Donovan & Morello, LLP April 15, 2024

If you've been involved in an auto accident, there are some things you should do to ensure your claim is properly taken care of. The first thing is to check for injuries and call the police.

Next, exchange information with the other driver and gather witness information from any bystanders who saw the crash happen. Get their names, addresses and contact details of anyone who may have witnessed the collision.

Be sure to stay calm. Do not admit any fault in the accident, even to be polite. Do not argue with the other driver. Calmly give the accident details to the police and later to your attorney. Cooperate with the investigating police officers and be polite. Being argumentative gets you nowhere with them and may even be noted in the police report to your detriment.

Take photographs and videos of the accident scene before the vehicles have been moved. Use your phone to document the location of the vehicles and the damage caused to the vehicles caused by the crash.

Next, contact your insurance company to notify them of the collision and file a report with them. Lastly speak with an experienced Connecticut auto accident lawyer.
