How can a lawyer help me after an auto accident in Connecticut?

An auto accident lawyer can help victims in many ways. After an accident, you would face mountains of paperwork with tight deadlines. You also need to deal with an uncooperative insurance agency that will try to do everything it can to pay as little as possible.

Your auto accident lawyer can manage all that paperwork and build your case for just compensation.

Can I talk to the insurance agent of the other party?

We recommend that victims in an auto accident do not talk to the insurance agent of the other party without legal representation or without at least consulting with an attorney beforehand. The other party will try to get you to agree with terms that are not in your favor.

What happens if I was partially at fault for the accident?

The first thing you have to remember is not to admit any fault right away. An investigation exists to determine fault through examination of the facts of the case. This process will help to reveal to what extent each party was responsible for the accident.

Even if the investigation finds you at fault, you can still be entitled to compensation. Connecticut has a modified comparative fault law. That means if you are below 50% at fault you can recover compensation.

What is my auto accident worth in Connecticut?

In auto accidents, there is no set amount a lawyer will aim to recover for you. Every case is unique, with different variables coming into play for the outcome of the case. Some of the common factors to look at are:

  1. Your injuries
  2. Lost wages and potential income
  3. Damage to property
  4. Pain and suffering
  5. Emotional distress
Will my auto accident case go to court?

Personal injury cases like auto accidents are typically settled out of court. The damages will be agreed upon by all parties involved, without the need for a jury trial.

However, the case is brought to trial if there is no agreement.

What are the laws against texting while driving in Connecticut?

It is illegal to drive while using a device to type and send text messages under Connecticut laws.

How is my auto accident case proven?

To prove your auto accident case, you’ll need:

  • Investigation of the scene
  • Witness interviews
  • Evidence analysis
  • Experts can be brought in to verify claims.
  • Documentation of the injuries and how they affect your life
  • Accident reconstruction
How long should I wait before filing a lawsuit?

You do not have a lot of time to file your lawsuit. Personal injury claims, including auto accidents, have a statute of limitations in Connecticut. You have two years to file your claim.

How will my claim affect my insurance rates?

That will depend on your insurance carrier, but there is a chance that your premium will be higher after a claim. Some companies offer accident forgiveness programs for drivers involved in accidents for the first time.
