Can I File a Lawsuit?
In Connecticut, you only have two years from the date of your injury to file a lawsuit. That’s why it’s so crucial that you contact an attorney as soon as possible.
A personal injury lawyer can determine if you qualify for lawsuit, and calculate how much you are owed from the negligent party. The insurance company may be offering you thousands of dollars, but your case could be worth ten times that. They’re hoping you won’t speak with a lawyer and find out.
Why Should I Speak With an Attorney?
Personal injury lawsuits are difficult and time-consuming. When you file one yourself, or hire the wrong firm, you run the risk of walking away with far less compensation than you deserve — or even nothing at all.
Here are some of the tasks an attorney will carry out so you can focus on healing and spending time with your loved ones:
- Gathering evidence such as photos, witness statements, medical records, etc.
- Hiring and consulting with experts (such as medical experts
- Negotiating with the insurance company’s attorneys
- Taking your case to trial (if a fair settlement can’t be reached)
For most people, having to do all this themselves would be extremely stressful. This is why it’s usually advisable to contact an attorney who specializes in these types of cases.
How Much Compensation Can I Recover?
Only an attorney can determine how much you’re owed. These are some of the most common types of compensation that they will seek to recover for you:
- Past and future medical expenses
- Lost wages
- Pain and suffering
- Emotional distress
- Funeral expenses (in the event of a loved one’s death)
Speaking broadly, they’ll fight to recover any cost that’s directly associated with your injury.
