Get the Compensation You Deserve
The good news is that you may be entitled to compensation for your lost income, medical expenses, pain and suffering, and other economic and non-economic damages related to your accident. However, the legal process can be daunting. When you have a valid claim, insurance companies will try everything in their power to deny you. They will often throw out any defense they can think of to shift blame to you and deny your claim. This is where we step in. We’re here to provide you with the legal defense for a fair and reasonable claim settlement.
Furthermore, many clients injured by accident do not seek medical attention promptly because they are concerned about the cost of treatment — especially if they lack insurance. However, if you have a letter of guarantee from one of our personal injury lawyers in CT, many medical experts can treat you and wait to be paid until you get your compensation. Medical expenses should not be a financial burden. With knowledgeable and experienced representation, you will be able to seek proper compensation for medical or hospital bills. If you have been injured in an accident or suffered a loss, it is imperative that you get in contact with our personal injury attorneys in CT as soon as possible.

What Does a CT Personal Injury Attorney Do?
The first thing we do is to thoroughly evaluate your case to create the best strategy for winning it. We’ll go to examine the scene, gather relevant information from witnesses, ask for documentation, meet with medical professionals, and review the necessary documents and calculate damages before filing a claim. If we need to work with experts to reconstruct the scene, we’ll do that too, because all we want is for you to get through all of these and move forward with your life once again.
However, that is not all — we’ll have to prepare our defense for you before meeting with the defendant’s lawyer. When the other party won’t negotiate, and litigation is the only option (usually larger businesses and insurance companies won’t easily come to a settlement), our attorneys are poised and ready to fight for you in court. We are familiar with the tricks and tactics they use to avoid paying a reasonable settlement. Thus, you can trust us to fight for your right!
The Lawsuit Process
Once you consult a medical expert and are ready to seek a lawsuit, contacting a CT personal injury attorney is the next step. We’ll closely work with you to build a strong defense through our strategic approach. We’ll thoroughly examine your case from every angle to strengthen your lawsuit. Then, we’ll send a “demand letter” to your insurance or defendant. If the other party isn’t tough on the case, we’ll get a settlement in this step. However, insurance companies can reject the settlement. When this happens, it’s time for us to file a lawsuit.
If a lawsuit is filed, attorneys of both parties will look into all possible documents that could help in the settlement. Meanwhile, if the other party still rejects your claim, the next step is trial in the courtroom. This is where we use the best of our abilities to defend you, and try to show how the defendant is responsible for your injury. Our law firm has decades of experience taking our clients’ cases to a jury. Contact us today as your trusted personal injury attorney.
At the Law Offices of Robert F. Dwyer, Jr., LLC you’ll get sound advice and expert representation on any issue you have that requires knowledge of the law. We are masters in personal injury but also have the knack for family law, drug crimes, tax law, and legal advice.

Many injury victims believe they cannot get adequate medical care because they do not have health insurance. However, there are many competent and skillful medical professionals who will wait to be paid at the successful conclusion of your case directly from the at-fault party with a letter of guarantee from our firm.
Even with health insurance, medical costs can be enormous. You may have expensive co-pays, deductibles, out-of-pocket costs, and uncovered procedures or prescriptions. With an attorney’s guidance however, you may be able to recover compensation for these medical expenses and lost wages.
You may be wondering how much your personal injury case is worth. The value of your case depends on a few key factors: the circumstances of your accident, the severity of your injuries, and limits on insurance coverage, among other things. The primary driver behind case value is how much the plaintiff could get in the damages, including:
- Past medical bills;
- Future medical bills;
- Lost wages;
- Loss of earning capacity;
- Loss of consortium
- Pain and suffering.
Some of those considerations might not have a clearly articulated value at first. However, they could offer an estimated case value after assessing your medical records, police records, statements, and other evidence, such as the progression or regression of your physical and mental state after an accident. The whole picture can provide a window into what to expect from a personal injury lawsuit.
Your lawyer and the lawyer’s legal team are at the front lines of your fight to get the compensation you deserve in a personal injury suit.
First, they will assess your case to best determine how to fight for you. They may:
- Gauge the depth of your injuries and the negligent circumstances involved;
- Investigate the scene of the accident;
- Question witnesses;
- Request documentation;
- Work with medical experts;
- Review documents, photos, and videos; and
- Work with experts who can reconstruct the scene of the accident.
That’s not all, though. They will use all of that information to go head-to-head with the defendant’s attorneys to get you the best compensation possible. Oftentimes this happens in a settlement meeting, but if the corporation or insurance company won’t budge, our attorneys are trained, experienced, and ready to go to court.
After you consult a medical professional and start considering a personal injury lawsuit, there are a handful of standard steps to take. These are central to cases involving motor vehicles, slip and falls, and other personal injury accidents.
Reach Out to a Lawyer: Contact an attorney with years of experience handling personal injury cases. As mentioned above, they have a strategic approach toward assessing cases to determine whether you are able to pursue a personal injury claim and how much you could get in a case.
Building Your Case: After you sign a retainer agreement, your attorney and legal team will begin looking over every aspect of your case — your injuries and the circumstances that caused them, the evidence, your employment history and wages, your family’s circumstances, and any other elements that will bolster your claim.
Settlement Negotiations: Your attorney will send what is called a “demand letter” to your insurance company or other party, laying out your case for damages. Oftentimes, this is where your lawyer can get you a suitable personal injury settlement that will help make you feel whole again.
Filing Your Lawsuit: However, if the other party offers a low amount or outright rejects a reasonable settlement, then your legal team will switch gears and be ready to file a lawsuit to try to get you the best compensation possible.
Discovery: This is a period of time when both sides of a lawsuit share documents and other evidence, as requested. During this time is when your attorney will go after every possible piece of documentation the other side has that could help support your case.
Trial: When a case can’t be settled, it goes before a judge and jury. It is during this time that your attorney will argue your case, which includes questioning expert witnesses.
