“I’m hurt. I’m scared. I’m unsure what’s going to happen. I’m unsure of what is going to happen with my case. What is the process?”
We’re often asked at initial meetings with clients what the process is. And we believe deeply in process. At Connecticut Trial Firm we have a 7 step proven process that we employ in all of our personal injury cases.
Here are the 7 steps:
Listening is the always step. At the core of every case it is our mission to understand. To understand what happened. To understand what you are going through. To understand how your life has changed. To understand we must listen. Listening is at the core of all we do. Listening allows us to explain your situation to an adjuster, opposing counsel, a mediator, a judge, and/or a jury.
Knowledge is power. And we are committed to helping you understand the law. Not in complex legal terms but in common sense terms.
Our team has to investigate your case. We gather all necessary records. We contact witnesses and get statements. We hire experts to help us explain what happened. We keep our clients informed of our investigation throughout our representation.
We believe in being honest and candid with our clients about their situations. After we are done with our investigation you will have your questions answered about the strengths and weaknesses in your case. We will discuss potential outcomes. We will discuss how much we think a case is worth. You will have the opportunity to have all of your questions answered.
5. Resolve If Possible
Many of our cases resolve without the filing of a lawsuit. We make all attempts to do this when possible. We tell your story through the information we provide to the insurance company. We promptly relay any and all offers to you. We will consider the possibility of a pre-suit mediation and discuss all options of alternative dispute resolution with you.
6. Litigate If Necessary
Sometimes insurance companies don’t do what they should. We will not be pushed around. We will file suit if need be. And we will hold them accountable so that you are fairly and fully compensated for your harms and losses.
Most of our cases settle before trial. This happens because we are willing and able to capably try your case to a jury or a judge. Some firms are just settlers. We’re not. We are a trial firm. Everything step in our process builds to trial. Insurance companies have no incentive to offer full and fair compensation when they know a lawyer or a law firm is just going to settle. We pride ourselves on trying cases. And insurance companies know this.
This is our proven process. It works. We are happy to meet with you to discuss your case. We’ll start by listening to you. Give us a call (860) 471-8333.
