SHOULD YOU HIRE A

CONNECTICUT PERSONAL INJURY LAWYER?

Many personal injury victims wonder if obtaining the representation of a Connecticut injury lawyer is worth it. Individuals who suffer a personal injury typically obtain substantially more compensation than those who attempt to settle their claim on their own. Even though you will pay your personal injury lawyer in Connecticut for their services, they typically increase financial recovery enough that their services pay for themselves and more.

 

A Connecticut personal injury lawyer can bring a lot of value to your claim. Recovering from a personal injury is often a difficult journey. It isn’t generally one that you want to take while trying to represent your own legal interests. 

When you hire a Connecticut personal injury attorney, you can focus on your recovery and healing while they do the heavy lifting for you. Your lawyer can:

As you can see, personal injury attorneys in Connecticut (CT) have countless tasks. At Bert McDowell Injury Law, we will do whatever it takes to get you rightful compensation. Managing your claim on your own isn’t recommended for several reasons as it can be time-consuming and burdensome. Most injury victims don’t have personal injury legal experience. Lack of expertise, time, and effort can be detrimental to your personal injury claim. Pursuing your claim with representation from an experienced Hartford personal injury lawyer will likely result in less stress during this process and increase your chances of obtaining fair compensation for your damages.

When Should You Contact a Personal Injury Lawyer in Connecticut (CT)?

Ideally, you should contact a seasoned personal injury lawyer in Connecticut (CT) right away after sustaining such an injury. Seek emergency medical care if necessary and then contact an injury attorney as soon as possible. There are several reasons for this:

The Statute of Limitations

Different types of personal injuries have various statutes of limitations. These are time limits in which injury victims can file a civil claim. In Connecticut, most personal injury claims must be filed within two years of the date of the injury, the date the victim became aware of the injury and the date the victim should have reasonably been aware of the injury.

 

If a personal injury claim isn’t filed within the legal deadline, the victim does not have a right to pursue their claim in court. While two years might seem like a long time, your Connecticut injury attorneys will need time to negotiate and prepare your case. The more time you can give them by contacting them as soon as you can after your personal injury, the better.

Preserving Evidence

The success of your personal injury case depends on the evidence and your burden of proof. When you hire an experienced personal injury attorney, they go to work to gather and preserve valuable evidence in your claim, including witness testimony, accident reports, videos, and photographs. If you wait too long to seek legal help, some of this evidence might be lost or destroyed, which won’t help you get the compensation you deserve. When you reach out to our Connecticut personal injury law firm, we know the necessary evidence in your claim and will get to work finding it and preserving it.

Protection from Insurance Companies

Without the help of a Connecticut attorney, you are vulnerable to insurance company tactics. While their job is to pay you fair compensation for your injuries, their goal is to pay you as little as possible or deny your claim entirely. They may have an adjuster contact you and attempt to get you to settle for a minimal amount shortly after you file a claim. They may ask for a recorded statement in which they try to get you to say something detrimental to your claim. They may delay your claim or unfairly and illegally deny it. 

With a Bridgeport injury lawyer on your side, you won’t need to speak directly to anyone from the insurance company unless they are present with you. They take care of most communication with them. This protects you from saying anything that might harm your claim. Insurance companies don’t typically try to delay, unfairly deny claims, or make lowball offers when a claimant has legal representation.
