Frequenlty Asked Questions
How to Determine Who’s at Fault in a Car Accident
It’s happened. You’re in a car accident, and after exchanging information and ensuring nobody is hurt, it’s time to determine who is at fault. This step of the process is crucial because it will determine who pays for the damages incurred.
How Much Time Do You Have to Report a Car Accident?
In Connecticut, you are required by law to report a car accident that caused damage exceeding $1,000 within five days of the accident. While that is how the law is written, police officers that arrive on the scene will file a report for you right after the accident.
How Much do Accident Lawyers Charge and What Should You Pay?
There are contingency fees and depending on the contract you sign, you might still be responsible court fees if your case goes to trial. There may be other litigation costs for which you may be responsible if the contract you sign with your attorney provides for this. You should carefully read and understand the language in your contract.
What Is the Average Settlement for a Car Accident?
Since there is no such thing as an average settlement for car accidents, you should ask yourself these questions, at a minimum, before you discuss your potential case with an experienced personal injury lawyer.
- Do you have a case that a personal injury attorney would want to handle?Although this is a question that your lawyer is best equipped to answer, it’s appropriate for you to speculate, based on the facts, not your opinion, of the accident.
- Were you injured along with others?If you were injured in the accident, always report your symptoms to your doctor so it becomes part of your medical file. Is your medical treatment over and complete? Some injuries may seem minor at first, but become long-term or chronic in the future, needing regular or periodic treatment for long periods. If you need long-term treatment or will miss work for a long period, you should estimate how much your medical treatment will cost, or how much money you might lose from being unable to work.
