What You Should Do After A Connecticut Auto Accident

No one wants to be involved in a car crash. It's hard to know what steps to take to ensure the safety of those involved and the protection of your property and rights. After decades of working with clients who have been injured in all types of accidents we have simplified the steps.

Nine Steps To Take After An Accident

  1. Call the police to the scene.
  2. Do not get out of your car until you can do so safely.
  3. Take pictures of yourself, your car, the other car and the accident scene, but remember, safety first.
  4. Give the officer your version of the accident in a clear and understandable manner.
  5. Go to the hospital by ambulance if the police suggest it. They may observe something about your condition of which you are unaware.
  6. Within 24 hours, notify your auto accident insurance company of your accident.
  7. Within 24 hours, notify your health insurer of your ambulance and hospital visit.
  8. Notify your lawyer, and make an appointment to see him or her immediately.
  9. Don't talk with the other person's insurance company unless you are willing to take the risk of any misstatement being held against you.
