You may have serious injuries. The other driver may be clearly at fault. But without a good lawyer on your side, you may not be fully compensated after being injured in a car accident. The insurance companies will treat you differently if you are not represented — namely in the form of low-ball settlements.
At the Law Offices of Jodi Zils Gagne, LLC, we know how insurance companies work because our lawyer formerly worked in insurance defense. Our Bristol law firm represents victims of motor vehicle accidents in Hartford County and surrounding Central Connecticut. We are confident that we can get a better result than you would get on your own, even after attorney fees.
Hartford Car Crash Injury Attorney
Personal injury lawyer Jodi Zils Gagne handles all types of traffic accidents, including:
- Car accidents (rear-end, head-on and intersection collisions)
- Truck accidents (18-wheelers and other commercial vehicles
- Accidents involving buses, taxis or ambulances
- Motorcycle accidents (including passenger injuries)
- Pedestrians or bicyclists hit by cars
We investigate promptly to establish liability. Ms. Gagne may go to the scene herself to take photos or we may call in a private detective to preserve important evidence and witness statements. We also advise clients on what to do (and what not to do) to help their case. You should see a doctor immediately, not only to get your injuries properly diagnosed and treated, but for medical documentation in your insurance claim or lawsuit.
We do not rush to file suit or settle the case too early, before the long-term impact of the accident is known. What if your disabling injury prevents you from returning to work? What if you will need surgery or other ongoing care? Many medical providers will agree to defer their bills until your personal injury case is settled.
Jodi Zils Gagne draws on her experience on both sides of insurance litigation to work up a fair claim for damages. She knows what your claim is worth to the insurance companies and how they assess the risks of going to trial against the costs of settling the case. She is prepared to present the case to a jury to get justice, and that diligence and persistence usually pays off for our clients.
