If You Were Injured in an Accident and Someone Else Was to Blame, Our Stratford Personal Injury Attorneys Can Help You Collect Just Compensation
Accidents happen, and when they do, they are usually someone’s fault. In legal terms, this fault is referred to as “negligence,” and Connecticut law entitles victims of negligence to recover just compensation for all of their financial and non-financial losses.
Unfortunately, the process of recovering just compensation is not nearly this straightforward. Typically, filing a personal injury claim means dealing with the negligent party’s insurance company, and the insurance companies will fight to deny victims’ claims by all means available. In order to recover just compensation, you need to be able to overcome their tactics, and you also need to know what constitutes a fair settlement or verdict in your case.

Injured in an Accident in Stratford? Here’s What You Need to Know
Dealing with the aftermath of an accident is complicated. At Berkowitz Hanna, we want to make the process of recovering just compensation as easy for you as possible. If you have been injured in Stratford, here’s what you need to know:
- The sooner you seek help, the better. This applies to obtaining treatment for your injuries and speaking with a personal injury lawyer about your legal rights. Delays can jeopardize your health and your financial recovery, and you do not want to give the insurance companies any excuse to deny your claim for compensation.
- Your losses could be substantial. Under Connecticut law, negligence victims are entitled to full compensation for their financial and non-financial losses. This includes current and future medical bills, loss of income, pain and suffering, emotional trauma, loss of consortium and companionship, and loss of enjoyment of life.
- The insurance companies won’t offer what they owe. If you receive a settlement offer after contacting your insurance company, this offer is likely to be far less than the full amount you are owed. In order to negotiate a fair settlement, you need to provide clear evidence of both the cause of the accident and the extent of your financial and non-financial losses.
- Mistakes can jeopardize your recovery. In addition to waiting longer than necessary, there are other mistakes that can jeopardize your recovery as well. These include things like giving recorded statements to the insurance companies, posting about the accident on social media, ignoring your doctor’s advice, and returning to work too soon.
- There is light at the end of the tunnel. Despite the challenges involved, you can recover just compensation for your accident-related losses. Our attorneys are here for you, and we are prepared to fight to win the financial compensation you deserve.
