Personal injury

Our focus is primarily on personal injury, whether the at-fault party acted intentionally or with negligence. We are fully prepared to handle any of the following types of cases:

  • Automobile accidents. Traffic accidents can be caused by negligent or distracted drivers. When people get hurt in auto accidents, they often suffer severe injuries, such as brain injuries, miss extensive amounts of work and need significant medical treatment. We seek to get all of the compensation needed for a full recovery.
  • Drunk driving accidents. Victims of drunk driving accidents often sustain the most severe injuries as the negligence of drunk drivers tends to be heightened. Years of handling these types of accident cases ensures that you get the necessary representation in these situations.
  • Motorcycle accidents. Due to a motorcycle’s small size and the exposure of the motorcyclist, the severity of bike accidents can be extremely high, and brain injuries are common. Our ability to investigate the accident, identify the causes and plead your case often results in strong recoveries in these matters.
  • Slip and fall accidents. A slip and fall case requires a fighter, an attorney who exhibits a willingness to take such cases to court. Insurance companies can be unwilling to concede much ground in these matters. An attorney who is willing to fight to get just compensation is what you need if you were injured in a fall.
  • Workers’ compensation. When you are hurt while on the job, it is important to follow the proper procedure for reporting your injury and obtaining medical treatment. We help you step by step to obtain full and fair workers’ compensation benefits to cover your medical bills, lost wages and other damages.

Wrongful death

Families who lose a loved one because of another person’s negligence suffer a tremendous loss. They may be too wrought with grief to deal with the financial matters that frequently accompany a family member’s death. A Stamford wrongful death lawyer can provide the legal guidance necessary to help you receive the compensation you deserve. Many claims can be settled with the defendants’ insurance companies outside of court. In fact, most injury cases do not go to trial. However, if it becomes necessary to resort to litigation, we draw on our experience in the courtroom over the past three decades. We have tried almost 100 cases before judges and juries in Connecticut at the state and federal levels.
