Benefits of Having a Connecticut Personal Injury Lawyer

Many accident victims grapple with handling the claims process themselves or seeking legal representation. The reality is the insurance claim process can be incredibly challenging. Negotiating with insurance companies on your own often results in fewer settlements than you deserve.

Here’s how Attorney Kerry Socha can make a significant difference:

  • Identifying All Liable Parties: Determining who is responsible for your injuries can be complex. Kerry Socha will meticulously investigate the accident to identify all potentially liable parties, ensuring you receive the compensation you deserve.
  • Calculating Your Claim’s Value: Calculating damages goes beyond adding medical bills. Your attorney will factor in lost wages, future lost income potential, pain and suffering, and other losses. Many people need to pay more attention to the actual value of their claims, leading to inadequate settlements and out-of-pocket expenses.
  • Standing Up to Insurance Companies: While small claims might be settled quickly, disputes often arise in significant compensation cases. This is especially true when there’s a contested fault, complex injuries, or disagreements with insurance adjusters. An experienced attorney will fight aggressively to protect your rights and ensure you receive a fair settlement.
  • Handling Claim Denials: If your claim gets denied, the insurance company will likely reverse its decision with new evidence. An attorney can analyze your case, gather additional evidence, and fight for the compensation you deserve.

Getting the Right Medical Treatment

If you’ve been seriously injured, prioritizing proper medical care is paramount. This applies even if you received initial treatment from paramedics, an urgent care center, or the emergency room. It’s vital to follow all recommended treatment plans, whether by your primary care physician or a specialist like an orthopedist, physical therapist, or neurologist. Medical advice is crucial for your recovery and strengthens your personal injury case.

Why Choose Socha Law?

My husband was in a car accident in March 2020 that was not his fault. We hired a personal injury lawyer that did absolutely nothing for almost 3 years. We found Kerry and she had his case settled within about 6 months. She was wonderful at communicating what needed to be done on our end and keeping us abreast of the case. We HIGHLY recommend her and her skill as a personal injury attorney.

Attorney Socha represented my family in a small claims case, I am absolutely amazed with the wonderful job she did in representing us is such a small case, she went over and above, dotted her “i” and crossed her “t”! If we ever needed representation in a court of law on any large or small case, she would be the attorney we would call.
