What Are Your Rights After a Car Accident in Danbury, CT?
As a victim of a Danbury car accident, you have legal rights. Understanding these rights is important if you want to win your case, get your due compensation, and ensure that justice is served.
You have the right to refuse insurance company requests
For starters, you have the right to refuse to give any statements to the at-fault road user's insurance company. The other party's insurance company will likely request a recorded statement from you before processing your claims.
You should refuse to give a statement if you don't have a personal injury lawyer to represent you. In fact, it's better to speak to a personal injury lawyer first before signing any documents sent to you by the insurance company or providing a recorded statement.
Your personal injury lawyer will make sure that you're not being taken advantage of and guide you on what to say if you must send the recorded statement to the insurance company.
You have the right to seek damages
You have the right to seek damages for all financial, emotional, and physical losses you may have suffered as a result of the negligent road user's actions.
You can also seek damages for:
- Mental agony and distress
- Physical disability
- Personal injury
- Pain and suffering
- Property damage
- Loss of income
- Present and future medical expenses
- Rehabilitative expenses
- Loss of ability to earn wages
You have the right to sue other parties
You have a right to sue third parties who inadvertently contributed to your motor vehicle accident either through their negligence or carelessness. For example, if you were hit by a delivery worker, there are many other possible liable parties. Apart from the at-fault driver, you can sue the driver's company if you perceive that their unreasonable schedules caused the at-fault driver's fatigue, which led to the accident.

Major Causes of Car Accidents in Danbury, CT
Every year, the State of Connecticut records an average of over 100,000 car accidents. While most vehicle accidents are generally caused by negligence and/or carelessness, it's important to get the specifics.
These specifics can often play a role in eventually determining your compensation and/or damages. For example, a mild accident caused by distracted driving and no personal injury will attract less compensation than a road rage incident that leads to severe bodily injuries and a damaged motor vehicle.
Some of the common factors that contribute to car accidents in Connecticut include:
- Drunk driving
- Excessive speeding
- Distracted driving
- Unsafe backing
- Sudden or improper lane change
- Driver fatigue
- Driving while under the influence of opioids or illicit substances
- Failure to yield
- Careless driving in hazardous road conditions
- Poor vision at night
- Road rage
- Slow driving
- Reckless driving
If you sustained injuries or lost property in an accident caused by one or more of these factors, contact the fast-working car accident lawyers at Gould Injury Law to evaluate your case for free. If you do have a solid claim, we'll work fast and hard to help you get the settlement you deserve.
