Being involved in a traffic accident is a frustrating experience. Many accident victims suffer severe injuries and incur expensive medical bills, even in an auto accident deemed “minor” by an insurance company. You may be upset at the other driver for causing the accident or angry at your insurance company for giving you the runaround. At Dzialo, Pickett & Allen, P.C., we will always put your needs first.
For 50 years, our experienced personal injury attorneys have been helping people in Middletown, Old Saybrook and Hartford with all types of motor vehicle accidents, including:
- Car accidents: Being injured by a negligent driver is emotionally and financially challenging. We will be your advocates, helping you navigate the process of seeking compensation for injuries caused by distracted or drunk drivers.
- Truck accidents: Heavy tractor-trailer traffic on Interstate 91, Route 9, Interstate 95 and other local highways can make these roads dangerous for other drivers. Our lawyers know federal trucking regulations and how to tell if a driver or trucking company has violated them.
- Motorcycle accidents: A motorcycle accident often results in catastrophic injury. While you focus on your physical recovery, we can help you recover financially.
What Should I Do After An Accident?
There are a few important things that anyone who has been involved in an accident should do to protect himself or herself:
- Take pictures of the crash scene and the damage to your vehicle.
- Do not talk to the other party’s insurance adjuster.
- Do not agree to provide a recorded statement.
- Seek medical attention.
- Call an attorney.
Insurance companies care about their own best interests, not yours. We will work with it on your behalf to help you get a fair settlement.
