What To Do After a Car Accident

After suffering a car accident in the Milford, CT area, it's important that you take certain steps. Penner Law Firm's lawyers have seen innocent victims miss out on compensation they might have deserved because they made a few understandable mistakes in the aftermath of a car accident.


Fortunately, the steps you should take aren't particularly complicated. They involve exercising reasonable caution and protecting your legal rights. Our car accident lawyers urge you to:

  • Exchange insurance information in a calm, even-keeled fashion. Don't engage in a confrontation with the other driver. Conversely, don't admit any fault.

  • Take pictures of the accident scene, including the cars and the surrounding environment

  • Get a copy of any accident report generated at the scene by police or other emergency responders

  • Seek medical attention immediately, even if you feel fine. Let paramedics examine you if they are called to the scene. If they aren't, see your doctor or visit a hospital as soon as possible

  • Don't sign anything from the insurance companies without having a lawyer look it over first

  • Finally, speak to our car accident lawyers as soon as possible. We've helped many Milford, CT residents like you in the aftermath of a devastating car accident.
