How Common Are Car Accidents?

The statistics about car accidents are alarming. On average, there are about 6 million accidents that occur each year in the United States. Accidents are a leading cause of injury, and WHO reports that two road traffic deaths occur per minute. Car crashes and the injuries caused by them will likely impact your or a loved one’s life. If you have been involved in one of these accidents, our lawyers will fight to protect your interests.

What Should I Do After a Car Accident in Connecticut?

One of the most important things you should do after being involved in an automobile accident is preserve any and all evidence that may be available to you. You should not hesitate to take pictures, go to the doctor or hospital, obtain the police report, obtain names of witnesses, and contact an attorney. An attorney can assist you in preserving and obtaining any potential evidence. Without immediate action, much of the evidence you will need to prove your claim can be lost.

After a car accident, be sure to do the following:

  • Obtain contact information: If there were any witnesses to the accident, be sure to get their contact information. Their testimony could be extremely valuable in your personal injury
  • Seek medical attention: Even if the accident does not seem serious and you feel no immediate physical signs of injury, it is important to seek the opinion of a licensed medical care provider because some injuries remain latent at first and develop into more serious problems later.
  • Do not give a statement to an insurance company: Insurance companies often get accident victims to make subtle admissions and statements that can hurt their claims. Do not speak with the other driver’s insurance company or your own insurance company until you have consulted with an attorney.

What if I Receive a Ticket?

If you were ticketed for a moving violation (this does not include failure to have registration or insurance), do not plead guilty or pay the fine before speaking with a lawyer. Even in cases where the police ticket you, a qualified lawyer may be able to take your bodily injury case.

What Is the Statute of Limitations for Filing a Car Accident Claim in Connecticut?

Connecticut’s statute of limitations for filing a car accident claim is generally two years from the date of the accident. However, consulting with a legal professional is crucial to understanding specific deadlines and requirements that may apply to your case.

Do I Need to Report a Car Accident to the Police in Connecticut?

Yes, in Connecticut, you must report a car accident to the police if it results in injury, death, or property damage exceeding $1,000. To comply with legal requirements, report the accident promptly to the nearest police station or law enforcement agency.

How Does Fault Affect Car Accident Claims in Connecticut?

Connecticut follows a modified comparative fault rule for car accident claims. If you are found partially at fault for the accident, your compensation may be reduced proportionally to your degree of fault. However, you may not be eligible for compensation if you are deemed more than 50 percent at fault.

Can I Pursue Compensation for Car Accident Injuries in Connecticut?

Yes, if you have been injured in a car accident due to someone else’s negligence, you may be entitled to compensation for medical expenses, lost wages, pain and suffering, and other damages. Consult an attorney in Connecticut to evaluate your case and pursue the appropriate legal action.

How Does Insurance Coverage Work for Car Accidents in Connecticut?

Connecticut requires drivers to carry liability insurance coverage for bodily injury and property damage. The minimum coverage limits are $25,000 for bodily injury per person, $50,000 for bodily injury per accident, and $25,000 for property damage per accident. Additional coverage options, such as uninsured/underinsured motorist coverage, may also be available.

How Can a Lawyer Help After a Car Accident in Connecticut?
