It's no secret that auto accidents are pretty common; the car insurance industry estimates that an individual will file a claim for a collision about once every 17.9 years. However, not everyone will actually be injured in one of those accidents. Being hurt in a car crash can be extremely scary, and while a car can be fixed or replaced, your health could be affected for the rest of your life.
According to the National Safety Council motor vehicle accident deaths are on the rise nationally. They recently reported data for the first 6 months of 2015 and compared that to the same period for 2014. The data results are that motor vehicle accident deaths are up 14% in 2015 compared to 2014 for the United States. They were also up nationally in 2014 as compare to 2013. In Connecticut, however, the data is that accidents were down 20% in 2015, with 95 reported fatalities from a motor vehicle accidents.
Injuries from motor vehicle accidents range from whiplash, to serious cuts and lacerations, to fractures, to traumatic brain injuries, and death.

Talk To a Lawyer Before You Accept the Insurance Company's Low Offer
We're always told to call our car insurance companies after an accident, but if you've been seriously injured, the insurance folks have one goal: to pay you as little as possible. You will almost always be given a lowball offer. For most people, that offer is never going to be enough to cover their medical bills and other accident-related expenses. Before you give in to pressure and accept anything from the insurance company, call one of our personal injury attorneys in Groton for a free consultation.
