Hartford Personal Injury Lawyer - Farmington, Waterbury, New Britain, South Windsor, New London, Simsbury, Watertown  What If ... Car Accidents
 
Your Question:
    The other driver caused the car accident but I got the ticket.
 
Our Answer:

    You should speak to an experienced car accident attorney right away if you are hurt in a motor vehicle accident and believe it was caused by the other driver, even though you got a ticket.  Get a copy of the police report from the police department that came to the accident scene and bring the report to the personal injury attorney.

    Police officers are trained to investigate auto accidents but they are only human and sometimes make mistakes.  The following car accident situations may cause an officer to make a mistake:

bullet

Witnesses who leave the car accident scene or do not identify themselves to the police.

bullet

Witnesses or drivers who intentionally lie about the car accident.

bullet

Witnesses or drivers who do not correctly remember what happened during the car accident .

bullet

Drivers or witnesses who do not speak English well enough to explain what happened in the car accident.

bullet

Important evidence at the car accident scene is overlooked.

bullet

Vehicles are moved after the car accident before the police arrive.

bullet

A police officer may unfairly think certain people are more believable than others.

bullet

A police officer may be more sympathetic to a driver who lives in the same town, is older, or seems more "respectable."

    If there is a question as to who caused an auto accident, it is extremely important to contact an attorney immediately to preserve important evidence.   Cars are fixed, witnesses move or forget, skid marks fade, debris from the car accident scatters or is moved.

    And even if you are partially at fault, Connecticut personal injury law allows you to recover for your injuries as long as you are not more than 50% responsible for the motor vehicle accident.
