Important Information Regarding Car Accidents

Injuries suffered in car accidents can cause lifelong impairments, disabilities and—in the worst cases—wrongful death. Accidents may even require that you pursue a significant property damage claim.

Follow the links below to learn about what you should do following a car accident, as well as what you can expect:

Were You Injured While Driving During Your Work Day?

If you suffered a car accident injury while you were on the job, you may be entitled to workers' compensation benefits in addition to pursuing a personal injury claim against the negligent party. Consult with an experienced Hartford car accident lawyer at Wein & Palermo, LLC for additional information.

Common Collisions

  • Head-On Collisions: If two cars traveling at 30 mph collide head-on, the passengers will experience a force equal to one car hitting a brick wall at 60 mph. Even at relatively low speeds, head-on collisions tend to cause the most serious injuries.
  • Rollover Accidents: Passengers in a rollover accident are put at risk because the roof of a car is not always designed to hold the weight of the car (this is changing in many newer cars). If the roof collapses, the passengers may be crushed under the weight of the car, or they may experience serious injuries to the head and neck.
  • Side-Impacts: Most of an automobile's major safety features — like crumple zones and airbags — are designed to protect occupants from head-on collisions. As a result, individuals involved in side-impact collisions (like "T-bone" and "sideswipe" collisions) often have little to protect them from serious injury.
  • Rear-End Accidents: The most typical injuries resulting from rear-end collisions are soft-tissue injuries like whiplash or spinal injuries such as a herniated or "bulging" disc. Rear-end accidents can be fatal, however, and even seemingly minor injuries can cause impairments or disabilities that affect the victim for the rest of his or her life.

In addition to handling these and other types of car accidents, Wein & Palermo, LLC also handles other motor vehicle accidents, including motorcycle accidents, pedestrian accidents, and truck accidents. No case is too big or too small for our legal team.
