attorney consultationFiling a lawsuit is probably not the first thing you think about after being involved in a serious accident. However, a lawsuit could allow you to recover compensation for any damages you suffered in the accident.

Even though you are not required to hire a personal injury lawyer in Connecticut to represent you in your claim, there are many reasons why you need an experienced attorney throughout the legal process. 

Legal Knowledge

An experienced lawyer has detailed knowledge of all aspects of personal injury claims, including things like:

  • Statutes of limitations
  • Notice requirements
  • Aggravation of preexisting injuries
  • Compensation for future medical care
  • Other laws and regulations relevant to your claim

A skilled injury lawyer knows these things and how they apply to your particular case.

Personal injury lawyers also have the knowledge, time and resources to conduct thorough investigations of legal claims to build cases that have a high likelihood of success.

Determining Fair Compensation

The more severe your injury, the more compensation you could be entitled. The severity of your injury is determined by:

  • How long it will take to recover
  • The amount of medical bills from your injury
  • The injuries you sustained

A reputable lawyer will know how to analyze those different factors to determine how much compensation you should receive.

If necessary, your lawyer can consult medical experts to determine how your injuries affect you. That will help your lawyer determine a fair amount of compensation for the damages you have suffered.

Negotiating Compensation

Insurance companies and attorneys for the accused will do whatever they can to avoid paying fair compensation to victims of accidents.

That is why you need an injury lawyer at your side who has years of experience negotiating fair compensation with insurers and other lawyers.

An experienced attorney will have your best interests in mind throughout the process and will not settle for lowball offers.

If an attorney cannot negotiate a fair settlement, he or she has the resources to take your case to trial to pursue justice.
