How do I create my own accident report?

After any car accident, it is usually best to call the police and wait at the scene of the collision until they arrive. Even if you don't think that you suffered an injury or if the other person verbally accepts fault at the scene, an official accident report filed with the police is a very useful thing to have if things get more complicated later on. Many accidents have seemed like simple fender benders at the time, only for the driver who was hit to realize later he or she suffered an injury. Similarly, many drivers accept fault at the scene and then later change their mind.

Multi-car pileup under investigation

Car accidents between two drivers can be complex enough on their own, let alone those that involve multiple drivers and vehicles. Insurance providers and victims have their work cut out for them after a recent multi-car pileup right here in Hartford. The six-car collision is currently being investigated by the Hartford police.

Do you need a lawyer after an injury accident?

After a car accident, you may think that you can simply leave the matter up to insurance companies and focus on your recovery. Unfortunately, this is not always the case. Insurance companies, like any business, have motivation to avoid paying out money if they do not have to. If you suffer an injury in a car accident, there is no guarantee that an insurance company will definitely pay for all of your recovery costs, let alone the losses you suffer economically because of the accident.

Man dies in rollover accident

Whenever you are on the road, there is always the possibility that tragedy can strike. Unfortunately, even if you are a very careful driver, you cannot always compensate for the reckless actions of other drivers on the road. Just such a tragedy played out near Orange, Connecticut, recently, when a man lost his life after his vehicle rolled down an embankment in a two-car collision.

Delayed pain after a car accident may indicate a serious injury

Many victims of car accidents do not experience pain from their injuries immediately. Unfortunately, delayed pain doesn't mean an injury is minor. If you recently were in a car accident and you only now began to experience pain, you should seek professional medical care immediately. Many injuries that produce delayed pain are quite serious, and in some cases, can even be fatal if left untreated.

Your accident may have been caused by negligence

If you have recently been involved in an accident, you probably need to consult with an attorney to make sure that your rights remain protected and to determine whether or not your experience qualifies you to pursue fair compensation from the other party or parties in the accident. Sometimes, it is not easy to know who is at fault in the accident — but that does not help you if you suffered injuries. Even if the other party did not do anything intentionally to harm you, they may be responsible because of their negligence.

Woman struck by car while crossing street

A woman was recently injured after being struck by a vehicle while crossing the street right here in Hartford, according to police records. The authorities say that they arrived at the scene of an accident between a vehicle and pedestrian to find that the woman had been struck and injured.

Mild traumatic brain injuries are a major problem

When you experience a car accident, there are some injuries you might suffer obviously, and some that may be more difficult to diagnose. One injury that may go overlooked is a mild traumatic brain injury (TBI). Mild TBI's can be very sneaky injuries that wreck your life before you even understand what is happening. Without an effective diagnosis and proper treatment, your mild TBI can derail your career and relationships.

Seeking damages for intangible loss

Recovering from a car accident may seem like a straightforward process, but it can be deceptively complex and lengthy. While you might be able to easily measure how long it takes you to recover from many forms of physical injury, it is often the less visible forms of injury that take the longest to heal and are some of the most painful.

How to acquire and use a police report

After you are injured in a car accident, there are many steps that must be taken before you can obtain justice and be awarded damages in an injury claim. Especially at the beginning stages, it can seem overwhelming to know where to start. In situations like this, having a team of experienced professionals on your side and fighting for your rights can make an enormous difference. No matter how you choose to pursue fair compensation for your losses, you will almost certainly want to obtain a copy of the police report for your accident.
