Norwich, CT is a charming city in New London County. Despite its British name and the name of the county, it is steeped in American history. Originally settled in 1659, the city is widely known as the Rose of New England. Beautiful landscapes including awesome waterfalls, marinas, and rolling hills surround the city.
The heart of Norwich, CT is where three rivers – the Yantic, Shetucket, and Quinebaug – meet to form its harbor. From here, it becomes the Thames River, named after London, England’s River Thames. The river flows south into Long Island Sound that separates Connecticut from the southern part of New York State.
The city itself is thriving in 2021 and the local authority reports a positive outlook for business and residential growth. But life anywhere comes with its risks. If you have an accident that isn’t your fault you’re going to need a personal injury attorney.
Why You Need an Attorney to Help with a Claim
Often clients contact us to find out if they need us to help with a personal injury claim. They have insurance, but they’ve read that attorneys can help with claims. The reality is that even the most simple claims have hurdles that aren’t easy to overcome. Personal injury lawyers have legal training and experience that can make a huge difference.
One of the biggest issues is that insurance companies commonly don’t pay out what clients claim. They are generally quick to contact clients, saying they are available to sort out settlements for claims. Our experience is that they will certainly settle, but for as little as they can.
A good personal injury attorney in Norwich, CT will turn the tables and make sure you get the compensation due to you.
What many of our clients don’t realize when they first approach us, is the volume of evidence we need to gather. The devil is in the detail, and we need every possible document that will backup your claim. We need medical records, police and witness statements, invoices for every cost you have bills for.
