Frequently Asked Questions

Here are the answers to our most commonly asked questions.

Do I Need A Lawyer?
Yes.  Although you can represent yourself, the insurance companies are in the business of making money – they do this by limiting their costs.  They may meet their legal obligation to assist you, but they will work hard to settle your case for as little as possible.  They spend time and money training their employees to work for them.  You need an attorney who will fight for you and protect your rights. You need a personal injury attorney who has the experience and resources to stand up to the insurance company to ensure you get what you are entitled.
An attorney will also handle all of the correspondence and negotiations with the insurance company.  In addition, a lawyer will ensure that all the legal requirements, such as the statute of limitations and notice requirements, are satisfied for your case.  If you miss a single deadline or fail to notify the proper parties, you may not be able to bring a claim at all.  Simply put, an attorney will protect your rights.

When Should I Contact A Personal Injury Attorney?

You should contact a lawyer shortly following an accident.  There may be evidence that an attorney can obtain or preserve that would otherwise disappear as time goes by.  An attorney can also assist you with the process and ensure that it goes as smoothly as possible from the very beginning.  If you do not call an attorney from the beginning, many times, it will be too late when you realize you needed one to ensure that your rights were protected.

What Is My Case Worth?

There is no easy answer to this question. The value of your case will depend on a large number of factors.  For example, the extent of your injuries, the length of your treatment, the severity of the crash, if your own negligence contributed to the accident, if you have any lifelong injuries and if you lost time from work.  These are only a few of the factors that will be considered.  An experienced personal injury lawyer will be able to properly evaluate your case to determine a fair value.

How Long Do I Have to File A Lawsuit?
The time frame in which you have to file a lawsuit will vary.  It is set out by what is called a statute of limitations.  In general, in Connecticut, you must bring a lawsuit for injuries sustained in a car accident within two years of that accident. (See Connecticut General Statute § 52-584.)
But, there are situations that have different rules.  The most frequent example is a car accident where an individual dies. In that scenario the lawsuit must be brought within two years of the date of death and not more than five years from the date of the car accident that caused the death. See Connecticut General Statute § 52-555. Please note that the two year statute of limitation does not mean you should wait a month, six months or longer to seek medical treatment.  Your failure to seek medical treatment immediately for your injuries will have a negative impact on your case.
In addition, any claim against a town or the State of Connecticut is subject to severe restrictions which limit the time to bring a lawsuit.  Similarly, there are strict notice provisions that are extremely time sensitive that must be complied with in order to assert a valid lawsuit.  These limitations and requirements are another reason you should hire a lawyer.
