When should you seek legal advice after a car accident?

Car accidents.png

If you've recently been in a car accident, you might be wondering, "Do I need a lawyer?" An experienced lawyer who has handled CT car accident cases will be able to guide you through the sometimes-confusing steps of getting you the protection and compensation you deserve. Even if you aren't suing an individual for causing an accident, you might still need a lawyer to get the proper coverage from any insurance companies involved.

If any of the items below are a factor in your automotive accident, you may need a lawyer:

1. Injury: If you sustain a injury in a car accident, you'll want to retain an attorney. A serious injury may include hospitalization, broken bones or injuries that appear likely to become chronic conditions.

2. Death: Anytime there is a death related to a car accident that you are a party to - whether as the driver or if the deceased is a family member - you'll want to contact an attorney.

3. Negligence: If there is evidence of negligence on the part of a driver involved in an accident, it's a good idea to contact an attorney to help you determine your legal rights.

4. Construction Zone: An area on a roadway designated as a construction zone has special rules and laws. As a result, if you are involved in an accident within a construction zone, you should reach out to an attorney.

5. Insurance Issues: There are many scenarios where insurance can prompt the need for legal representation. For example, if a driver involved in the accident lacks insurance, that's a situation where an attorney is required. Also, if an insurance company is refusing to compensate you for medical care, you could use a lawyer to help you negotiate.

The above list offers just some of the reasons why you might need a lawyer after a car accident in Connecticut. Even if you are simply confused following a motor vehicle accident, you can still contact a lawyer to see if he or she can help.
