claims process can devolve into a battle of one side’s story vs. the other side’s. Unless there’s a witness or some other evidence that points in your favor and breaks the stalemate, you could find yourself unable to recover for your damages. Don’t leave anything to chance.
