Not everyone who has been in a car accident needs the help of a personal injury lawyer. That is why at McCoy and McCoy we don't take every case. If you don't need an injury lawyer, we tell you. So how do you decide if you need a lawyer for your accident case? There are a few things to consider. How do you feel? Are you injured? Injuries that result from an accident are not always obvious right away. Often times we find our clients unexpectedly feeling sore in their neck or back days after theircar accident. In addition, injuries can be "hidden." By this we mean, the pain from a broken bone, or deep laceration is more obvious than a soft tissue injury. Once the bone or cut has begun to heal, clients notice pain elsewhere in their body. Be aware of additional injuries as well.

These injuries may not have occurred upon impact, but developed because of the car accident. A knee injury sustained when a drivers leg was forced into the dashboard, caused him to limp. By favoring one leg when he walks, his lower back has come out of alignment and now he has developed a painful lower back injury. It is important to protect yourself when you are injured in a car accident as you may not always know the extent of your injuries. Secondly, what would it take to make you whole again? Money is the only form of compensation our system allows. Our injury firm the only way we can help you is to follow the Connecticut statutes and make the insurance company pay what they owe.

Statistics from the Insurance Resource Council proved that people who used an attorney received an average of 3½ times more money in settlement than those individuals who settled on their own.
No one wants to be injured and no one wants to file a lawsuit, but sometimes it is the only solution. Although not all injured victims will need the assistance of legal representation, we advise that you speak with an attorney before making that decision. You deserve to be adequately compensated for the harm that you have suffered, so it is important to make the right decisions early on.
