1. Personal injury lawyers throughout the US tell us the types of cases they specialize in.

3. Your Accident.com lawyer reaches out immediately to discuss your case or schedule a free consultation.
Hiring a lawyer is an important decision if you have large medical bills, lost wages, or were injured due to negligence.
Accident.com connects you to a lawyer that makes sure you get paid everything you are entitled to. Your lawyer files your claim for you and then negotiates the amount of your settlement.
If the insurance company is believed to be acting in bad faith, your lawyer can request a trial and sue for a higher settlement.
Your lawyer will:
1) Request medical records for you.
2) Review police reports and medical charts.
3) Communicate back and forth with your insurance adjuster.
Accident.com lawyers do the heavy lifting, so you don’t have to.
People who hire attorneys statistically receive more money in their injury settlement. Even after paying the lawyer's contingency fee, people still walk away with more money than they probably would have received without an attorney.
You do not have to pay your attorney unless you win. When you win, your lawyer is paid a percentage of your final settlement.
This means the better you do, the better your lawyer does. It’s a win-win.
Bankruptcy, divorce, criminal charges, etc, can all affect your injury case. Your personal injury lawyer is familiar with different areas of law and can work with other attorneys if needed. Your Accident.com lawyer will work with your other lawyer (from other practice areas) to reach a solution in your best interest. A personal injury lawyer can also handle the insurance company's lawyers if your case goes past negotiations.
According to Connecticut law, the general statute of limitations for personal injury cases is set at two years. This means that, for most cases, you have up to two years from when you suffered your injury to bring your claim forward. >>Another thing to keep in mind is that Connecticut legally requires you to file a police report of a motor vehicle accident with in five days if the property damage is worth at least $1,000.
Connecticut law enforces the "51% Bar Rule", meaning victims can collect compensation if they are ruled 50% or less at fault. Otherwise, if you are determined 51% or more at fault, you will not be granted compensation.
Bicycles are legally considered vehicles in Connecticut, therefore cyclists must abide by the same laws for motorized vehicles. The determination of fault in an accident between a bicycle and motor vehicle comes down to which party acted with negligence. For example, if the driver of a car is texting while driving, the driver would likely be found negligent and at fault. >> (Note that using a cell phone while driving is illegal in Connecticut.)
How you write your advertising copy will be based on where you will place your ad. If it’s a billboard ad, you’ll need a super catchy headline.
For the Accident.com founders, that question was: “Why is getting paid by insurance companies such a frustrating experience?" Frustrating is an understatement. Navigating the world of insurance is confusing, stressful and a step backward in time (hello, call centers). Even when they know they are covered, people know insurance companies make more money if they pay you less.
