At Berman & Russo, our Vernon car accident lawyers understand all the physical, emotional, financial, and legal challenges injured victims face after a car crash. While trying to recover from your injuries, you must also deal with the uncertainty and financial stress of covering your medical bills and related expenses.
All of this can be overwhelming. Additionally, the statute of limitations in Connecticut determines the time you have to take legal action. We will evaluate the facts of your claim and fight for the compensation and justice you deserve from all the at-fault parties liable for your losses by:
Investigating The Accident
Your Vernon car accident lawyers will thoroughly investigate your case to determine all the factors that caused and contributed to the crash. The cause of an accident may seem obvious. Contributing factors to any accident might include a defective vehicle or component, poor road conditions, or driver distraction.
Assessing The Impact Of Your Car Accident-Related Losses
After collecting the evidence needed to support your claim, your lawyer will determine all your losses, such as your medical expenses, lost earnings, emotional distress, property damage, etc., to calculate exactly how much you need to pay for all your damages. Once your lawyer comes up with an accurate calculation of your damages, they will use this number as a guide when negotiating a settlement with the insurers of the liable party.
An accurate estimate of your damages will help you understand settlement negotiations and offers, so you receive the highest compensation possible.
Dealing With Discussions And Settlement Negotiations
The initial settlement offer from the insurer will likely be much less than your claim is worth. They’re hoping you’ll accept their offer and give up your right to claim further damages. Your Vernon car accident lawyer will update you on all discussions and negotiations with the at-fault party’s insurers and lawyers. Once the insurer makes an offer, your lawyer will discuss the pros and cons of the offer and whether other legal options may be better.
Fighting For Your Rights In Court
Most personal injury claims involving car accidents settle without going to trial, provided the liable parties and their insurers are willing to pay the real value of the claim. In some situations, however, it might be necessary for the injured person to pursue a lawsuit against the negligent parties to ensure they get compensated fairly. Should a lawsuit become necessary, your Vernon car accident lawyer will use their resources, skills, and experience to secure the best possible results for your case.
