Many people ask me – do I need a lawyer to handle my personal injury case in Groton, Connecticut.  

I usually say that is a personal choice.  You are not required to have a lawyer.  There is no law that says you must have a lawyer.  If you feel comfortable dealing with the insurance adjuster yourself, have the time to put into the case, and can properly evaluate the case and then negotiate you can save yourself the cost of the attorney’s fees by handling the case on your own.  Great.
If you have a claim involving a death or a life changing injury, or other serious injury like a fracture, dislocation, surgery, significant loss of work, permanent injury then most people in that situation hire lawyers.    
But you always have the right to handle your own case.
I have created a free book to help people deal with the insurance adjuster on their own.  It is free from this website.  

If you want to handle your case on your own, then before you speak with the adjuster, and definitely before you sign any form definitely---without a doubt get free information from my website such as: 
My free book How to Put Your Best Foot Forward in Your Truck or Car Accident Case In Connecticut, and by free Book How to Explain Your Harms and Losses in a Step by Step Logical Way.  

If you do decide that you want the services of a lawyer who has experience handling serious personal injury cases like yours here are a few questions to ask to help you find the right lawyer for your type of case.  
Ask the lawyer:
Are you Board Certified in Civil Trial Advocacy
Are you a Superlawyer?
Are you involved in your state’s Trial Lawyer organizations in a leadership position?
Have you handled similar cases in the past? 
Have you received written client testimonials from happy clients?
