Every year, there are nearly 2 million rear-end collisions on U.S. roadways. These lead to hundreds of thousands of injuries and, on average, 1,700 deaths. The statistics in Connecticut aren't much better than they are nationwide. Our state sees nearly 35,000 rear-end crashes in a given year, which cause 10,000 serious injuries or deaths.
Victims find their lives completely changed. They face long and often painful recoveries. Some endure disabling injuries that prevent them from returning to their jobs or carrying out their day-to-day routines. Moreover, they must confront the expenses of medical care. It can be difficult to know where to turn for help.
How We Help Accident Victims
For more than 25 years, Cummings Law Firm has offered skilled legal representation to victims of rear-end accidents. In this time, founding attorney James Cummings has earned a reputation for effectively asserting his clients' interests and helping them obtain the compensation they need to recover.
Our firm pursues financial relief for a full spectrum of concerns, including:
- Hospital bills
- Doctors' fees
- Prescriptions costs
- Expenses associated with ongoing care
- Lost wages
- Property damage
- Necessary renovations to one's home
- Psychological trauma
- Pain and suffering
Insurance companies are quick to make settlement offers that may be tempting to accept. But it's important to consult with a lawyer first; the settlement offers are often inadequate. Insurers have an interest in paying as little as possible to injury victims, and will offer deals that fail to cover one's long-term needs.
Our firm works with a range of medical professionals to ascertain all expenses necessary for one's recovery, and we fight hard to get requisite financial relief for our clients.
