Should I Get a Lawyer for a Minor Car Accident?
Many people involved in “minor” car accidents wonder — perhaps skeptically — whether they need legal representation. At the end of the day, it is up to you whether your case is handled with or without the benefit of an experienced attorney looking after the details and making sure your rights are protected. However, hiring a reputable car accident attorney will significantly increase your chances of securing compensation for your injuries and other losses.
Even a relatively simple car accident case can benefit from the attention of an experienced lawyer. For example, though a rear-end collision at a stop sign might seem like a minor accident, it can result in whiplash, concussions, broken bones, and many other serious injuries. In many cases, these injuries will require long-term medical treatment and physical therapy. Meanwhile, you may be left paying for costly medical bills and unable to work due to your injuries.
Ultimately, there is little downside to consulting with an experienced personal injury attorney. At Fleming Law, we offer 100% free initial consultations — you pay nothing unless we win your case. Our attorneys can evaluate your case, explain your legal options, and identify all potential sources of compensation to maximize your financial relief. A simple phone call can make sure you are off to a good start on the road to compensation. Call us today.

How Long Do I Have to File a Car Accident Lawsuit in Texas?
All personal injury cases are governed by a statute of limitations. This law sets a deadline after which you may no longer file a case seeking compensation for your injuries in court. In Texas, the deadline for personal injury cases is set at two years from the date of the accident.
This deadline is strictly enforced. If you do not file your case before it passes, it will likely be dismissed, and you will miss your opportunity to seek compensation in court. Therefore, it is crucial that you speak to a lawyer as soon as possible after a car accident so they can get started on your case right away. The attorneys at Fleming Law are a phone call away and ready to evaluate your case.
What Should I Do After a Car Accident?
Understandably, many of our clients arrive at our office frustrated and disoriented after going through a car accident. If you have been in an accident and feel this way too, there are some proactive steps you can take to protect your right to compensation. Consider taking the following steps:
- Exchange information – Identify all drivers involved in the crash. Collect their names, contact information, driver’s license numbers, license plate numbers, insurer names, and policy numbers. Also, identify any witnesses present at the scene and collect their contact information as well.
- Gather evidence – If possible, you should visually document the scene of the accident. Using your phone, take pictures and videos of your injuries, damaged vehicles, weather conditions, road conditions, signs of impaired driving, and surveillance cameras that may have captured the moment of the accident.
- Seek medical attention – See a doctor as soon as possible after a crash. Of course, some accidents are life-threatening and demand immediate medical attention. However, some injuries do not appear until some time has passed after the accident. These “latent” injuries can be as serious as those that appear immediately and should also be diagnosed and treated by a doctor.
- Be candid with your doctor – Your doctors will document your injuries and treatment. These records will later be used to prove the extent of your injuries, pain, and suffering. In turn, this will be used to calculate your compensation. Therefore, it is very important that you do not leave anything out. Even minor injuries will ultimately translate to compensation.
- Keep a pain journal – Keep a daily journal of the physical and emotional pain you experience because of your injuries. This can help illustrate the true impact the accident has on your life, as well as help your attorney explain your pain and suffering at the negotiation table and in court.
- Avoid posting on social media – Insurance adjusters may scour your social media for evidence that could invalidate your claims. Therefore, be cautious about what you share. Anything you say can be used against you.
- Contact an attorney – Speak to an experienced personal injury attorney as soon as possible after your accident. When dealing with insurers, do not give recorded statements, admit fault, or accept any settlement offers before obtaining legal representation.
