Recovering Compensation For Injured Drivers And Passengers
Medical care is the first priority following a car accident, regardless of the severity of the injuries suffered. However, while accident victims seek immediate treatment, insurance adjusters are often calling them to gather information and rush them into settling a claim. Insurance companies are in the business of making money and are not looking out for your interests.
When insurance companies and even the at-fault driver is out to get you to settle for less, you need someone in your corner you can depend on. We here at Sheffy, Mazzaccaro, DePaolo & DeNigris, LLP, have been representing the Southington community for decades, and we have made it our priority to protect the futures of our clients. The objective of our legal team is to act on your behalf and obtain a fair, just and reasonable settlement or jury award for your medical expenses, lost income, and pain and suffering.
Handling All Types Of Auto Accidents
While negotiated settlements can be viable options in resolving car accident claims, a trial can often provide the most favorable outcome in maximizing personal injury compensation. At our firm, we prepare all personal injury cases for trial in the event that negotiations fail.
Over the years, we have recovered millions of dollars for those who were injured in all types of car crashes, including:
- Rear-end collisions
- Head-on collisions
- T-bone accidents
- Drunk driving accidents
- Accidents with uninsured/underinsured motorists
Building compelling cases requires a deep analysis of evidence from the accident scene, police reports and medical records. It also requires testimony from accident reconstruction specialists and other experts whose opinions are valuable to a jury.
How Long Do I Have To File A Claim?
Every state imposes a time limit on how long a claimant has to file a claim in civil court. Connecticut law has a two-year statute of limitations to file a personal injury claim. This means that you have two years from the date of your injury to file a claim or you may lose your right to a case and compensation.
