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
- Cuts and scrapes
- Traumatic brain injuries
- Spinal cord injuries
- Damage to internal organs
- 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.
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
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
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.
