Connecticut Personal Injury Attorneys

The underlying purpose of Connecticut personal injury law is to compensate individuals who have sustained injuries as a result of someone else’s negligence or recklessness.  An individual can sustain personal injuries in a variety of different accidents and scenarios, from car, truck, and motorcycle accidents to work accidents, slip and fall or trip and fall accidents, dog bites and other animal bites, exposure to defective or harmful products, or other intentional torts such as sexual abuse, rape, or battery.  Similarly, injuries can vary widely and can include simple bumps and bruises, soft-tissue injuries, fractures, tears, spinal cord injuries, traumatic brain injuries, or even death.  In any case, the personal injury plaintiff must prove that the at-fault party or parties acted unreasonably and/or intentionally in causing the injuries and damages.  That's where Mott Zezula's experienced Connecticut injury attorneys step in and advocate for our clients.  We take a unique, personalized approach to every case we handle and work closely with every client to address their specific legal concerns, gather all the necessary evidence, and tenaciously present your case in the most favorable light to maximize the compensation you receive.

Do I need an injury lawyer?

Not every personal injury case requires a lawyer, but in most cases it is a good idea to consult an injury lawyer before making any final decisions.  In most cases hiring an injury attorney provides you negotiation leverage to force a reasonable settlement.  Without an attorney, often times an insurance company will make an unreasonable settlement offer just to get you to go away.  Having an attorney directly involved helps to ensure you are not being taken advantage of and that you are receiving a fair amount of compensation for your injuries.  The Connecticut injury lawyers at Mott Zezula will provide a free consultation where the pros and cons of hiring a lawyer in your specific injury case can be discussed.

How much is my case worth?

Each injury case has its own unique set of facts and circumstances that drive its value.  The various factors that drive value include, but are not limited to, the type of accident and how it occurred, the nature and extent of the injuries, the future prognosis of the injuries, the amount of available insurance, the out-of-pocket losses sustained, the cost of medical bills, and the percentage of fault. Much of this information is unknown at the time of your injury, but as your cases progress it becomes easier to estimate the value of a claim. Our goal is to gather this information as quickly as possible, while also helping you avoid the tactics used by insurance companies to devalue your claim.  Call the Connecticut injury attorneys at Mott Zezula so we can discuss and evaluate your case at no cost.

How much does it cost?

For personal injury cases we work on a contingency fee basis. This means we do not collect a fee unless we are able to recover money on your behalf.  We understand that injury victims cannot afford to pay an attorney to represent them by the hour.  We therefore take pride knowing that the only way we get paid is if we diligently, zealously, and tenaciously represent your interests and obtain a fair injury settlement or award for you.

Reduced Contingency Fees:

We offer reduced contingency fees for certain cases that we are able to settle prior to filing a lawsuit against the at-fault party.  No other injury law firms offer this that we are aware of.


What should I do after an accident or injury?

The answer to that question depends on the type of injury and the cause of that injury.  Your health, however, should always be your top priority.  You should immediately seek medical treatment for your injuries, and disclose to your doctors all issues you are experiencing no matter how trivial or small they may seem.  Your medical records help to create an account of what transpired and exactly what you injured as a result. They also add credibility to your story and make you more believable to the insurance companies.  After seeking medical treatment, call Mott Zezula's injury lawyers before you speak with an insurance company.  In most circumstances you should not provide a recorded statement to the insurance company.  Take numerous pictures and videos if you are able, and preserve any evidence you think will help your case. Mott Zezula will take over all communications with the insurance company and hopefully put your mind at ease so you can focus on recovering from your injuries.
