Assistance from experts
We consult with knowledgeable and respected experts to assist with case preparation. Trauma doctors, chiropractors, forensics engineers, mechanics and collision reconstruction analysts lend their expertise to help our attorneys obtain the best possible settlements. At trial, these professional experts help by educating jurors about the specifics of the accident, what caused it and the injuries sustained by those involved.
Time is of the essence
It is important to speak to an attorney immediately following a traffic accident to ensure the preservation of crucial evidence and witness recollection. In addition, Connecticut law places time limits on filing an automobile accident claim. We are committed to the timely investigation of your claim. We even schedule appointments on the weekend or in the evening and will make hospital and home visits to injured patients when necessary.
