Holidays are meant to be a time for celebrations, giving and spending time with loved ones. There are many hazards such as dangerous motor vehicle accidents, slips at stores, falls off ladders and home fires that occur during the holiday season.

It is important for you to know the steps to take immediately after a holiday accident which can significantly help your case. Following an accident you should:

  • Call emergency services and get medical attention.
  • File a police report.
  • Contact your insurers.
  • Take photographs of the scene of the accident or obtain video footage of the accident occurring.
  • Obtain witness statements from anybody who saw the accident happen. This could include friends or family who were with you at the time, but independent witnesses add more credibility to a claim.
  • In case of a motor vehicle accident, you should obtain the other driver’s details.
  • Do not admit fault.
  • Keep a record of medical expenses.
  • Contact an experienced Houston personal injury attorney.

If you are seriously injured, seek medical attentions as quickly as possible. But if you have a choice, consider waiting until the morning after a holiday or for a few days more.
