The Flood Law Firm was founded by brothers and partners, Brian and Christopher Flood in 2012. In 2019, Erica Pilicy Ryan became a partner of the firm. Our lawyers, paralegals and staff are some of the best and the results for our clients are a product of their hard work, dedication, and professionalism.
Although The Flood Law Firm has grown extensively since its founding, our core values remain the same. We protect people who have been harmed through no fault of their own. We go head-to-head with insurance companies and large corporations every day to fight for individuals. Every person on our team plays a key role in helping our clients receive the compensation they deserve so they can put their lives back together.
The Flood Firm is Different than other firms
Not all law firms are the same. When you hire The Flood Law Firm, you hire legal professionals who are passionate and dedicated to their clients and have the resources, experience, and reputation to get things done. What sets us apart from other law firms is that we know what’s at stake and we know what you are up against. We have successfully overcome insurance industry tactics for decades.
We recognize that people get seriously injured by the carelessness of others in all types of accidents. Accidents result in broken bones, torn ligaments, surgery, hospitalization, rehabilitation, paralysis and death. They result in medical bills, lost wages, forced retirement, disability and lost relationships. They result in pain and discomfort that may never heal.
We recognize that not all injuries are the same. Some injuries are obvious. Some injuries are undetectable at the time of the accident. Sometimes symptoms such as numbness, stiffness, soreness, and headaches often indicate a much more serious problem. Severe headaches and cognitive dysfunction can be indicators of a traumatic brain injury. Numbness and tingling in the extremities can be signs of a herniated disc in the spine.
We recognize that after an accident, you are hurting. You may be without a car. You may be out of work. Your family still needs you. And you need appropriate medical care for your injuries. You may have inadequate health insurance or no health insurance at all. These problems have to be solved or they will continue to impact you and your family.
We recognize that when you are injured as a result of someone else’s fault, you will be forced to navigate through a maze of medical bills, different forms of health insurance, disability insurance, and car insurance. You will be forced to deal with insurance adjusters asking questions, taking recorded statements and asking you to sign legal documents that you may not understand. The process can be overwhelming, especially if you are dealing with an injury or injured loved ones. The process can also be unfair, especially if you do not have a lawyer to protect your rights from the beginning.
The law protects you
Our country recognizes that accidents happen and that they impact all of us. For that reason, the law is designed to protect us and make us whole after an accident. You have the right to get back what someone else has taken from you. You have the right to bring a case. You have the right to have a competent trial lawyer litigate your case to get you the best possible settlement. If necessary, you have the right to a trial. You have the right to present evidence of fault and evidence of your injuries to a jury of your peers. Your medical bills, lost income, diminished quality of life and pain and suffering are all recognized under Connecticut law as real, compensable damages. The insurance company owes you monetary compensation for everything the accident took from you. And the insurance company owes you what your injuries will cost you in the future.
Insurance companies are a necessary evil.
We know Insurance companies were created to compensate injured victims, but they are more interested in profits over people. These billion-dollar insurance companies are in business to make a profit, not to be fair to you. They want to pay you the least amount of money possible. They want to hold on to the money owed to you as long as they can. They will use any means necessary to pay you less. They will lie to you. They will attempt to obtain information they know they are not entitled to.
The Flood Law Firm protects you
When you hire The Flood Law Firm, you level the playing field. What sets us apart is our proven ability to win at trial. Most cases won’t go to trial, but our proven ability to try a case often forces the insurance company to settle your case for a fair amount. The simple truth is that insurance companies refuse to pay fair compensation unless forced to do so. The threat of a trial by dedicated and skilled trial lawyers is often the difference between fair settlements and unfair results. The lawyers at The Flood Law Firm have successfully settled thousands of contested car accident cases for their true value.
The Flood Law Firm is recognized by the legal community.
The attorneys at The Flood Law Firm are leaders in the legal community and trusted with referrals from other attorneys to represent their injured clients. Our partners all hold various executive and board positions in legal organizations on a local and national level. We frequently lecture on trial advocacy and civil justice across the state. Our attorneys and our firm are continually recognized by legal and community organizations.
