Below are some helpful tips on what to do after a car accident:

After a Car Accident Tip #1

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.

After a Car Accident Tip #2

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.

Tindall Law Firm, LLC is very experienced and has been very successful in helping those who are victims of accidents, and would be glad to help you through this process, even assisting you with getting your vehicle fixed and seeking compensation for your injuries, medical treatment, lost wages, pain and suffering and the impact the accident has upon your life. We handle this representation on a contingency legal fee  we receive from the at fault party and their insurance company, so that you owe us no fees or costs unless we are successful. Further, those fees and costs are paid out of the compensation paid by the at fault party and their insurance and not from the accident victim directly.
