Navigating Insurance After a Car Accident in Texas

Typically, one of the first calls that a person makes after a car accident in Texas is to an insurance company. That can be a tricky step, as there are many different insurance companies and policies, including uninsured motorist coverage. Even if the driver who hit you does not have insurance, your own insurance company should offer you some protection against medical bills, car repairs, and more. That is why you pay them!
