What Counts As A Personal Injury?

If you or a loved one is hurt because someone was inattentive or because someone failed to follow a law, you may be able to recover financial damages by filing a personal injury lawsuit.

What Is The Statute Of Limitations?

For a personal injury case, you typically have two years from the time of your accident to pursue a lawsuit.

What If I Was Partly Responsible For My Accident?

Connecticut uses comparative fault to determine who is liable for car crashes and other accidents. As long as the other party was 51 percent responsible or more for the accident, you can recover compensation, although the amount you receive will be reduced.

My Insurance Is Offering Me A Settlement. Should I Take It?

You should not accept any offer without consulting an attorney. Insurance companies consistently undervalue initial settlements. You deserve complete compensation.

Do I Need A Lawyer?

Would you attempt to treat a serious injury by yourself? Perhaps you would if it were an emergency or you had absolutely no choice. If you did have a choice, you would seek the care of a skilled, caring physician.

In the same sense, you might try to speak with an insurance company or their attorney about trying to settle a case. However, only a highly skilled, driven law firm can make sure that you obtain the best possible result and highest available financial recovery.
