How Our Injury Law Firm in Hartford Can Help

The aftermath of an accident can leave you with physical pain, emotional stress, and difficult financial struggles, all as you attempt to recover from your injuries.

Amid this, you’re expected to deal with insurance companies with a vested interest in giving you the smallest payout possible.

You need a trusted injury law firm in Hartford to alleviate the burden of dealing with insurance companies while ensuring your rights are protected, and you receive the compensation you deserve.

Connecticut law allows you to seek recovery for economic and noneconomic damages for the injuries you sustained in an accident.

Economic damages are clear-cut. The law defines these as reasonable and necessary medical care, custodial care, rehabilitative services, and lost earnings. Examples of economic damages include:

  • Hospital bills
  • Transportation for medical care
  • Physical therapy
  • Occupational therapy
  • Medical devices and equipment
  • Future medical expenses related to the accident
  • Past and future lost wages
  • Property damage

Non-economic damages are a bit harder to classify, such as physical pain and suffering and mental and emotional suffering.

A sudden accident or injury can result in weeks or months of physical pain, and that, combined with the emotional stress, can take a substantial toll on your life. Noneconomic damages should adequately compensate you for what you’ve gone through.

Important Initial Advice for After Your Accident

You’ve likely found yourself reading this because you, or someone you care about, experienced injuries caused by the actions or negligence of another. It all feels overwhelming, and you need expert advice about what to do.

Whether the injury was the result of a car accident, truck accident, slip and fall, or another cause—below are tips to protect your personal injury case:

  • Visit a healthcare professional right away and adhere to their professional guidance. Hopefully, you received emergency treatment for your injury, but you must follow up for the appropriate care. Failing to follow up or not adhering to medical guidance can undermine the severity of your injuries, and insurance companies will try to use that against you.
  • Be careful when communicating with an insurance company. You are likely in a vulnerable place, dealing with pain, anxiety, and stress made worse by knowing that almost anything you say may be manipulated against you. Contact the Law Office of Michael L. Chambers, Jr. for advice on what to say. Call us at 860-231-9535.
  • Refrain from posting anything on social media. Social media is often a primary means of communicating with our friends and family, and you may feel the need for support after an accident. Unfortunately, a seemingly harmless photo or comment can jeopardize your case. Protect yourself by refraining from posting online until your case is settled.

Insurance companies will often pressure you to settle your case as soon as possible, and it can be tempting to get it over with. We encourage you to resist the temptation of accepting the initial settlement, as these offers undervalue the compensation you rightfully deserve. Instead, please consult us for a free evaluation of your claim.

Don’t Miss Your Claim Deadline!

The statute of limitations is the amount of time the law allows you to file a claim. Connecticut’s statute of limitations is two years from the date the injury occurs or is discovered. After the statute of limitations expires, you can no longer bring legal action.

Though the law gives you two years, we suggest you contact a Hartford injury attorney much sooner. Over time, it becomes harder to prove your case. Memories fade for witnesses, evidence becomes harder to gather, and records get misplaced.

Essential Evidence

Gathering evidence is essential to a successful case; the more relevant evidence, the better.

The following are the most common and key pieces of evidence needed:

  • Police/accident report
  • Medical records relating to your injuries and treatment
  • Other relevant, professional testimonies
  • Your personal statement
  • Testimonies from family and friends about how the accident has affected your life
  • Eyewitness testimonies
  • Photo or video evidence of the accident (dashcam footage works!)
  • Accident recreation models

While you can collect this evidence yourself, speed is of the essence, and it’s hard to do this while you’re injured.

This is why hiring the best personal injury lawyer in Hartford, CT to take the burden away is a good idea!

What Can I Expect to Pay?

We use a contingency fee structure for personal injury cases. For you, that means we don’t collect anything until we’ve won your case.

Our services are designed to reduce the stress and burden on you, allowing you to concentrate on your physical and emotional recovery. Our skilled team will strive to be an invaluable resource to you during this difficult time.

Contact us today to set up an initial consultation to evaluate your case and decide the best path forward. Our team is ready to carry the burden of getting the compensation you deserve while you focus on your recovery.

Hartford Connecticut Car Accident Lawyer
Car Accidents
In the past few years, the State of Connecticut reported more than 350,000 traffic crashes involving over 820,000 people. About 27,000 of these crashes happened in Hartford and the surrounding areas, involving 57,600 of our neighbors and leaving many of them with injuries and overwhelming losses. Our law firm is here to help you pick up the pieces after a serious crash by seeking the compensation you deserve from the at-fault parties.
Hartford Connecticut Motorcycle Accident Injuries
Motorcycle Accident
Connecticut has more than 85,000 registered motorcycles, and many more out-of-state visitors ride through the state during the year. Motorcyclists are always at risk of suffering severe injuries due to their relative lack of protection. Even a DOT-approved helmet cannot protect you from head trauma 100 percent of the time.

If a driver hits you on your motorcycle or you crash due to defective parts or dangerous roads, you should look into seeking compensation from the at-fault party.

Hartford Connecticut Pedestrian Accident Injuries
Pedestrian Accident
Hartford is a walking-friendly city, though anyone walking is at risk of a pedestrian accident and injuries. Distracted drivers are often responsible for these crashes, but other forms of negligence can also lead to severe injuries to pedestrians. Pedestrians often need emergency medical help and ongoing care for one or multiple traumatic injuries.
Hartford Connecticut Truck Accident Injuries
Truck Accident
​Connecticut sees its share of commercial truck crashes and many of these result in serious injuries or fatalities. Two-thirds of fatal injuries from truck accidents in the state happen to occupants of other vehicles, which are generally much smaller than semi-trucks. There are many different causes of truck accidents, and liable parties can include the truck driver, trucking company, and others.
Hartford Connecticut Wrongful Death
Wrongful Death
In the worst situations, an accident results in a tragic fatality, leaving close family members with financial and emotional losses. The law allows qualified individuals to file a claim for wrongful death to hold at-fault parties accountable for their losses and seek justice. Our firm assists grieving families with the legal process.
Hartford Connecticut TBI Head Injuries
Brain Injury / TBI
Brain injuries are often catastrophic conditions that can leave you with permanent impairments. The effects of a brain injury can include medical expenses, lost income if you cannot work, rehabilitation costs, assistance at home, cognitive or physical disabilities, and much more. These complex injuries lead to complex claims, and you need sophisticated legal representation.
Hartford Connecticut Medical Negligence Injury
Medical Malpractice
Medical professionals have a strict standard of care for good reason, as we put our health and safety in their hands. If a doctor, nurse, pharmacist, or hospital falls below this standard of care, you can suffer serious and life-changing injuries. These can happen due to misdiagnosis, surgical errors, medication errors, birth trauma, and more. Holding medical professionals accountable is a difficult feat, and you need the right legal assistance.

FAQs

Do I Have a Personal Injury Case?
Whether you have a personal injury depends on the facts of your case. If you have suffered an injury to your body or property from an incident, then that is half of the equation as to whether you have a case. The other half of the equation is whether your injury was the result of someone else’s fault.

To determine fault, we look at whether someone else’s negligence caused your accident and injuries. This could be a distracted driver who failed to stop and crashed into your car or a business that failed to warn of wet floors, leading to your slip and fall. If one or more other individuals or companies were negligent, then you have the right to file a claim against those parties to seek compensation for your personal injury.

Do I Need a Lawyer to Pursue a Personal Injury Case?
There is no legal requirement that you must have a lawyer representing you to obtain compensation for your injuries and loss. However, having an experienced personal injury lawyer to evaluate your case and offer advice on how best to proceed with your claim is critical in making sure you get maximum compensation.

A lawyer can also provide insight and strategies from their experience to make the best case for your compensation. Insurance companies can be difficult, and they will try to avoid paying you. Having legal help is the best way to obtain maximum compensation as soon as possible.

How Soon After an Accident Should I Contact a Lawyer?
You should contact a personal injury lawyer as soon as possible after your accident or after your loved one has been injured or killed because of an accident. It is advantageous for you to do this because the sooner you retain an attorney, the sooner we can start investigating your case on your behalf.

If witnesses saw the accident, an investigator can contact them, and their memories of the events will be fresher closer to the accident time than later. Witnesses may also move. Evidence also starts to disappear or becomes harder to find soon after an accident. So, the sooner you contact a lawyer after the accident, the better.

How Much Can I Get for My Injuries?
Unfortunately, this is not a question with an easy answer—rather, the answer depends on varying considerations that may differ from case to case. However, in general, an experienced lawyer can give you a close estimation after conducting an extensive review and investigation of your case.

Facts that that may affect how much you ultimately receive include:

  • Whether you were at fault or partially at fault
  • The severity of your injuries
  • Your prognosis and permanent effects from your injury
  • Your age
  • Your current earnings and how your injury is affecting your ability to enjoy life
How Long Will It Take to Settle My Case?
There is no set time for how long it will take to settle any case as too many variables come into play to keep to any timeline. However, you can generally expect your case to settle after you have undergone all needed treatment and reached a point where it will be easy to determine the level of impact more accurately on your life brought about as the result of the accident and injury.

How long that takes, in turn, depends on the assessment and judgment of the medical professionals providing you with the care and treatment. Once a lawyer has thoroughly reviewed your case, our office will be able to give you a better estimate based on experience with similar cases we have handled.

How do I Choose a Personal Injury Lawyer?
You would need to do some basic homework and find out a few things about any lawyer before you decide to retain them. Fortunately, this information is readily available either on the lawyer’s website or through public searches online.

Things to consider when deciding who best to hire from a large number of options are:

  • Experience. Does the attorney possess experience handling a case like yours?
  • Trust. Can you trust the attorney? Do you feel
  • Communication. Does the attorney have an effective and prompt communication system to keep you fully informed throughout the representation?
  • Sympathy. Does the attorney have or show sympathy to you and your case?
How Much Will It Cost Me to Hire a Personal Injury Lawyer?
How much a lawyer will bill for representing a client depends on several factors, including the nature and complexity of your case. Our personal injury lawyers, however, will only take a pre-agreed-upon percentage of any settlement, and that only happens if we recover compensation for you.

An attorney may expend their own money to cover costs associated with the case and take the total out of the settlement. This means clients dealing with injuries do not also have to worry about coming up with the money for legal help.
