New Britain, CT is the 8th largest city in the state. Located halfway between Boston and New York City, it is in a part of Hartford County once known as the Great Swamp.
Named New Briton in 1754, it became a town a century later and then a city in 1871 when it first got running water. Industrial development was thriving. By the turn of the 20th century, its nickname, Hardware City, was well established.
This was thanks to Frederick Stanley (the city’s first mayor) and William Hart’s Stanley Works. The little business grew from a small hardware shop in 1843 to one of the most successful hardware companies in the world. Today, the company, now Stanley Black & Decker, is still headquartered in New Britain.
More than 74,000 live in New Britain today. So, it stands to reason there will be unfortunate accidents when people get hurt. If this happens to you, you need a lawyer on your side. Lemberg Law will hold the at-fault party responsible and claim compensation on your behalf.
Why You Need an Attorney to Help With a Personal Injury Claim
When attorneys talk about “personal injury”, they are using a legal term. It describes any injury-causing accident due to someone else’s negligent or reckless actions.
They may not be part of the accident. For example, personal injury may result from defective products or a dog bite. But if that person owns the dog or manufactured the defective product, an attorney can hold the person liable.
Personal injury attorneys understand the law and know what they need to file claims. They will handle all the paperwork. They will also deal with police investigators, the at-fault person, and any insurance companies involved.
Our clients often think that there isn’t a need to involve attorneys in insurance claims. But our experience shows that insurance companies aim to pay out as little as possible. A good personal injury lawyer will claim as much as possible. The actual amount depends on the circumstances.
