Named Zillow and Yelp’s most affordable U.S. suburb with a city feel in 2020, Waterbury, CT has a lot going for it. While not an urban job center, it boasts a wide and versatile range of amenities and facilities, including restaurants, sports venues, museums, and an enviable nightlife.
Many people move to Waterbury, CT, because it balances the affordability and space of the suburbs but still maintains a big-city feel. It’s also in the heart of the country and close to hiking trails and other outdoor adventure opportunities.
But, like everywhere in the world, people in Waterbury, CT have accidents, some of which are not their fault. If you are unlucky enough to be the victim of a serious injury, it can change your life forever. Costs can add up incredibly quickly, and while a good insurance policy can help you recover some of these, if it was someone else’s fault, you need a good personal injury lawyer to help you file a claim.
Why Do You Need an Attorney to Help With a Claim?
Even if personal injury claims are settled out of court, it is a legal process that can be considerably more complicated than many people realize. The attorneys at Lemberg Law have many years of experience helping injury victims by developing compelling personal injury claims and fighting for their rights.
We investigate our clients’ accidents, talk to witnesses, consult with experts if need be, and compile all the paperwork needed as evidence. This isn’t something that our injured clients can do themselves, especially when they are recovering from what might have been a traumatic, life-changing accident. Even relatively minor accidents are commonly physically painful and emotionally upsetting.
Negotiating with insurance companies can also be very stressful, especially when they maintain personal injury victims are not entitled to what they claim. Our lawyers work with insurance companies all the time and have an excellent track record when it comes to negotiating settlements.
More often than not, we settle claims out of court. But if defendants and/or insurance companies refuse to provide full and fair compensation, we will take the case to trial. This is something you shouldn’t even contemplate doing without a personal injury lawyer.
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 Waterbury, CT
Personal injury incidents and accidents happen suddenly, without warning, anywhere and at any time. Many happen on the road and involve every type of vehicle from motorcycles and cars to heavy-duty trucks. Bicycle and pedestrian accidents are also common.
More specifically, the cause of any of these ranges from distracted driving and negligence to driving under the influence (DUI). Sometimes road or traffic signal defects are the cause, and therefore the responsibility of state or local government agencies. If car parts are found to be faulty, our attorneys will usually hold the manufacturer liable.
Other causes include dog bites, which are more common amongst children than adults, and injury from dangerous or defective consumer products.
FAQs From Our Waterbury, CT Clients
Every personal injury case is different, even though basic elements are the same in every part of Connecticut. Here are a couple of questions our clients commonly ask. But, of course, our attorneys are available to answer your personal questions if these don’t help.
How do I know who to hold responsible for the personal harm I have suffered?
Sometimes it’s obvious, but it can be complicated. For instance, if you’ve been in an auto accident and the car that smashed into you was on the wrong side of the road, it’s likely that the driver of the other car is the guilty party. But if someone else in the car distracted the driver in some way, that person may be liable. Our attorneys will investigate the case and advise you.
How soon after being injured should I contact a personal injury lawyer?
The sooner the better, particularly if a state or local government vehicle is involved. In Connecticut, you generally have two years to file a claim. If a state or local government entity is involved, it could be less than 60 days. An attorney from Lemberg Law will advise.
