Causes of Motor Vehicle Collisions
The overwhelming majority of car accidents are caused by human error, and are therefore preventable. Factors that may have been involved in your accident include:
- Driver negligence
- Driving while texting
- Impaired Driving/DUI
- Distracted Driving
- Aggressive Driving/Road Rage
- Poor Road Conditions
- Automotive Defects
If you were seriously injured due to another driver's negligence, carelessness or reckless behavior, you are legally entitled to claim compensation.
Steps to Take After a Car Accident
A car accident can leave you in a state of shock and confusion, and people often go through a range of emotions. If there were any serious injuries, call 911 immediately. If you have just been in an accident in Connecticut, follow these steps:
- Call 911: Call for emergency services and wait for them to arrive. If anyone appears unconscious or seriously injured, do not attempt to move them, as you may injure them further.
- Speak with witnesses: Look around the area and ask if anyone saw the accident. See if you can get their contact information and get them to provide a statement. They may have been able to see something that neither driver did on their own.
- Take Photos: Capture images of the accident so you can recall the details of how exactly the accident occurred. Take pictures of the vehicles, the streets, skid marks, injuries and surrounding areas.
- Get a police report: When police arrive, offer them as many details as possible. Make sure to ask for a copy of the report or where you can obtain one.
Following these steps is not a legal requirement for you to recoup damages, but it will help your car accident lawyer if liability is disputed.
