Connecticut insurance companies on your side after a car crash? Don’t be so sure

Insurance companies are big business in Connecticut. Some of the nation’s leading insurance providers are based here in the state. Many people like to think their insurance company is looking out for their best interests. We want to believe if we have an accident, our insurance company will be there to help us get back on our feet.

Unfortunately, that’s not always true. Instead, your insurance company might be more concerned with its bottom line. As a result, they will sometimes go to extreme lengths to avoid paying people injured in an auto accident.

In some cases, your insurance company may be more concerned about the other driver in an auto accident. Now imagine your insurance company went to court and defended the other driver who caused the accident. Sounds crazy? Absolutely. But that’s exactly what one insurance company did after a driver killed a 24-year-old woman driving another car. The woman’s insurance company defended the other driver in court, even though the other driver had a suspended license.

At the Law Offices of Mark E. Salomone & Morelli, a Connecticut auto accident attorney at our law firm can work with you if you’ve been injured in an auto accident. We know what’s legal or against the law in Connecticut.

We also realize that no two accidents are the same. Every one is unique – just like you. That’s why we can work with you and design a strategy that fits your specific legal needs. Sometimes, you may need to file an auto accident lawsuit in Connecticut. We can help you sort through all your options.

In the case of the 24-year-old woman who died in an auto accident, her insurance company initially didn’t want to pay her family the full amount. “I think they thought that we would just turn our tails down behind us and walk away,” the 24-year-old’s mother told The New York Times.

The woman’s family took her insurance company to court and won. Taking on insurance companies in court can be a daunting task for many people. They don’t scare us. We’re prepared to do whatever it takes to get you the money you rightfully deserve. Contact a Connecticut auto accident lawyer who will fight for your rights. Contact the Law Offices of Mark E.
