You are reading this book because you have been hurt, or a loved one has been injured or killed in an accident. You may have a life altering, catastrophic injury. You may have a Connecticut workers’ compensation claim, personal injury, or wrongful death case. Or, you may be reading this to educate and prepare yourself in the event you find yourself injured and needing guidance and assistance. More than anything, you want to heal and get back to your life. But someone is at fault for the injuries and pain, and for your loss of life enjoyment. If you have been injured in the course of your employment, you may be wondering who is supposed to pay the bills. What if things do not get better? What will happen if I cannot return to the same kind of work? Your days were full and busy before the accident — where will you find the time it takes to deal with insurance companies? How can you get fair compensation for all you have to go through? Even more catastrophically, what if a loved one has lost their life in an accident or as a result of someone else’s negligence? What happens now?
When you don’t know what to expect, it’s too easy to imagine the worst. No matter how you have been injured or what has occurred, you should talk to an experienced personal injury attorney and get a free consultation without obligation. The rules of ethics that govern attorney conduct require that you be presented with and sign a written retainer agreement which sets forth the subject matter of the representation along with the fees and costs to be charged. Get it in writing!
