In recent years, millions of Americans have been involved in auto accidents. While the accident rate declined in 2011, it increased by 7.1 percent in the first half of 2012, according to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration. Accident victims often suffer serious injuries. Unfortunately, severe injuries can lead to financial hardship, which is why it is important to consult with a Stamford injury attorney as soon as possible after your accident. The Reinken Law Firm has represented individuals and families in thousands of auto accident cases over the past three decades. We can help you recover damages when another driver or party is responsible for causing your injury.
During the initial shock of an accident, when adrenalin is pumping strongly, people sometimes do not experience much pain. However, it is a good idea to seek medical attention anyway.

By seeing a doctor right away, you document your accident injuries, which is important when determining the value of a car crash claim. Symptoms of TBI can range from dizziness, headache and nausea to vomiting, loss of consciousness for minutes or hours and profound confusion. Next to falls, auto accidents are the second most prevalent cause of TBI. If you or a loved one experiences loss of consciousness during an accident, you should definitely seek immediate medical attention.
In addition to the issue of who is at fault, determination of the cause of an accident plays an important role in your auto accident claim. Factors include:
