How a New Haven CT Injury Attorney Can Help Your Injury Case!

Posted by Richard P. Hastings | Sep 15, 2013 | 0 Comments

New Haven CT accidents happen on a daily basis. An experienced New Haven CT injury attorney is somebody that you should turn to in the event that you been injured in some type of accident in East Haven, West Haven, Hamden, New Haven, or any of the surrounding towns. People who are seriously injured in some type of an accident, whether it involves a car, motorcycle, truck, pedestrian or crosswalk, drunk driver, distracted driver, slip and fall, trip and fall, bicycle, train, bus, taxi cab, or any other type of accident in Connecticut need to know that there are a number of mistakes that can be made early on in your case that could have devastating financial consequences for you. The question is; why would you wait until you have made a mistake before contacting an experienced New Haven CT accident and personal injury lawyer that you can speak to for free?

I recently returned from court in New Haven and was amazed at the number of near accidents and very dangerous situations that I experienced while I was in New Haven. People were speeding, running red lights, not yielding the right-of-way, were texting or talking on their cell phones, people in crosswalks were almost hit by cars, people on bicycles experienced a number of close calls, and a number of motorcycle riders were almost cut off by other cars. Unfortunately, many people are highly distracted and are not paying attention when they drive their car, truck, motorcycle or other motor vehicle. The possibility of causing an accident and seriously injuring someone is quite great when you are not paying attention to what is going on around you. So if you are involved in some type of an accident, which is caused by the fault of another, there are a number of things that you should do at the accident site to help improve the value of your case.

If you have been injured, or if you are not feeling well, you should tell the police officer or emergency medical personnel what is wrong with you and you should be transported to the nearest hospital to be examined.  Once you get to the hospital you should be as specific as possible in describing all of your pain complaints and how you are feeling. If you are able to do so, you should take as many pictures of the accident site as possible so that you could show these pictures to your Connecticut accident lawyer to help establish the liability of the other party. You should also get the contact information of any and all witnesses so that these people can be contacted later.  As soon as possible, you should contact an experienced CT accident lawyer to have your rights explained to you so you can determine how you should proceed with your case. You should not, under any circumstances, speak with the insurance adjuster of the at fault party unless and until you first speak with an experienced CT injury attorney.
