We meet with a lot of residents of San Antonio following car crashes that just have a lot of questions. As an injury law firm, injured car crash victims usually turn to us for answers. In this episode, I try to line out some of the most common questions we get in San Antonio from those injured in car crashes.
Justin Hill: Welcome to Hill Law Firm Cases, a podcast discussing real-world cases handled by Justin Hill and the Hill Law Firm. For confidentiality reasons, names and amounts of any settlements have been removed. However, the facts are real and these are the cases we handle on a day to day basis.
Justin Hill: On Hill Law Firm Cases podcast, we’re going to do a series of questions and commonly repeated inquiries we get regarding car crash cases in San Antonio. We end up discussing potential cases with way more clients than we ever sign and then we ever represent. A lot of people we meet with just want some answers. A lot of people we meet with don’t have a case and I have to tell a lot of people that come and meet with us that not every wrong has a right under the law and that not every case is provable or is a case for the courts.
We’re a personal injury law firm and so we don’t represent people that have a $500 property damage claim to their bumper and we have to explain that to them as well. What we do get are a lot of common questions. There’s a lot of common questions regarding car crash cases in San Antonio that we deal with regularly. In this series, in Hill Law Firm Cases regarding car crash questions, we’re going to try to address those.
Some of the questions that we get include, “What should I do after a car crash? Should I take pictures? Should I move my car to the side of the road? Should I go see a doctor after a car crash? When should I call 911 if I’ve been in a car crash?”
Some of the other things we hear are about insurance companies. “Should I call my insurance company following a car crash? Should I talk to their insurance company after a car crash?” We get asked a lot, “What interaction should I have with the other driver? Should we exchange information? Should we share phone numbers? Should we share our insurance information?”
Then oftentimes we get asked questions regarding evidence. “Should I take pictures and what pictures should I take? Of the car crash scene, of the vehicles involved or the intersection, and should I get witness information? Should I take down their phone numbers?”
There’s a lot of common questions that arise out of a car crash. In San Antonio, it’s very, very normal for us to sit down with people and hear those same questions. The point of this series on Hill Law Firm Cases podcast is to discuss those questions in a general sense. Every case is different. Every fact scenario will have a more specific answer, but to the best of our ability, we’re going to answer these general questions and try to provide guidance to people that have been in car crashes in San Antonio.
