Insurance After an Accident

Advice from Our Ridgefield Car Accident Attorneys

In the state of Connecticut, all drivers must carry motor vehicle insurance with minimum liability coverage providing at least:

  • $20,000 bodily injury liability for one person injured in an accident
  • $40,000 bodily injury liability for all injuries in one accident
  • $10,000 property damage liability for one accident
  • Combined $20,000/$40,000 of uninsured /underinsured motorists bodily injury

The idea behind insurance is that, when auto accidents occur, payment will be made to the victims. This is the idea, but seldom the reality. The sad truth is, without a car accident lawyer on your side, you may not see even a fraction of what you are owed.

You need to contact Hastings, Cohan & Walsh, LLP today and speak with a trusted lawyer about your case!

How to Deal with Insurance after an Auto Accident

When you are involved in a car accident, you will need to report it to your insurance company right away. When reporting your accident, be careful to give details without suggesting you were at fault. Insurance companies know what to look for to minimize your claim and any suggestion that you are at fault can work against your best interest.

In some instances, your auto accident claim can be handled through insurance companies without legal action, but even when this is the case, it is best to have a New Haven car accident lawyer on your side. It is possible that additional legal action will be necessary to pursue damages in excess of what the insurance companies will pay. In fact, it is not uncommon for insurance companies to make quick offers in an attempt to minimize the settlement you could achieve with the help of a lawyer.

Before you accept an insurance offer, speak to one of our Ridgefield auto accident lawyers. We can assess the actual damages you are facing and help you determine if additional action could help you secure the settlement you deserve.
