Auto accidents happen every day. Many times, the crash results in an annoyance; fender bender, repair shops, time off from work, dealing with insurance companies, etc. But sometimes auto accidents result in personal injury and have the potential to change your life. If you have been injured by the negligence of another driver, you have the right to collect fair compensation for your injuries. Sometimes personal injuries are minor, such as whiplash, contusions, or temporary aches and pains. Other times personal injuries can be severe; post-concussive syndrome, major soft tissue injuries, and even the loss of limbs or life.
When a traumatic personal injury takes place as the result of an auto accident, having the right legal representation can make a lot of difference. Our experienced personal injury attorneys will take the pressure off of you so you can concentrate on recovery and healing. We will work with the insurance companies and medical providers and any other party as necessary. You will be involved and kept informed every step of the way.
It is very important that you do not sign any waivers to your potential claim. Insurance companies will often attempt to settle your case for a few hundred dollars in exchange for your agreement to waive any potential liability claim against them. This is a big mistake because injuries may sometimes take time before they manifest. By signing a waiver, you forfeit your right to make a claim for any injuries that may be unknown at the time.
The law in Connecticut allows two years from the date of the incident to bring a civil claim. Don’t lose out on potential compensation. Call our personal injury attorneys immediately to schedule a free, no obligation consultation to evaluate you case and understand your options.
