Personal Injury Lawyers in Connecticut

Suffering an injury due to someone else’s careless or reckless actions can feel like being punished even though you did nothing wrong. In many respects, the law in Connecticut agrees with that sentiment: if someone harms someone else by virtue of their own negligence, the harmed party has the right to pursue fair compensation from the negligent party through either a private settlement or a lawsuit in civil court. However, alleging legal negligence and actually proving it are two vastly different matters, and effectively demonstrating that you deserve restitution for your damages may require professional legal assistance.

The services a Connecticut personal injury lawyer could provide extend far beyond just advocating on your behalf in a courtroom. A qualified legal representative could play a crucial role in identifying the various economic and non-economic losses your accident resulted in, negotiating with insurance companies for fair coverage, and contesting any allegations that you yourself bear liability for your injuries rather than the defendant in your case. You are already going through enough recovering from your injury while dealing with property damage, medical bills, and the incessant stress they provoke—let us help with the legal side of your case, so you can focus on your and your family’s needs.

The personal injury attorneys at Billings, Barrett & Bowman are experienced in handling all types of civil cases throughout Connecticut, including Guilford, Milford, Branford, Stratford, West Hartford, Bridgeport, Westport, and New Haven. Whether you were involved in a car, truck, motorcycle, or bicycle accident, or your loved one suffered a wrongful death or was harmed due to nursing home abuse, we may be able to help you with understanding the legal processes and compensation you may be entitled to and gathering evidence to support your case as we fight to obtain the maximum amount of recovery possible. We also communicate directly with insurance companies and are always prepared to advocate at trial if necessary.

The attorneys at Billings, Barrett & Bowman are passionate about pursuing justice for the injured. If you or your loved one was hurt because of another’s negligent act in Meriden, Middletown, Waterbury, Cheshire, Derby, Fairfield, or anywhere else in the Constitution State, call us today.
