First, stay at the scene and call 911. Then, wait for the Connecticut State Police or local law enforcement to secure the scene. Next, cooperate with the investigating officer and exchange contact information with the other driver, but keep your comments at the scene brief. Don’t say anything about fault for the accident.
Your next call should be to get medical attention, even if you feel fine. Go to the emergency room, an urgent care center, or your primary care provider. This is the best option to protect your health and your legal rights. Then, call a verified car accident attorney as soon as possible – ideally, before you talk to the insurance company.
