Connecticut Personal Injury Attorney
People often say they want a bulldog for a lawyer. But if that’s all they look for, they may not ever find it. Slogans, billboards, and loud, tough-sounding commercials set an expectation, which can be a long way from reality. Yet, the very person who sells themselves as a bulldog simply can’t back up their “bark.” Thankfully, that is not the kind of lawyer you get with Anthony Sheffy.

How Can I Make Sure I Get Fair Compensation For My Injury In Connecticut?
Getting compensation for a personal injury is relatively easy; the hard part is getting fair compensation that will be sufficient to cover all your medical bills, lost wages and other costs.
Insurance adjusters are often quick to call after they learn about an injury. They may offer a settlement check right away. They are hoping to wrap the matter up quickly and cheaply, preying on an accident victim’s desire to get this all over with. If you get an offer, keep in mind that they may be underpaying.
A big part of a personal injury attorney’s role is to help you understand how much your case is worth. Whether you have been offered a settlement or not, Tony Sheffy can give you guidance so that you do not settle for less than you deserve. If appropriate, he can help you push back against the insurance company to get the full compensation they owe you. The No. 1 way you can make sure you get full compensation is by talking to an experienced lawyer before you sign a settlement check.
Settlement Vs. Trial In A Personal Injury Claim
At the end of the day, the object is to get you fair compensation as soon as possible. The majority of personal injury claims are settled. Trial only becomes necessary when the insurance company refuses to do the right thing, even after being shown why the amount of money being asked for is fair.
The benefit of having a trial attorney like Tony Sheffy on your side is not necessarily that your case will go to trial, but that it will be prepared for trial. The insurance company will know that if they do not do the right thing, they will have to face attorney Sheffy in court, where he has an impressive reputation for winning.
