It is also important to seek medical attention. This is true even when you do not think you were hurt as you may have sustained an injury that does not involve immediate symptoms.

Try to gather evidence at the scene of the crash yourself or ask somebody to do it for you if you need medical attention. Evidence can include photographs of your accident scene from varying angles and distances, eyewitness contact information, and your own medical records after a hospital visit.

Do not contact the other party’s insurance company but report your accident to your own insurer. Then contact a Houston Amazon truck accident attorney so you can get help dealing with all of the insurance companies and other requirements involved in recovering financial compensation.
