Across the country, millions of people are injured in car accidents. These accidents are life changing experiences, usually resulting in serious personal injuries. Although we cannot control how other people drive, we can control our response following the crash. The accident is just the beginning of a long process that typically starts with a police investigation and determination of fault, and proceeds to medical treatment, the filing of an insurance claim, and potentially litigation and trial. At Etemi Law, we have a track record of successfully handling all types of motor vehicle collisions, from the insurance claim filing, negotiations, all the way through litigation and trial. We know that the process can be difficult and intimidating and hiring a Waterbury car accident lawyer early on to fight for you is the key to maximizing success.

Causes of Motor Vehicle Accidents in Waterbury
There are various causes of automobile crashes, such as:
- Distracted driving like talking on the phone or to passengers, eating or drinking, or reading directions on a map or GPS
- Speeding and aggressive driving
- Intoxicated driving
- Changing lanes without signaling
- Following too closely
- Tire blowouts, brake failures, or other mechanical issues
- Bypassing stop signs or traffic lights
- Driving recklessly in dangerous weather conditions
- Poorly marked hazards on a road
Collecting evidence and determining the cause of a crash is a key part of filing a civil claim. To do this, a legal representative could visit the crash scene and interview bystanders. They may also examine police reports, traffic camera photographs, weather reports, vehicle maintenance history, and original vehicle manufacturing records. If necessary, a skilled Waterbury attorney could help a car crash plaintiff legally obtain copies of the other driver’s medical records to determine if this defendant was driving while intoxicated.
What Is the Impact of a Car Crash?
Serious car crashes can leave physical and emotional wounds that may linger for many weeks, months, years, or a lifetime. Often, motorists involved in accidents face expensive medical bills, rehabilitation costs, lost income, and a reduced enjoyment of daily life. A dedicated attorney in Waterbury could help an injured motorist evaluate their losses after a car accident and pursue an adequate settlement.
Sadly, some automobile accidents result in death. After a fatal crash, a compassionate legal team could help surviving family members file a wrongful death claim to seek much-needed justice.
