Important Steps To Take To Protect Yourself Auto-Pedestrian Accident
At Joel A. Gordon & Associates, one of our goals is to provide vital information as well as tailored legal representation and solutions to all of our clients. If you have been hit by a car in Houston, there are several things you will need to do to protect yourself physically and financially.
Tips You Should Follow if You Were Hit by a Car
First, immediately following your car accident, you should try to gather as much information as possible from the accident scene and anyone who may have witnessed your collision. If people saw you get hit by a car, gather the names, phone numbers and addresses of these witnesses for future reference.
You should also contact the local police and, if possible, wait for the police to arrive to complete their investigation. If the situation dictates that the police are not necessary, then make sure to obtain the driver’s name, phone number, address, license plate number and name of the driver’s insurance company.
If possible, it can be judicious to take pictures with a cell phone so that images of the event are available should you move forward with an auto-pedestrian claim.

Next, you need to see a doctor. People sometimes make the mistake of refusing to get medical attention and treatment. However, such a decision usually can hurt your personal injury case. This is because you will need medical records to document the injuries you have suffered from being struck by the vehicle.
If you receive treatment from a physician, the doctor will record the injuries and the prescribed course of treatment. If you decide to take legal action in the future, these medical records will play a great role in your case and the amount of compensation you are able to recover both from the negligent driver’s insurance company and possibly your own insurance company, depending upon the severity of the injuries.
After the accident, set up a free consultation with an experienced auto-pedestrian accident lawyer in our Houston law firm. When you meet with our attorney, it is best to present any paperwork you have relating to this accident so we can fully review your case. We will listen to your perspective and all details about how you were struck by the vehicle, and what injuries you suffered as a result of your accident.
After we have heard your side of the story and reviewed all documentation, our attorneys will educate you regarding your legal rights, your legal options and possible outcome. If you decide that you would like to move forward with a personal injury claim against a negligent third party or an insurance company, our team of litigators will do everything we can to help you get the monetary damages you deserve.

I was very pleased with the outcome of my case. Joel Gordon and his staff were very professional and thorough. Mr. Gordon was always available to answer any questions I had throughout the case and when he was unavailable he returned calls very quickly. I also got great medical attention without having to worry about making upfront payments. I definitely recommend Joel A. Gordon & Associates to anyone who needs his services. Great attorney and staff!
In December 2012 I was in a very bad accident. My mother’s car was totaled and I did not have a lawyer at the time. After the accident I was referred to a lawyer by a friend and the process was very slow and not professional. I dropped that lawyer and hired Mr. Gordon. Mr. Gordon helped my mother get paid for her car and helped close my injury case. The overall experience with Mr. Gordon and his firm was very professional. Everything in my case moved quickly and in an orderly manner.
As populated as our city is..accidents, sometimes are inevitable. It’s during those times, when you need someone you can trust the most. Therefore, for the past 10+ years and the few accidents my family and I have been involved in, we all go to Mr. Joel Gordon. Not only is he professional, but also friendly and compassionate towards your situation and guides with the heart, not the #’s (un-like some out there).?
I was very pleased with the outcome of my case. Joel Gordon was never hard to reach and always had an answer to any question. He did a good job at keeping you updated with anything that went on. He goes out of his way to make sure his client is satisfied. I would definitely recommend him to anyone who has been in an accident.
I am very very pleased with the prompt professional service I received from Mr Gordon recently after being hit by another driver while stopped at a red light. The other driver’s company was stalling and not doing much of anything to get matters settled with my car or health issues, but within 24 hours of calling Mr. Gordon, he got my vehicle settlement for me and made arrangements for me to start getting treatments for my neck and shoulder injuries.
