Get Answers To Car Accident Questions

Thousands of Connecticut residents are injured in car accidents every year. Many of these victims do not know how to deal with insurance companies. Unfortunately, many accident victims make the same mistakes. At Jainchill & Beckert, LLC, we consider your well-being our duty. Therefore, we have compiled a list to help you know what to do after a car crash and to answer your questions about accidents, injuries and insurance.

What Do I Say To The Other Driver?

The first thing you should do is check to see if anyone needs immediate medical help. If so, call 911.

When you speak with other drivers involved in your accident, you need to record their name, insurance information and any relevant information. If the collision was not your fault, do not apologize. While most people may feel bad about being involved in a collision, apologizing can jeopardize any insurance claims you file later. You should call the police, as a police officer can help guarantee you and the other drivers get all the appropriate information.

When Should I See My Doctor?

You should seek medical attention if you are hurt or injured. If it's an emergency, call 911 right away. For nonemergency medical needs, seek medical help as soon as possible.

Medical treatment and rest are usually the most effective means to recovery. Seeing a doctor is important to help you diagnose your injuries, anticipate long-term effects of your injuries and create a treatment plan that will get you back to good health. This is extremely important for your long-term quality of life and for your injury claim.

What Types Of Injuries Are Eligible For A Personal Injury Suit?

Many injuries can qualify for a personal injury suit. Injuries can be relatively minor, like muscle strains and sprains, or more serious, such as broken bones, back pain, slipped discs, torn muscles and head injuries. In severe cases, they can cause paralysis or death. Our lawyers can help you determine if you should bring a claim for your injuries.

Do I Really Need An Attorney?

YES. Insurance companies will often try to settle quickly and without fully accounting for your long-term needs. Furthermore, insurance companies have armies of claims adjusters working to minimize your claim. Our attorneys will meet with you, review the facts and work together to determine how to best advocate for your case. We will work tirelessly to pursue your claim. If we cannot settle your claim out of court, we will aggressively litigate your case all the way to trial.

Our attorneys have been recognized statewide and nationally for their trial skills. While no attorney can guarantee a successful jury verdict, we will use our experience and work ethic on your behalf to get the best results possible.
