Auto accidents account for more than 4.4 million personal injuries in the U.S. every year. If you’ve been injured in a car crash, you’ve most likely already spoken to an insurance adjuster from the other insurance company in reference to your auto accident injury. Realize that, in most cases, the only reason they contact you to “help you settle your claim” is to build a defense against you, and offer you as little compensation as possible.

FAQs about Auto Accidents:

1) What should I do if I am involved in an accident?

First and foremost, you should check to see if you or anyone else is seriously injured and call the police for help. You should get the information of everyone involved, including their full name, addresses, phone numbers, license plate numbers, general descriptions of each vehicle, insurance information, and driver’s license information. Try to get as much information as possible to show that you are not liable for the accident, such as photographs of the scene and testimonies from witnesses.

2) Should I remain in the vehicle or get out?

In determining whether you should stay in your vehicle or exit, use your best judgement. Usually, you should exit the car safely to avoid oncoming traffic after being in a car accident. However, you should not do anything that risks your safety. If you are unable to exit the vehicle for any reason, perhaps because of weather conditions that may prohibit you to do so, utilize your blinkers and roadside flares to signal to other cars your location.

3) Should I see a doctor after the accident, even if I do not think I’m seriously injured?

You should definitely visit a doctor after being in any car accident. While you may feel like the injuries are minor or not there, you could have injuries that may become serious if not treated. It’s better to take precautions and take the safe route when dealing with your health.

4) If my car is totaled in an accident, will I get a new one?

Unfortunately, you will not be given a car, but you may be given a rental car while your claim is pending. If you do collect coverage or compensation, you may be able to use that toward buying a new car to replace the one that was totaled.

5) How much compensation am I entitled to?

No two claims are the same. How much you may receive in damages depends on a variety of factors, such as the sum cost of your injuries and car repairs. The effects of an injury also vary from person to person. Once our lawyers get all of the necessary information from you, we will evaluate your case tailored to your needs. We provide personalized representation to our clients and make sure to keep them informed about any updates in their case.

6) How much time to do I have to file a claim?

If you were hurt by a vehicle that is owned or operated by a district or government entity, in many states, there is only a brief period—sometimes less than 60 days—in which a claimant can sue a government body who may be responsible for an accident.

If you are pursuing a personal injury claim that is not against a government body, under Connecticut law, you must file a personal injury or property damage claim within two years of the date of the accident. If someone suffers a wrongful death, the two-year limit starts on the date of the victim’s death from their injuries.

You should reach out to an attorney sooner, rather than later, in order to have plenty of time to build a strong case. Our attorneys are knowledgeable about the entire process, including state, local, and national transportation laws.
