Don’t Let the Insurance Company Win
First settled in 1639, Milford probably got its name because of its location. It is next to where the first mill, built for water power, was in the shallows of the Wepawaug River.
Today, Milford, CT still has the charm of an early English settlement. The gorgeous stone memorial bridge that replaced the mill is still a feature of the town. But the 17-mile coast that offers sporting and leisure attractions is now likely more appealing to most residents and visitors.
Life is good in Milford, CT, but as attorneys, we are very aware that things can go wrong. Unfortunately, when it comes to personal injury incidents, there are often innocent victims. If you find yourself a victim due to someone else’s negligence, you will need an experienced personal injury lawyer to help you.
Here’s why you will need a lawyer and how Lemberg Law might be able to help you.
How a Milford, CT Lawyer Can Help With Your Claim
It doesn’t matter what type of incident or accident causes your injuries, there will always be a lot of paperwork involved. In this situation, the last thing you’re going to want to do is to sign forms, make statements, and provide medical records and other proof for insurance companies.
Anyone who has been in this position will tell you how disruptive it can be. Circumstances differ, but often victims need medical care, they can’t work, and they can’t take care of their families.
You might think that you can cope on your own. But can you? Here are six questions to ask yourself:
- Can you deal with this alone?
- Do you understand the statute of limitations?
- Do you have the knowledge to file your own personal injury claim?
- Can you accurately assess your damages?
- Will your insurance company have your best interests at heart?
If you answer “no” to just one of these questions, you need a personal injury lawyer to help you.
Ultimately, you don’t have to deal with personal injury on your own. An experienced, empathetic attorney will help to assess your damages accurately. An attorney will also ensure that you get compensation for both tangible and intangible damages. These will range from medical expenses and loss of income to pain and suffering and loss of consortium for family members.
An experienced personal injury attorney will compile all the necessary paperwork and file your claim the right way. Your lawyer will negotiate a settlement with those responsible for your accident, or the insurance company covering the claim. If there is no acceptable settlement, your attorney will take your case to court.
