Retaining a personal injury lawyer is the best option for most people seeking the maximum possible compensation. Connecticut’s laws and court system can be confusing and difficult to successfully handle without experience. Insurance companies know who they can take advantage of and who is capable of holding them responsible for what they owe.
Many accident victims simply do not have the resources or time to litigate a claim by themselves – especially if they have serious injuries and their future financial stability is on the line. An experienced and compassionate attorney can provide much-needed peace of mind by taking care of all your legal work so that you can focus on healing and recovery.

It is important to note that Connecticut has some crucial laws to take into consideration when pursuing a personal injury claim.
Like most other states, Connecticut follows a fault-based system for personal injuries – if one or more parties are directly responsible for your injuries, you have a legal right to pursue them for financial compensation. Unfortunately, until they compensate you, you are responsible for your medical bills, medical care, and lost wages. It can be months or years before you are compensated, and you may not have the means to get the medical treatment you need. If you are without health insurance or have a large deductible, you may find you cannot afford the treatment you need or you may find that the hospital has sent you to collections. An experienced personal injury attorney can help when this happens and can make sure your case is moving forward as quickly as possible.
All states have a statute of limitations on personal injury claims – a strict time deadline for all valid claims. In Connecticut, the statute of limitations varies based on your type of case. The statute of limitations for a motor vehicle accident is two years from the date of the accident/injury. Other types of cases, including some car accident cases, have shorter and longer statutes of limitations. Certain cases require notices to be issued within months of the incident. This is the main reason that all accident victims should seek advice from a lawyer as soon as possible.
These laws can be difficult to understand when they are applied to your personal injury case, but an experienced personal injury attorney will be able to answer any questions and address any concerns you may have regarding these statutes. An experienced personal injury attorney can ensure that you are not denied compensation because you missed a crucial deadline while handling the case yourself.
Our passion for representing injured accident victims comes not only from a desire to recover financial compensation but also to help our clients take on the insurance company. When a person’s life has been altered because someone else was negligent, the injured person is entitled to compensation no matter what the insurance company says. We are committed to obtaining the maximum recovery for our clients.
