Holiday Car Wrecks and How A DFW Lawyer can help
Though the holidays are meant to be the happiest time of the year, it is unfortunately the case that Christmas and Thanksgiving are one of the most stressful times of year for a great many people. It's also a time of year when people are attending more parties and making the decision to drink and drive more frequently. The combination of these factors—among others—can result in an increased number of traffic accidents. Nobody wants to deal with a car crash injury over the holidays. But if you find yourself in a car collision over the holidays, speaking with a car wreck lawyer can be invaluable to figuring out the best path forward. Fortunately, we serve the Dallas / Fort Worth Metroplex in situations just like these.

Injuries After A Car Wreck
We tend to try and convince ourselves that everything is fine and that we're alright. However, injuries can arise immediately, they can take hours, they can take days to arise, and they can even show up after a week or a few weeks. When symptoms arise after a car wreck, it's important to take them seriously.
As experienced car accident lawyers in the Dallas / Fort Worth Metroplex, we have seen numerous cases where victims of car crashes thought they were completely fine and drove themselves away from the scene of the crash—but when they got home, serious symptoms came to light. Part of this is attributable to the adrenaline rush we experience during traumatic events like car wrecks, and another part of it is just the nature of certain injuries. For example, some head injuries are immediately noticeable, while other head injuries—like certain types of traumatic brain injuries—come on slowly and get worse and worse.
When victims of car crashes come to see us, we generally advise them to see a doctor if they are having concerning symptoms. If you are injured in a wreck, a DFW personal injury attorney should advise you that the sooner you seek treatment for your injuries the better. This is because the more time you allow to pass between the car crash and the associated injury, the more opportunity you provide the insurance company and/or the at-fault party to argue that your symptoms were caused by something else—by something other than their negligence.
Talking With A Dallas-Fort Worth Car Accident Lawyer
Talking with a personal injury lawyer can be feel intimidating—but it does not have to be. Personal injury attorneys are there for you—we are here to help you wade through a complicated and trying situation, and we are here to help you find a solution to get back on your feet.
Once you open a claim with the at-fault party's insurance company, they are likely to call you and try to get you to settle as soon as possible after the incident. This is because they do not want to allow for time for you to get a full understanding of the extent of your injuries. But you need to know: once your case is settled, there's no going back and saying, “actually, I'm hurt worse than I realized”—once it's settled, it's over. It is for this reason that the car accident lawyers at Glenn Law Firm advise clients us to let us put the insurance company on notice that we are representing them; we then allow our clients to treat with their doctors while we gather all the information and documentation needed to build the strongest case we can for them.
