Car Accident Cases in Connecticut

You cannot predict a car accident. You can try to be careful and drive defensively. Follow all the traffic rules and avoid being reckless on the road. The problem is you cannot control the other factors on the open road, including how other people drive.

It only takes a moment of negligence to cause a catastrophic accident. Something as simple as not stopping at an intersection can cause significant injuries or worse.

Common Types of Car Accidents

The common types of car accidents that happen in Connecticut include:

  • Collisions at an intersection
  • Accidents caused by drunk driving
  • Hit-and-run incidents
  • Rear-ending another vehicle
  • Rideshare accidents

That is not a comprehensive list. There are other types of accidents that can occur.

If you find yourself in this situation, take care of your health first. Find medical attention as quickly as possible to treat potential injuries. Getting treated creates official documentation of what happened to you.

Common Injuries From Car Accidents

The injuries suffered in a car accident vary, depending on the type of accident and the nature of the impact. In many cases, someone involved in a car accident would sustain the following injuries:

  • Head and neck trauma
  • Injuries to muscles and tendons
  • Concussions
  • Whiplash
  • Fractures and bruises
  • Skin cuts and abrasions
  • Spinal injury
  • Traumatic brain injury
  • Other catastrophic injuries

If you need help with a car accident case, contact The Doctor Lawyer Team. Then discuss your legal options with a competent Connecticut car accident lawyer.

Worth of a Car Accident Case

Every situation is different when it comes to car accidents. You have to consider factors both in and out of your control. That is the best way to determine the true worth of the accident case and what you need to look for as compensation.

Here are the common things assessed to determine the worth of a car accident case.

The severity of the injuries you sustained is the first thing insurance companies and lawyers will look at. They will review the type of treatment you need, how long it will take to recover, and whether there are permanent damages.

Related medical bills include prescription medication or diagnosis by a doctor. Any amount you pay because of injuries sustained is factored in.

Car accidents can cause you to lose income because of injuries you sustained. Sometimes you have to take time off to deal with the situation. Some people can also suffer post-traumatic stress disorder because of what happened, leading to emotional suffering. There is a chance your claim will cover that.

Your insurance usually covers property damage. If it is not enough, there is a chance that the claim will cover the rest.

Proving the Cause of a Car Accident

In making a claim, you have to prove the other driver caused the accident. While both of you can be at fault, the only goal is to show that the other party played a bigger role in the incident.

Negligent actions causing a car accident include:

  • Driving while under the influence of alcohol or drugs
  • Driving distracted (like texting on your phone)
  • Vehicle maintenance issues due to negligence
  • Not following traffic laws and regulations
  • Reckless and aggressive driving

If you were involved in a car accident, do not hesitate to contact The Doctor Lawyer Team for a consultation. Our Connecticut car accident lawyer is ready to assist you.

Speaking With an Insurance Company

When the other driver's insurance provider reaches out to you, they will seem friendly and approachable. But remember, they are not there to serve your needs. Their job is to find ways to minimize compensation paid to you or avoid paying you altogether.

If the insurance company insists on speaking with you, consult our Connecticut car accident lawyer first. That way, you know what to say and what to avoid. If things get complicated, you can direct them to your attorney.

Do You Need a Car Accident Lawyer?

Having a car accident lawyer can help your case. There have been instances where a fender-bender turned into a lawsuit. It becomes a bigger problem if the insurance company does not compensate you fairly.

The legal process involved in every detail of a car accident can be overwhelming. You need to communicate with different people, organize your documents, and coordinate everything. That can be daunting, especially if it is your first time managing all of these tasks.

You technically do not have to hire a car accident lawyer, but it is advisable. The Doctor Lawyer Team is ready to hear from you. Give us a call to schedule a consultation with our Connecticut car accident lawyer.
