Do I Need A Personal Injury Lawyer?

Many people immediately consider contacting an attorney when they are involved in an accident caused by another party’s negligence, but some people tend to believe that they will be able to keep more money for themselves by handling their case on their own. This approach usually does not end well for a couple of reasons.

First, you will usually be contacted by an insurance company for the negligent party soon after your accident. An agent for the insurer will usually seem friendly and helpful, but you should decline any invitation to provide a recorded statement.

While discussing your accident may seem harmless, the questions you will be asked are designed to elicit damaging responses that can be used against you. In other cases, an insurance company may offer you a lump sum settlement to resolve your case.

Some people who are frightened that they may not be offered anything else quickly accept these offers only to realize that they will not be enough to cover all of the future expenses relating to a victim’s care. Jonathan Perkins Injury Lawyers will work tirelessly to make sure that you get all of the compensation you need or deserve.

Hartford was also among the top four towns with the highest per capita bicycle crash rates and the highest volume of bicycle crashes over the four years.

Park Street in Hartford was a specific location identified in the study as a location that should be the subject of a follow-up pedestrian crash study.
