If you or a loved one has been injured as a result of someone’s negligence in an automobile accident or motorcycle accident, you are entitled to full and fair compensation for your injuries and any other losses you may have suffered. At The Reinken Law Firm, we understand the emotional and financial effects an accident can have on your life. We can help by focusing on recovering the monetary compensation you deserve, so you can move on with your life.
Negligence is a complicated legal concept. In Connecticut, if a person acts negligently and as a result, causes injury to another person or another person’s property, the negligent person is liable. In other words, intent is not a factor. If harm was caused because the person acted negligently, the person is still liable.
Negligence requires proving a number of elements. The person must have owed you a duty to exercise reasonable care, which was then breached as a result of the person’s actions. Those actions must have caused the accident that resulted in your injuries, and the accident itself must have been foreseeable; that is, the accident must have been a likely result of the negligent actions. Finally, you must show that you’ve suffered harm.
In the aftermath of an accident, the safety of everyone involved is the most important thing. An ambulance should be called if anyone is injured. The police should also be called and a report made. Be sure to provide the police with detailed information about the accident.
You can also help in the collection of the following kinds of evidence:
It’s important to preserve what’s known as the “chain of evidence.” Documentation as to who obtained the evidence, where the evidence was obtained and when the evidence was obtained can be used in court if necessary.
At The Reinken Law Firm, we have years of experience handling claims related to automobile accidents and motorcycle accidents. We can assist you by investigating the circumstances of your accident, identifying the negligent party or parties, and determining the extent of your injuries for which you are entitled to compensation.
