Providing legal help after a Connecticut car accident

Wednesday February 4, 2015

Connecticut residents who have been through them will say that injury car accidents wreak havoc in people’s lives. The difficulties victims and family members face are innumerable. Physical pain and suffering are just the start. Too often financial pain sets in as medical costs and lost wages bring a family close to financial ruin. The situation can be even worse for people who lose loved ones. Fortunately, Connecticut law allows victims and surviving family members to seek monetary compensation.

Even with state laws in place that allow victims to seek compensation, legal action after a car accident can be emotionally difficult. Getting the appropriate medical attention is the first challenge; obtaining crash records and dealing with insurance companies then requires time and persistence. Once these steps are complete, however, an accident victim can contact a lawyer to understand his or her legal options.

After many accidents, both the drivers at fault and their insurance companies deny any liability on their part. This is why accident investigation reports are so important. If a report shows that one driver is the victim in an accident, then he or she can pursue a personal injury claim against the other driver and insurance company. Even then, the going can be tough because insurance companies are experienced in dealing with car accident victims and know how to compel accident victims to accept settlements that are inadequate to cover the true financial costs of an accident.

Experienced personal injury attorneys like those at Kennedy, Johnson, Schwab & Roberge, L.L.C., can help. The attorneys at our law firm will look through an accident investigation report to determine if an at-fault driver and insurance company are liable. Compensation a victim might receive should at least cover the financial losses that are common in the aftermath of a car accident.
