Auto Accident Cases in Connecticut

No one goes out thinking they are getting into an auto accident today. Your obligation as a driver is to stay in control of your vehicle and follow the rules to avoid crashing into another car, motorcyclist, or pedestrian.

Unfortunately, there are drivers who forget this obligation. Doing so even for just one second can lead to an auto accident.

Being involved in a crash can have several repercussions, including physical pain and emotional stress, not to mention having to deal with medical bills and other unforeseen expenses. That is why you need support in making an auto accident claim.

Making an Auto Accident Claim

Each auto accident claim has unique facts and issues. An auto accident lawyer looks at these pieces of information to build a case in your favor by highlighting the at-fault driver. Doing so can help you make a claim with the insurance company.

However, not all auto accidents have straightforward facts. Sometimes, the case requires intensive medical, forensic, and scientific research to conclude the cause of the accident.

The Doctor Lawyer Team is here to help you with your auto accident case. Contact us to book a free consultation.

Common Injuries From Auto Accidents

Auto accidents can lead to various physical injuries, alongside pain and suffering. While you can recover quickly from some injuries, others are more serious and could lead to permanent disability. Common injuries you may suffer from an auto accident include:

  • Scrapes, cuts, and bruises
  • Soft tissue injuries
  • Head and neck trauma
  • Broken or fractured bones
  • Back and spinal cord injuries
  • Traumatic brain injury
  • Other catastrophic injuries

What to Do After an Auto Accident

Following an accident, there are several steps you can take to deal with your injuries and ensure your claim goes smoothly. These steps will help you, whether you make an insurance claim or take legal action against the at-fault driver.

  1. Get medical attention as soon as you can to take care of injuries. This also documents your condition after the accident.
  2. Help other people involved in the crash if you can.
  3. Take photos of the scene, including injuries and damages to property.
  4. Exchange information with all other people involved in the accident.
  5. Save all the documents and information you gather. This will be useful later.

Remember: Health comes first. If you feel you are in no condition to follow these five steps, wait for help. Do not force yourself to move if you are in too much pain to take photos.

Proving The Driver’s Negligence

Your main goal is to prove the negligence of another driver who caused the accident. Connecticut is an at-fault state. That means you can prove another person was responsible for the injuries and damages to claim compensation. Instead of filing a claim with your insurance, you will be requesting it from their provider.

The state follows the rule of comparative negligence, meaning both drivers can be at fault for the accident if they did something to contribute to it. Your point here is to prove the other driver did more to cause the accident.

Examples of driver negligence include:

  • Distracted driving
  • Speeding
  • Driving under the influence
  • Unlawful passing
  • Violation of traffic laws
  • Reckless driving
