Five resources we can often use to benefit a car accident claim are:
Videos and testimonies: We know where to look and who to interview to learn more about your accident
from other perspectives.
Police reports: The police often have the most comprehensive reports of a crash scene,
so we’ll want copies of anything they’ve written down.
Toxicology results: If there is any reason to suspect the other driver was drunk, then we
can use toxicology test results to get to the truth.
Accident reconstruction: Our law firm can work with accident reconstruction experts to determine
various details of your crash, like the speed of the other driver.
Biomechanical testimony: We might be able to use biomechanical evidence that proves who was driving
the other vehicle at the time of the crash if that’s being contested.

How Long After a Car Accident Can You Claim for Damages?
Connecticut's statute of limitations allows for victims of car accidents
to file a personal injury lawsuit up to 2 years after the date of their
accident. Failure to file a lawsuit within this timeframe will most likely
result in the case being thrown out by the court.
How Long Does It Take to Settle a Car Accident Case?
One common question that our firm is asked regarding car accident lawsuits
is "How long will it take till I receive compensation?" The
answer to this depends on several things:
How serious your injuries are
Whether or not the insurance company is willing to negotiate with us for
a fair settlement
Whether or not we take your case to court
At the end of the day our goal is to obtain the best settlement possible
for our clients. That sometimes means waiting until clients reach maximum
medical improvement so that we can accurately determine what long-term
effects there may be from your injuries. We also believe in taking our
time and building a strong case that will hold up in court. A car accident
settlement may take anywhere from several months to several years, depending
on the details of your case.
