What Do I Do After A Car Crash?

Injured in a car accident in Connecticut? Here are the steps you should immediately take:

  • Call the police — You should immediately call 911 after the accident.
  • Seek treatment right away if you think there is anything wrong — It is advisable to seek medical treatment even if you do not think you are seriously injured. Certain injuries may not produce symptoms right away.
  • Exchange information — Exchange contact information with other drivers and any accident witnesses. Make sure to document phone numbers, email addresses, insurance information, license plate numbers, etc.
  • Contact qualified legal representation — You should contact a personal injury lawyer as soon as possible following your accident. Please call our law office at  860-659-0700 or toll-free at  877-783-5367.
  • Do not have the adjuster sign off on anything — Insurance adjusters will attempt to have you sign off on your claims very soon after your accident. Do not sign anything without first talking to a lawyer.
  • Take photos — If you have a camera or a smartphone, take photos of the accident scene from every possible angle and perspective.
  • Contact legal before providing any statements — Before you make any statement to your insurance company or the police about culpability, please talk to a lawyer from our firm. An investigation will determine potential multiple factors that contributed to your accident’s cause.
