Arlington specifically, and Tarrant County generally, has experienced many positive changes in recent years due to economic growth of the area, the influx of multinational corporations, and the revitalization of sporting and entertainment venues in the mid-cities. However, with this growth has come very serious consequences to the city’s roadways. Necessary infrastructure improvement has resulted in the outcropping of construction sites all over the city. Constantly rerouted lanes, poor surface maintenance, and confusing temporary signage result in dangerous driving conditions for drivers who have their attention divided and diverted by these chaotic conditions.
When you are involved in an accident, having an expert attorney to assess the situation, including damage to property, personal injury, liability of parties involved, and other extenuating circumstances can make all the difference in a fair settlement. If you have been hurt in a car accident, be sure your interests are well protected.

What to do First
If injuries on the scene are severe, be sure to involve the property authorities. Calling 911 for emergency police, ambulance or fire response can be critical to saving lives and preventing further injury.
After emergency professionals have been engaged as needed, be sure to carefully cooperate and comply with their instructions. When it is safe to do so, and as much as possible, before departing the scene of the accident use the following list to gather important information about the event:
Personal ID’s – owner, drivers, passengers, witnesses
Property ID’s – plate numbers, insurance info, registration info, location info
Photograph – take pictures of the vehicles involved, the accident site and the damage
Police – for emergencies call 911, for Arlington Police call (817) 459-5700 and cooperate with the operator, carefully following his or her instructions. When emergency personnel arrive, cooperate fully with their instructions as they generate an accident report.
Proceed – Take care departing the scene! Follow the instructions provided to you by emergency professionals. Gather the police report information when available. Call Lion Law(link) for legal assistance and representation.
Protect – Protect your rights and interests by calling Thompson Law (844) 308-8180 as soon as you are able following the accident.
