What to do After a Car Wreck
There are a few things you need to do after an auto accident:
- Don’t leave the scene: Stop the car and make sure you’re safe. Never drive away from the scene of a crash.
- Safety First: Once you’re safe, call the police. The police report is beneficial in determining fault, and as official documentation of the accident.
- Get Accurate Record: You also want to make an accurate record of the accident if possible. Which means taking lots of pictures and exchanging information with the other driver. If there are any witnesses, try to get their contact information.
- Accurate Statements: We recommend that you do not give a recorded statement to the adverse insurance company, but if you do you may want to seek a free consultation with a qualified personal injury lawyer before giving the account. The truth is that volunteering information to the other guy’s insurer can and will be used against you.
- Medical Attention: If you are injured, seek immediate medical care. It is also prevalent that some symptoms are often unnoticed until days after the accident, it’s essential to find medical attention by visiting an emergency room or your doctor. Internal injuries left untreated could have lingering consequences, including cognitive impairment and behavioral changes.
- Contact our Law Firm: It’s essential to get the best legal representation from the beginning. Our law firm can advise you as to the right course of action, and we can begin to gather all the necessary documents to help you fight for your rights.
- Handling Insurance Calls: Insurance companies may record your phone call, and even innocent statements could be used against you. The best course of action is not to talk to the insurance company until you speak to your attorney. Please don’t fall victim to signing quick settlement offers, which make it practically impossible to recuperate the amount you’re entitled.
Car accidents are widespread and often life-altering. In Texas alone, there is a reportable traffic collision every 57 seconds, an injury every 1 minute and 59 seconds and a fatality every 2 hours and 20 minutes. Many of these accidents happen on US 290 between Brenham and Cypress. It’s important to stay vigilant and drive carefully, but often car accidents happen without warning, and it’s crucial to receive the best medical care and legal representation.
18-Wheeler Semi-Truck Accidents
There are over 500,000 accidents involving 18-wheeler trucks and over 5,000 fatalities. The clear majority of these injuries and deaths are sustained by people driving the car and not the drivers of the 18-wheeler.
18-wheeler accidents on US 290 in Cypress are common.
Truck drivers are under much pressure to deliver the cargo and are often fatigued, despite laws mandating a certain amount of rest between driving hours. Some reports indicate that as many as 20% of drivers have reported falling asleep at the wheel at one point. Because of the massive size and weight of these 18-wheelers, accidents involving them typically result in serious injury.
Baumgartner Law Firm has spent decades fighting for the rights of people hurt in 18-wheeler wrecks. We know how the insurance peculiarities of the claims process for these types of accidents and we have a proven track record of fighting and winning significant 18-wheeler accident settlements for our clients.
Drunk Driving Injury Accidents
According to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration, there are over 10,000 fatalities due to drunk driving. The estimated economic cost of alcohol-impaired crashes is more than $44 billion. In Texas alone, there are over 17,000 drunk driving fatalities.
Nothing is more traumatic and infuriating than being the victim of a completely preventable accident. If a drunk driver has injured you, you have rights such as rights to full and fair compensation, including pain and suffering and possibly punitive damages.
The state of Texas is cracking down on drunk drivers with more resources and stricter penalties, but we still see too many cases of drunk driving injury accidents happen every single day in Cypress alone.

Every day, millions of Texans entrust their kids to daycare facilities. Though these facilities are regulated, the regulation is often inadequate, and thousands of injuries happen every single month. Most of these injuries are not intentional, but rather a result of negligence like failing to supervise adequately. Injuries range from minor injuries, such as bruises and scrapes, to severe ones, such as broken bones and we have even handled wrongful death cases due to daycare negligence.
Any injury due to negligence, including inattentiveness and irresponsibility, is often the caretaker’s responsibility.
Our children are our most significant treasures, and any injury to them can be devastating. If your child was injured in a daycare, and you suspect it was due to negligence or bad practices by the daycare, you may be entitled to compensation. Our law firm has been helping injured children for over 35 years and has handled much of the most high-profile daycare injury cases in the Houston area.
Unlike broken bones, which can often mend well, brain injuries are a catastrophic injury and victims often never fully recover. Brain cells cannot regenerate and once they’re damaged the connection between them remains broken. Even worse, these brain injuries could have a dramatic effect on cognition and could permanently alter personality.
If you’ve been involved in an accident, such as a car accident or motorcycle accident, you may have suffered a brain injury without it being apparent for weeks. Of course, brain injuries could happen in many other settings, such as falling downstairs, or work-related accidents.
Brain injuries are particularly tricky to handle legally. They require specialized expertise in the matter and years of experience.
Construction Site Accidents
Construction is a dangerous profession. More than 20% of all work-related fatalities happen while working in the construction industry. Though this industry is heavily regulated by the federal Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA), there are so many dangers inherent with the sector that eliminating accidents is practically impossible. Moreover, those regulations set forth by OSHA are always changing and expanding. Honest employers have a hard time often following all these regulations, and many others ignore or cut corners doing a dangerous job so much more so.
If you’re injured in a construction accident, it is likely that more than one party was involved, and proper evaluation is needed to determine liability and cause. The firm has been helping clients involved in construction accidents for decades and has the right toolkit to gather the necessary facts, determine the cause of action and recuperate damages and compensation for our clients. The complexities of these types of cases require unique knowhow; knowhow that takes years to acquire. If you’ve been injured in a construction accident, call our offices to set-up a free consultation.
Boating or Jet Ski Accidents
Texas is blessed to have great weather and lots of waterways to enjoy aquatic activities, including boating and jet skis. Unfortunately, while enjoying these activities, many people forget the dangers of boats and jet skis. They fail to acknowledge that these vehicles can often be more dangerous than a car.
There are over 600,000 registered boats in the state of Texas. Most boat owners are responsible, but with so many vessels moving around thousands of boating accidents happen every year. When you add sun, alcohol, and disregard for safety to a vehicle of any type, there is bound to be injuries or fatal boating accidents.
