Over 1.9 million people reported injuries from traffic crashes in a recent year across the United States. Such injuries can be costly, requiring medical treatment, causing victims to miss work, or even leaving them with lifelong disabilities or disfigurement. If someone else is responsible for causing a crash, they should also be responsible for the harm they caused.
At Berman & Russo, we know that the auto accident claim process is rarely as simple as it should be. Parties and insurance companies try to avoid liability, and too many victims end up with less compensation than they deserve.
The best course of action is to seek the right legal guidance from a Manchester personal injury lawyer who can protect your rights.
What Kind Of Accident Did You Have?
Because there are so many different types of vehicles on our roads in the area, there are many types of crashes that occur. Our Manchester personal injury firm handles all types of auto accident claims, including the following.
By far, the most common motor vehicle accident is one involving two cars. Even in a two-car collision, things can get complicated and experience helps. Connecticut is a “fault” state for car accidents, so victims can file insurance claims against the at-fault driver. These claims can involve complex legal principles, but car accident attorneys understand how to address these. We know how to prove negligence and liability, deal with insurance companies, and we understand the injuries and resultant costs you may have incurred from your accident.
Motorcyclists often suffer serious injuries in crashes due to their relative lack of protection from a collision. Injured motorcyclists need experienced and knowledgeable attorneys due to the often high value of their claims, and because the other side may try to put a lot of the blame on the injured rider. Our lawyers know that motorcyclists deserve to ride safely, and they also deserve to fully recover financially if someone else crashes into them.
Trucks, especially large commercial trucks, can cause serious damage and injuries when they collide with smaller vehicles. The injuries caused by these trucks can be catastrophic and life-changing, and truck accident claims can be highly complex and technical. For this reason, you want to be sure that you work with an attorney experienced with truck accident cases. Such an attorney will fully understand your damages and the complications that can occur when a commercial vehicle is involved.
Boating is an enjoyable pastime for many, though boat crashes are a particularly dangerous type of motor vehicle accident. Most boat accidents happen during the daylight hours, on inland waterways, in great conditions, but an inexperienced or inattentive boat operator causes a crash. Some boating accidents involve one boat running into another, and these are those most likely to result in death or injury. There are also those where the boat runs into a fixed object such as a dock, jetty, or rocks. Flooding your boat and grounding it are also common boating accidents. Finally, sometimes sudden maneuvers or changes in speed result in someone falling off your boat. Any of these can cause damages best handled by an experienced attorney.
