Types of Car Accidents

Norwich, Connecticut Car Accident Attorneys

The kind of car accident a motorist is involved in will often tell investigators a fair amount about how and why it happened. Additionally, certain kinds of accidents are more likely to involve serious, catastrophic injuries than others. At the Anderson Law Firm, our lawyers work closely with accident investigators in determining the cause of a car accident and who bears responsibility for the injuries that result.

By analyzing damage done to the vehicles involved, measuring skid marks, and noting the physical terrain and signage near an accident, our attorneys and their investigators recreate what happened and why. We have the experience, resources and knowledge to challenge insurance companies that attempt to assign fault to our client, providing evidence that undermines the claims of insurance expert witnesses.

What the Type of Car Accident says about the Cause of an Accident

The kind of car accident often provides important clues to investigators in recreating what happened. If we know the direction both vehicles were traveling in, as well as their speed, it is usually possible to determine what a driver should have seen before the accident occurred.

For instance, in a rear end collision at a stop sign is different from a side impact collision: in the former, the driver should have clearly seen the car he rear-ended; in the latter, one of the cars failed to see the other and may have ran through the intersection illegally. In a crash where there are no skid marks or indication that a driver attempted to stop, the conclusion is the driver failed to see the other car, whether distracted by texting a message or drunk.

In working with accident investigators, our attorney reconstruct what happened in order to demonstrate negligence on the part of the driver responsible. In many cases, establishing the speed and direction of the cars involved is enough to determine who is at fault.
