Injured as a Driver? Understand Your Rights.

When you have been injured in a car accident through no fault of your own, it’s important you fully understand your rights. Knowing your rights under the law can often mean the difference between getting a small settlement and a settlement that can cover medical bills, lost wages, and other expenses. Carter Mario Law Firm helps injured clients understand their rights. A full understanding of these rights can help you get the compensation you deserve.

If you have been injured in a car accident, trust Carter Mario Law Firm to help. Contact our team today at (203) 806-9256 to schedule your free, no-obligation consultation.

What are Your Rights?

Under the law, you — as an injured driver — have the right to:

  • Avoid Speaking to Insurance Adjusters: Although you should inform your insurance company in the event of an accident, you don’t have to talk about it with an adjuster. The less you tell an adjuster, the better — as they may use your words against you to try to deny you compensation.
  • Choose Your Own Doctor: You’re free to select a doctor or healthcare provider of your choice for your medical needs after a car accident. However, if the insurance company pays for your medical bills, you may be required to see doctors who are part of a specific insurance network.
  • Retain an Attorney: A car accident can be legally complicated, as many people may be at fault for the accident and could become involved in your claim. That’s why it’s a good idea to retain a car accident lawyer who understands the law and can make sure your rights are protected.

If you have suffered injuries in an accident caused by the negligence or carelessness of another person, we’ll provide a helping hand. In times like these, it is important to have a seasoned legal advocate on your side. An experienced personal injury attorney can take care of your legal claim.
