After a car crash, insurance companies begin calling immediately seeking information, medical records, recorded statements, and documentation. It can be overwhelming and uncomfortable. A lot of times people wonder they should be talking with the insurance company and if they are doing the right thing. It’s natural not to know what to do. At times the insurance company tries to resolve a claim quickly because they know the more time that passes the worse the injuries can get, and so the insurance company offers a small amount of money. In turn, this causes people to pause and think, “Why are they offering me money?” “It is enough?” “What if my injuries don’t get better?” and “Am I entitled to more money based on the nature and extent of my injuries?”

If you were recently in a motor vehicle collision, a knowledgeable lawyer at D’Amico & Pettinicchi, LLC can help guide you through the insurance claim process. Contacting an attorney after a Connecticut car accident is essential to getting the fair compensation you deserve for the full extent of your losses. Don’t let an insurance company take advantage of you. Below are some reasons you should contact our firm as soon as possible after a wreck.

We Will Fully Investigate the Accident

It’s important to speak to an attorney early on after a car crash in Connecticut because we’ll be able to investigate the case as fully as the circumstances allow. The sooner, the better because evidence disappears, pictures are deleted, video and camera footage gets overwritten, tire marks and roadway evidence fades, and witnesses move on. Being able to conduct an adequate investigation is time-sensitive.

The circumstances may require us to hire a skilled investigator or an accident reconstructionist to go to the crash scene to collect and preserve evidence. We might need to see both vehicles if they’re totaled or severely damaged before they’re repaired. This is all so we can accurately assess how the collision happened and the forces that caused your injuries.

We Are Familiar With the Legal Process

Another reason it’s essential to contact a Connecticut car accident attorney early on is that it’s hard to know and think about everything you might need to from a legal perspective. You’re not familiar with it. You need to find a lawyer you trust who understands the applicable laws, can make sure that everything is being properly investigated and documented, and that necessary statutes are being followed.

Having a team of capable legal professionals in your corner who can do all those things will allow you to focus on healing from your injuries and getting your life back on track.

We Will Consider Your Long-Term Needs

A good car accident lawyer isn’t going to just be thinking about the short term; they will also be thinking about the long term. Most people don’t think about the long term consequences when they get into a car crash. For example, a person might have some muscle strains or sprains and believe they will resolve in a few months. But then, a few months pass, and that pain isn’t going away. However, because they originally thought it was no big deal, they may have resolved their case quickly without getting the comprehensive compensation they needed. Unfortunately, a person in this situation could be left with a severe injury that affects them for the rest of their life and results in substantial medical costs, without adequate compensation because they resolved the claim too quickly.

Our experienced auto collision lawyers in Connecticut will look out for your best interests—not just in the short term but also in the long term. We will make sure that you’re getting a fair, honest, accurate assessment that includes an analysis of all variables of a legal claim.
