One of the most common types of personal injury cases are those that involve car accidents or other vehicle accidents. Busy drivers make mistakes, or could be drunk, distracted or involved in talking on a cell phone or texting. Most people who are injured are law-abiding, but have the bad luck to be sharing the street or highway with another driver that fails to exercise reasonable care for the safety of others.
Hartford has weather issues that make driving dangerous with icy and snowy roads. In these conditions, the speed limit is too high to operate a vehicle safely. Nonetheless, some drivers fail to slow down, creating huge, multi-vehicle accidents. Any driver who has been negligent in operating their car, truck, SUV or van and has caused a serious injury accident must be held accountable. Speeding, aggressive or drunk drivers pose a danger to innocent drivers and their passengers, and there is no way to predict their actions in advance. The results can be devastating, with permanent injuries, loss of life, disfigurement, broken bones, soft tissue injuries and many other types of injuries.
The families of victims are rarely thinking about legal issues, as the focus is on the health, and sometimes the life, of their loved one. As times passes, and medical bills start coming in, often ranging into the hundreds of thousands of dollars within a short period of time, thoughts may turn to filing a legal action against the negligent driver. In fact, you are far better served to get involved in filing a claim early after the accident. Get legal counsel to represent you. An attorney can manage all the details, and it is fully established that with a personal injury lawyer that is experienced, a much higher settlement or verdict can be achieved. We think you deserve that.
