Causes of Car Accidents

Car accidents can result from a wide array of issues. From driver negligence to maintenance issues to external factors, anything that impacts driving conditions can potentially lead to a collision.

Some of the most common causes of car accidents include:

Common Car Accident Injuries

Collisions range widely in severity. While some car accident victims are able to walk away from a collision scene relatively unscathed, others are not so lucky. In any car accident case, it is crucial to promptly visit a medical professional to diagnose and treat any injuries.

A car accident can lead to injuries such as:

  • Broken bones
  • Burns
  • Cuts and scrapes
  • Bruises
  • Traumatic brain injuries
  • Spinal cord injuries
  • Damage to internal organs
  • Whiplash
  • Amputation/loss of limb
  • Muscle strain and tears

What to Do After a Car Accident

There are several steps that should almost universally be followed after a car accident. In the aftermath of a collision, adhering to these processes can help to ensure that your injuries are cared for and that your claim goes smoothly, whether you go through insurance or decide to pursue legal action.

After a car accident, you should:

  • Get medical attention as soon as possible
  • Help others if you are able to do so
  • Move vehicles out of the street, if possible
  • Photograph the accident scene, vehicle damage, and injuries
  • Exchange insurance details and contact information with other drivers and witnesses
  • Continually photograph the progress of your injuries
  • Save all relevant documentation
  • Contact the Connecticut car accident lawyers of Carter Mario Law Firm

Your ability to complete the steps listed above may be impacted by your physical state after a collision. Remember that your health comes first, and any of these processes can be completed once you are cared for. Our legal team can assist with evidence gathering while you are recovering from your injuries.

Getting Compensation

When you have been seriously injured in a car accident, the responsibility to cover your medical bills and associated expenses lies with the insurance company of the at-fault driver.

Unfortunately, insurance companies do not always offer fair compensation or pay as quickly as you need. Their goal is to make money, not to spend it paying claims. They do not have your best interests in mind. That is why you need an experienced Connecticut car accident lawyer from Carter Mario Law Firm by your side.

What Damages Can I Recover?

Depending on the nature of your accident, you may be able to recover compensation for:

  • Doctor’s bills
  • Hospital bills
  • Prescription drugs
  • Rehabilitation costs
  • Lost wages
  • Related expenses

Be sure to keep detailed records and receipts of all doctor’s visits, medical tests, and related expenses. This will help your attorney document the true cost of your injuries and secure the maximum possible compensation for your claim.

Who is Responsible for Your Accident?

Negligence occurs when someone fails to use reasonable care in a situation and that failure results in harm done to another person. In order for an accident victim to receive compensation for their injuries, they must first prove the negligent actions of another driver caused the accident in which they were injured.

At Carter Mario Law Firm, our Connecticut car accident lawyers can investigate the details of your accident and help you determine who is at fault.

What is Modified Comparative Negligence?

Even if you are partially at fault for your accident, you may still be able to seek compensation for your injuries. That’s because Connecticut uses a system of modified comparative negligence. Modified comparative negligence determines negligence based on the percentage of fault. As long as a judge or jury decides at least 51% of the responsibility for an accident lies with the other driver, you can still collect damages or compensation.

How Is Compensation Decided?

The amount of compensation you can receive for injuries suffered in a car accident depends on the distribution of fault between you and the other driver. Cases of modified comparative negligence can be hard to prove without experience in this area of the law. Having an experienced Connecticut car accident lawyer on your side will help. The right attorney can gather appropriate evidence to help ensure the percentage of fault is placed correctly.

Through careful preparation and attention to detail, Carter Mario Law Firm will make sure you get the compensation you need to cover medical bills and other injury-related expenses.
