Providing Comprehensive Personal Injury Representation in East Hartford, CT
Car crashes happen every day in our region. The Connecticut Department of Transportation reports that there is an average of 111,776 traffic collisions reported in the state each year. Collectively, these accidents result in an average of 36,793 injuries and 287 fatalities. Even the safest and most skilled of drivers needs to be ready to protect their health, well-being, and legal rights after a serious accident. Here are four key things to know about motor vehicle accidents claims in Connecticut:
- Most Collisions Should Be Reported: In Connecticut, all crashes that result in significant property damage or any physical injury should be reported to the police. Make sure your accident is properly reported—especially if it was not your fault.
- Two-Year Statute of Limitations: There is a two-year statute of limitations for car accident injury claims in Connecticut. Under Connecticut General Statutes § 52-555, you must initiate the claims process within two years of a wreck. If you don’t, you may lose your right to get compensation.
- Connecticut is a Fault-Based Insurance State: Unlike some other states (including New York), Connecticut is a fault-based auto accident jurisdiction. The driver, truck company, or other party deemed at fault for a crash is liable for the resulting damages.
- A Comparative Negligence Standard of Liability: In some cases, multiple parties contribute to the same collision. Connecticut uses a comparative negligence standard of liability. In other words, each party to an accident is legally responsible for their proportionate share of their fault.
