Unfortunately, motor vehicle accidents are unavoidable, regardless of how well we drive. Being an accident victim means that you are entitled to insurance coverage from several policies, along with compensation from the negligent driver if the insurance coverage is not enough.
Car accidents are a frequent source of injuries in Connecticut
Car accidents are a common reason for accidental deaths and personal injures in our state each year. Many of those involved in accidents may not realize how many parties are actually responsible for one’s loss of income, medical expenses or permanent disability. This is just one reason to contact us to figure out who is actually at fault and who is also responsible.
Should I settle with the insurance company?
Often insurance companies will try to settle fast. However, in most, if not all cases, that first settlement offer is extremely low, and it will not fully compensate one for their losses or injuries. This is why we always recommend that before accepting the insurance offer or signing anything, contact Suisman Shapiro Attorneys-at-Law in New London for a free consultation. We have experienced personal injury attorneys ready to evaluate current expenses and the potential future costs, like medical treatments, therapy or disability. This should all be considered when thinking about whether a settlement offer is fair.
Obtaining compensation for your losses
Immediately on our first consultation, we can begin to identify the types of compensation our clients are entitled after a motor vehicle accident. This also includes seeking immediate compensation for help, like going through one’s own personal insurance now to get medical care or starting a workers’ compensation claim if the car accident occurred while on the job. Coordinating and figuring out how to navigate these issues is what we do.
