Car Accidents And Other Motor Vehicle Crash Claims
In addition to car accidents, we can also help you if you have been:
- Involved in a trucking accident
- Hit by a negligent driver while riding a motorcycle
- Hit by a bus or hurt while riding a bus
- Involved in a bicycle accident
- Involved in a pedestrian accident
Our attorneys represent people who have been involved in collisions of all types, from rollovers to wrong-way crashes to hit-and-runs.
Common Causes Of Car Crashes
There are as many causes of car accidents as there are drivers on the road. However, in our practice we frequently see cases involving:
- Distracted drivers using a cellphone, texting, applying makeup and other distractions
- Drunk drivers and drivers impaired by the use of drugs or medications
- Reckless drivers who are speeding, running lights or otherwise driving carelessly
- Defective auto parts such as air bags or tires
Our team will work closely with you to learn about the circumstances surrounding your car accident. We will collect valuable information, including police reports, medical records and witness testimony that will help to prove that your injuries directly resulted from a negligent driver or a defective auto part.
Compensation After A Crash
We are committed to helping you obtain maximum compensation for the physical injuries you have sustained in the crash, as well as the emotional and financial damages you have suffered. This includes pursuing compensation to help you cover:
- Medical expenses
- Lost wages if you were unable to return to work immediately
- Damages for your pain and suffering
- Other out-of-pocket expenses associated with your accident and injury
In addition to your personal injury claim, our lawyers will work with the involved insurance companies to explore all options for recovery and to seek the maximum coverage available under the policy. In cases involving drivers without insurance or hit-and-run accidents, you may also have coverage under your uninsured/underinsured motorist (UIM) insurance, which is required under Connecticut law.
Fatal Car Accidents And Wrongful Death
When an accident results in fatal injuries, no amount of compensation can make up for the loss. However, the law recognizes the financial costs associated with the loss of a life. We can help you seek compensation for a fatal car wreck through a wrongful death claim. Through this process, you can secure compensation to help you cover funeral costs, medical expenses, the loss of income and the loss of companionship.
