If you have suffered injuries due to the negligence of another individual it is imperative that you assert your legal rights and hold that party accountable.

What to Do Immediately Following a Car Accident
Being involved in a motor vehicle accident can be an extremely frightening experience. Though not your fault, you may be living with physical, financial, and psychological consequences for a lengthy period after the accident. To ensure your rights are protected after an accident, here are some smart steps to follow:
- Check yourself for injuries and seek medical attention. Though you may feel ok initially, adrenaline can take over after an accident, and some internal injuries are not felt until sometime after the accident.
- Exchange information with the other parties, police officers, and witnesses.
- Take photos of the vehicles involved in the accident, the accident scene, and the surrounding area.
- Contact your insurance company, after which time you will want to hire an experienced Fairfield and New Haven County personal injury attorney to assist you in your claim.
Why Hiring an Experienced Car Accident Attorney is Important
Receiving full compensation for all your injuries from the insurance company is not as straightforward as one may assume. Insurance companies are a business and want to make a profit. They do not want to pay you top dollar for your injuries, and if they can get away with paying you less than you deserve, they will do exactly that.
Having an experienced lawyer on your side will help ensure that you are properly compensated for your injuries. Insurance companies have access to vast resources, and teams of lawyers. In many instances, this intimidates car accident victims and the insurance companies use this to their advantage. Having an advocate with years of experience will ensure that you are not taken advantage of by these companies.
