Six Signs of Potential Medical Malpractice

Misdiagnosis

bigstock-Car-Accident-2838103-scaled

Every automobile insurance policy issued in Connecticut is required, by law, to provide uninsured and underinsured motorist coverage. The purpose of uninsured motorist coverage is to provide protection in several circumstances, such (1) as if the at-fault driver does not have car insurance, (2) if you are struck intentionally by the at-fault driver, (3) if are struck by a hit-and-run vehicle, or (4) if the at-fault driver’s insurance company refuses to provide coverage. The purpose of underinsured motorist coverage is to provide protection if you are hit by an at-fault driver whose liability insurance policy limits are insufficient to compensate you for your injuries. In that situation, you would make a claim against your own insurance company up to the limit of underinsured motorist coverage. But such a claim only applies if the limits of your underinsured motorist coverage are greater than the liability limits of the at-fault driver’s policy, unless you have coverage known as underinsured motorist conversion coverage. Conversion coverage allows you to “stack” the limits of underinsured motorist coverage on top of the liability limits of the at-fault driver’s insurance policy.

A couple of examples will illustrate how these uninsured and underinsured motorist coverage works:

  1. Case 1 – Uninsured Motorist – You are rear-ended by a vehicle who flees the scene. Your injury case is worth $100,000 and you have uninsured motorist coverage of $200,000. You receive $100,000 from your insurance company.

Wrongful death cases are very emotional and oftentimes can be extremely complicated.  As a result, experience matters when handling such cases.  Although not every wrongful death case goes to court, it must be prepared as if it will.  Here is why you should never go to court without experienced representation in a wrongful death case.

You may be in a situation where you think that you need a medical malpractice lawyer, but do not know how to find the right one. Your choice of a medical malpractice attorney can make all the difference in how your case is handled. The following tips can help you make your decision.

Reputation

A primary characteristic when searching for the right medical malpractice attorney is that attorney’s professional reputation. You should make sure to research an attorney’s reputation before scheduling a meeting with them to make sure they are recognized as an expert in handling medical malpractice cases. While attorney’s fees will most likely be one third of your recovery, not all attorneys can provide the same level of service and success. You want to hire a medical malpractice attorney who is known for their dedication to their clients and who will not give up until a case is successfully settled for a fair amount or litigated at trial. You also want to hire a medical malpractice attorney who is recognized by their peers for successfully handling tough medical malpractice cases. Make sure to hire a medical malpractice attorney with a great reputation.

Connecticut Drivers: When You Are Injured, You Need a Personal Injury Attorney 

Any driver, even an experienced one, may be involved in a motor vehicle collision. In addition to suffering injuries, pursuing your rights after a collision can be costly, stressful, and overwhelming. If you are injured because of a motor vehicle collision, you may think you can handle the matter yourself. However, hiring an experienced personal injury attorney as soon as possible will allow you to focus on your physical recovery and alleviate you of having to deal with and worry about the day-to-day minutiae of a personal injury claim. 

If You Are Injured as a Result of a Motor Vehicle Collision in Connecticut… 

by Andra Turner

andra-turner-paralegal-215x300I am a longtime paralegal at Adelman Hirsch & Connors, which I believe is one of the finest personal injury firms in Connecticut. We relentlessly prepare every case for trial, even though there is a 90% chance it never sees a courtroom. This ensures we get the best results for our clients. We spend enormous amounts of time talking with our clients to learn about who they are and the true cost of their loss and/or injury to them and their families. Most of the time, I love what I do.

What can get lost in the busy days is that there is a personal price to pay for anyone who works in the personal injury field. There are a thousand little traumas.
