After a serious injury, you may be eligible to file a personal injury claim against the person or entity who was responsible for your accident. A personal injury claim can help hold the at-fault party accountable for the losses and injuries connected to the accident. A successful personal injury case in Connecticut could force the negligent party (most often through an insurance policy) to pay for losses such as medical bills, legal fees, property damages and lost wages. The best way to manage a personal injury case is to hire a lawyer in Danbury to represent you.
You don’t have to – nor should you – pursue compensation for a serious personal injury alone. We always recommend that you see a doctor and aat least speak with an attorney if you suffered even minor injuries. This is important because sometimes injuries manifest themselves or worsen with time. Getting medical treatment and speaking with an attorney will help make sure any injury is diagnosed and that you fully understand your situation before speaking with an insurance company. Handling your case without the help of an attorney could lead to common mistakes such as missing the deadline to file a lawsuit or accepting an unjust settlement offer. Rather than risking your future, hire an attorney to properly handle your personal injury case. A lawyer will handle tasks for you, such as:
When an accident impacts your relationships, daily life, finances and ability to earn, go to a lawyer for help handling your case. An attorney knows how to pursue maximum compensation in Danbury. Your lawyer will apply all the right laws and techniques to your case to improve your chances of a successful result. Most importantly, a lawyer can give you the peace of mind to focus on healing.
The way the insurance process works means you will be responsible for paying for your own accident-related losses until you reach a settlement. If you don’t have health insurance or have a large deductible, you may not be able to afford the treatment you need. In these cases, the hospital bills can add up quickly and, if unpaid, end up in collections. At The Flood Law Firm, we know how stressful and financially taxing this is for an accident victim. That is why we don’t charge anything upfront for our services. We can help you manage your financial situation while you wait for a settlement – all at $0 upfront.
Thanks to our contingency fee payment arrangement, you will never pay our lawyers out of pocket. If we do not achieve a successful settlement or verdict on your behalf, you won’t owe us anything in lawyer’s fees. The thousands spent on investigations, court costs, filing fees, and experts won’t come at any cost to you unless we secure compensation. If we do win your case, our fees will never exceed more than one-third, or 33.33%, of your financial recovery. For recoveries over $300,000, we reduce our fees on a sliding scale. If you retain our services, we will get to work quickly on your claim and help you resolve it as soon as possible to minimize the financial impact.

One crucial law in Connecticut that must be considered when pursuing a personal injury case is the statute of limitations. The statute of limitations is a time limit on your ability to file a claim. For example, in Connecticut, you have a maximum of two years from the date of a car accident to bring a cause of action. For a wrongful death case, you have two years from the date of the victim’s death. Your time limit could be longer or shorter depending on the case. That’s why it is important to speak to a personal injury lawyer as soon as possible after a negligence-related accident in Danbury. Missing the statute of limitations means losing your right to file.
