COMMON INJURIES CAUSED BY AUTO ACCIDENTS
Injuries are common in car accidents. Victims of car accidents, whether caused by a head-on collision or a failure to yield the right of way, are rarely completely unharmed.

An experienced auto accident attorney can assist you in sorting through your legal options. The following are some of the most common injuries caused by car accidents:
Traumatic Neck Injuries - The neck is made up of vertebrae, spinal cord, nerves, discs, windpipe, esophagus, muscles, ligaments, tendons, and blood vessels.

BENBROOK CAR ACCIDENT LAWYER CHECKLIST
The following checklist is for people involved in an accident. The list includes things to do if there is an injury involved. It also includes specific resources for people involved in accidents in Benbrook, Texas.
Check if anyone is injured. Make sure you are not hurt worse than you realize. Accidents are traumatic, sudden, and unexpected. The shock of the accident often causes people not to realize the severity of their injury. Next, check on your passengers. Then check on people in the other vehicles involved. If anyone is injured, get help.
Call 911. If anyone is hurt let the dispatcher know. They will send police and paramedics to help. Police will secure the accident scene, help assist injured people until paramedics arrive, and then take the statements of those involved in the accident.
Write down witness contact information. If there are witnesses at the scene of the accident, get their names, phone numbers, email, and anything else they use for contact. The other driver may seem like they are admitting fault, but they may change their story when the police arrive, or when they report it to their insurance company. If this happens you need the witness information.
NOTE: If you are too injured to do anything on this checklist, call a friend or family member to come to the scene and help with the checklist.
Get IDs and insurance information. Exchange your identifying information and auto liability information with all other drivers. Texas law requires anyone involved in an auto accident to exchange this information regardless of who is at fault in the accident. Take photos of the IDs and insurance.
Get pictures of the vehicles involved in the accident. Get photos of the damage to the other vehicles, the points of impact, and the license plate numbers. Get pictures of any skid marks on the ground and any debris on the ground.
Take pictures of the roadway in the direction you were traveling and in the direction you came from. Take pictures of the direction the other drivers were heading and where they came from as well.
Cooperate with the police officer. The officer will write a report on the accident. You want your statement to be in that report. Tell them your side of the story. Let them know if you are hurt, feeling pain, or have any discomfort you did not have before the accident. It will all be listed on the police report.
Benbrook Police Accident Reports: The Benbrook Police Department has their accident reports available online here: Benbrook Police Accident Reports.
Texas DOT Accident Reports: Another place to locate accident reports is through the Texas Department of Transportation. If it has been 2-3 weeks or longer since your accident, the report is likely on this database as well: Texas Department of Transportation Accident Reports
Tell paramedics if injured. Let the paramedics check your condition. They are trained to recognize symptoms and signs that your injury may be worse than you realize. Tell them of any pains or discomfort you have.
Emergency Rooms: If you decide to go to the emergency room on your own, the following emergency rooms are located in the Benbrook area:
- Total Care Emergency Room – 8501 Benbrook Blvd #103, Benbrook, Texas
- Texas Health Harris Methodist Hospital Southwest Fort Worth – 6100 Harris Pkwy, Fort Worth, Texas

The very first thing you need to do to protect your compensation rights is to hire a lawyer that does personal injury cases related to car accidents. Speak to the actual lawyer before hiring them. Do not sign up unless you are able to talk to the lawyer first. The lawyer represents you, not the case manager, so you want to be comfortable that the lawyer will do the job needed to protect your rights and get you the results you need.
Do not talk to any auto insurance companies if you are hurt. If you have been injured, let your lawyer do the talking for you. If you are hurt the insurance adjuster’s job is to try and minimize your claim as much as possible. If they can get you to say something that gets them out of paying at all, they will do so.
Get follow-up care for your injury. If you do not know where to go or do not know how you can afford treatment, the Law Office of Doug Goyen can find medical facilities that can treat you and will defer collecting on their bill until the insurance company releases payments for your injury.
Take pictures of visible injuries. Take photos of bruising, cuts, abrasions, or anything else that is visible. The insurance company will want proof of any injury, and photos of injuries from the accident help.
Get an estimate for the repair of your vehicle. Get your own estimate. The insurance company will write an estimate that is lower than the actual cost to repair your vehicle. They do this because some people do not actually repair their vehicle after an accident and use the money for other expenses they have incurred. This allows the insurance company to save money by paying less than what damage was caused.
If there is a dispute about liability that arises, you need your own estimate to prove the amount of damage that was done.
Body shops often write free estimates – they want your business. Body shops in the Benbrook, Texas area that can write estimates and do repairs for your vehicle include:
Keep copies of bills and receipts. Anything you have had to pay or owe due to the auto accident needs to be reimbursed. Give copies of everything to your lawyer so you get reimbursement for these expenses.
Watch what you post on social media. Assume everything you post will be seen by the adjuster or the insurance company lawyers. They will use anything they can to call your injury into question, so be careful what you post.
