Below are some helpful tips on what to do after a car accident:
Under no circumstances ever leave the scene of the accident until the police arrive. In Connecticut the police will always come to the accident scene regardless of the severity. Often those who tell you they are at fault change their story after the fact and without the police officer documenting fault, it makes pursuing a claim that much tougher.
Also what appears to be a minor accident, based on the visible damage to your car or what you initially feel on your body often can later become a major incident. In the day after a car accident, many victims of an accident often develop serious injuries from accidents that due to adrenaline and shock are not apparent to the accident victim on the scene of the accident. It is always wise to get examined by a medical professional after the accident and in the days and weeks that follow. Additionally, when you take your car to a reputable auto body shop they often discover additional damage to the frame or under your bumper or even to your mechanical system that would not be apparent to you from just a visual inspection.
