If you have been hurt in a car accident and it was not your fault, you deserve to be compensated. You could have medical bills, missed work, loss of income, pain and suffering and just the aggravation of being in an accident. We fight with insurance companies and take cases to trial if a good settlement cannot be reached.
Chances are, if you were in a car accident, your car also sustained damages. If the car belongs to you, those becomes your damages because the car may need to be repaired and will very likely decrease in resale value. Connecticut recognizes a claim for the decrease in value--it's called Diminished Value. We consider diminished value in all of our clients' cases and seek its recovery in demands and litigation. For more information, check out our page on Diminished Value. Please note, we only handle Diminished Value claims in conjunction with personal injury claims.
