Being the passenger in a New Haven auto accident can be devastating. You may be left with lasting injuries affecting your ability to work and enjoy life. If you were injured in an accident, taking the following steps will help us to better protect your long term interests:
Get examined by a doctor.
Sometimes it can take days, or even weeks, after you have been in a New Haven auto accident for you to realize that the injuries aren’t going away on their own. Make sure you get treated in the emergency room or with your primary care provider after you have been in an accident.
Get the police report.
If you were the passenger in an accident and a police officer responded to the scene, he/she filed a report with the city or town in which the accident occurred.
Call an experienced New Haven auto accident attorney.
Do not give any statements to either driver’s insurance company. The insurance company does not work for you, we do. We will use our 15 years of insurance defense experience to protect your long term interests.
