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.

You Need Financial Compensation to Pay Your Bills

Handling Car Accident Claims in East Hartford, Connecticut

Motor vehicle accidents are serious and can have long-lasting effects on you. With injuries requiring surgery, rehabilitation, amputation, stitches, casts, slings, and more, it’s crucial you know your rights if you have been struck by a vehicle. At Tehrani Law Group, we know what it takes to negotiate with insurance companies and other third-parties. Whether you were rear-ended, sideswiped, t-boned, hit head on, or hit as a pedestrian, we can assist you with your claim. 

What Information Do I Need To Provide My Lawyer?

Providing as much information as possible is crucial to your case. This is why, in the early stages of your claim process, you work with an attorney. When the accident first occurred, it’s imperative that you document as much as you can. Take photos, videos, gather witness statements, information about the others involved and their insurance information. You may also be able to acquire a police report from local authorities. All this information is important to gather as quickly as you can.

You shouldn’t take any calls from the other party’s insurance company as they will want to use what you say to minimize the compensation you may be eligible for. Simply inform them any communications regarding the incident should be discussed with your attorney.
