Can I Sue if the Police Didn’t Respond to the Accident?

Yes.  Just because the police did not respond to the scene of the accident doesn’t mean that you don’t have a personal injury claim.  Oftentimes, the police will not respond unless the accident is significant or there aren’t any serious injuries.  That being said, many people are in fact injured in these types of accidents everyday.  You should always seek medical attention after an accident.  Many injuries do not surface for a day or two following the accident, so it is always a good idea to seek medical attention as soon as you can.

Obviously, you want to obtain the other driver’s contact information, driver’s license number, license plate number and insurance information before you leave the scene.  It’s also a good idea to take pictures of the vehicles involved.  Finally, you should consult with a Dallas personal injury lawyer so that your rights can be protected.
