Why You Need an Attorney to Help with Your Personal Injury Claim
You didn’t anticipate a personal injury claim, but you’ve got insurance. So, why should you need a lawyer?
The sad reality is that insurance companies do everything they can to ensure that they pay as little as possible. If they can minimize your claim, they will. But a good personal injury law firm will know their game and will do what they can to maximize your claim. We negotiate for you.
There is also a multitude of documents that you need to produce. These range from medical records and bills to witness statements and possibly police reports.
There’s nothing to stop you from getting these unless of course, you are dealing with severe physical injury and/or emotional trauma. But, in any case, a personal injury lawyer knows exactly what you will need for your claim.
A lawyer also knows what to do if someone who is responsible for your accident refuses to pay your claim. Sometimes, it means taking the claim to court.
Tell us what happened. We’ll tell you what you can expect to recover for your injuries.
We fight to win.
Common Causes of Personal Injury in Meriden, CT
When we talk about personal injury claims we mean injuries were due to the actions of another person. In other words, your injury isn’t your fault.
While there is no doubt that truck, car, motorcycle, and bicycle accidents rank right at the top of personal injury claims, there are other common causes. In Meriden, CT, dog bites and other animal attacks, as well as defective products, including appliances, are also common causes.
Construction and industrial accidents are also commonly caused by other people’s negligence.
This means that another driver, who might have been drunk or speeding, or a manufacturer that produced a faulty and therefore dangerous product, was the cause.
