What Should I Do If I’m Involved in an Accident?
As a seasoned personal injury attorney in New Haven, I understand how overwhelming it can be for individuals to be involved in automobile accidents. A car accident or collision can be anything from a small fender bender to major head-on crash. Whatever the case, any type of accident can result in serious injuries and damages for the plaintiffs.
Make sure you do the following after your accident to protect your interest:
- Exchange insurance / contact information with the other driver
- Don’t discuss who is at fault or apologize for any reason
- Take pictures of the surrounding scene, injuries, and damages
- Talk to witnesses and take down their contact info as well
- Cooperate with police and request a report when it is ready
- Get medical attention—even if your injuries don’t seem that big of a deal

Determining Who Is At Fault for the Collision
One of the biggest questions in car accident cases is who is at fault. In any case, all parties involved will likely try to avoid accepting blame. Whether you were hit by a commercial truck driver or a drunk driver, you will still need to determine who is at fault and prove their liability in your case.
In Connecticut, car accidents are governed by an at-fault car insurance system. This means the at-fault driver’s liability insurance will be used to cover damages.
Another driver may be considered at-fault if they were:
- Speeding or driving aggressively
- Distracted behind the wheel
- Texting or talking on the phone
- Falling asleep while at the wheel
- Driving while under the influence of drugs / alcohol
- Violating any other traffic law
Even something as simple as talking to a passenger, changing the radio, or eating while driving can result in a serious accident—something that driver is now at fault for. When you can identify and prove this liability, you can ensure that you will get the compensation you deserve. As a New Haven car accident attorney, I am well equipped to investigate your case and compile compelling evidence.
