If you need further help, just get in touch with us for a free consultation to discuss your case.

Why do I need a lawyer for personal injury claims?

In a personal injury suit, you are not just facing the party responsible for your injury; you are facing that party’s insurance company and its team of adjusters and attorneys. An individual should not try to handle a lawsuit without representation from an experienced lawyer, even if a case seems straightforward.

How much does a personal injury lawyer cost?

Personal injury cases, and workers’ compensation cases, are taken on a contingency-fee basis. This means that you pay nothing upfront. We only get paid if we secure compensation for you. Our fees will come from your settlement, jury award, or workers’ comp benefits.

How do I know if I have a personal injury case?

Did a negligent third party cause your accident or injury? Was it a preventable or foreseeable incident? If so, you may have a personal injury case. The best way to figure out whether you have a case is to speak with an experienced attorney. We offer no-cost, no-obligation consultations to discuss your claim. If you do not have a viable case, we will tell you upfront.

How much compensation will I receive in a personal injury case?

Many people wonder how much their case is worth. The answer is “it depends.” How severe are your injuries? Were you permanently injured or disfigured? Will you need long-term medical care? Will you be unable to return to work and support your family? Have you lost a wage-earning family member? These are some of the questions that you need to answer before we can value your case. You can talk with us about your potential case in a free consultation.

What is a third-party liability suit?

If you are injured on the job and a third party was responsible, you may be able to file a third-party liability suit. A negligent third party, who is not your employer, may be a party involved in the accident. This is often a contractor, a vendor, a property owner, a driver or other negligent party. You can sue this third party for compensation that is in addition to any workers’ compensation benefits you collect.

Can I sue my employer directly for a workplace injury?

No, you typically cannot sue your employer in Connecticut. Workers’ compensation is meant to be the “exclusive remedy” for injured workers to recover compensation after an accident on the job. If there is a negligent third party at fault, who is not your employer, you may recover additional damages from that party. We can help you determine if you have a third-party claim.

Is there a statute of limitations on vehicle accident claims?

Yes, in Connecticut, you have two years from the date of the accident to file a lawsuit against the negligent party. It is generally better to file the lawsuit as soon as possible so we can collect evidence and talk to witnesses while it is still fresh in their minds. If, however, your injury does not present immediately after the accident, you may need to file at a later date; just be sure it is within two years.

Will I get compensation if I was partially at fault for my car accident?

Connecticut has comparative negligence laws that protect accident victims’ rights to recover a portion of compensation for damages if they were partially at fault for a car accident. This may seem confusing, so feel free to discuss it with one of our attorneys. We have experience with all types of vehicle accidents and offer free consultations.
