We Can Help When You’ve Experienced an Accident
When it comes to your accident case, there are 3 rules that you should always follow. These 3 aspects are: if you have suffered from severe injuries, are faced with extensive medical bills, or have significant loss of income due to your injuries. You don’t want to handle a claim on your own when it has 3 of these aspects. We can help you with the following types of cases.
Auto Accidents: In Connecticut, vehicle accidents have been unfortunately increasing steadily. In 2015, the death toll from these accidents increased by 14% from the previous year. There have been a total of 283 motor vehicle accidents in the state in just 2015 alone. You want to act quickly when you have been injured by another party in a traffic accident and wonder where to turn. Every driver out there who you share the roadways with owes you a duty of care, which means that you must be able to show that a driver was acting negligently when an accident took place. If you can prove this, you can hold a motor vehicle driver liable for your injuries. Let us help you preserve every aspect of your case as you work toward compensation.
Bicycle Accidents: Every year, riders are injured or killed when drivers do not watch out for them on the roadways. It has been proven time and time again that bicycle riders are more susceptible to injuries than many other parties, with the risks being huge. Perhaps a driver was speeding, running a stop sign, or turning at an intersection without looking and it caused your accident. Let us help you compensate and hold a party liable for one of these catastrophic accidents.
Bus Accidents: Buses are dictated by common carrier law. A common carrier is a mode of transportation that takes you from one place to the other for a fee. This means that common carriers must execute the highest duty of care to those who use these services and keep them safe from harm under any circumstances. You will find that these cases are very unique, with many entities being named in the injury lawsuit at times. They could also be owned by government agencies, which means you will have to make an injury claim against the government and abide by certain rules.
Commercial Vehicle Accidents: Types of commercial vehicles on our roads in Connecticut include flatbed trucks, passenger vans, and many other types of vehicles that operate out of businesses. Though business makes our world go round and keeps products on the market shelves, commercial vehicle accidents are not unheard of. If you have been involved in one of these accidents, you may find that you have a claim against a driver or business. But, when it comes down to being able to compensate for your injuries, you will have to make the distinction between the driver as an employee or an independent contractor.
DUI Accidents: Those involved in DUI accidents tend to sustain catastrophic injuries, as many drunk drivers will be involved in head-on crashes. If a driver made the negligent decision to get drunk and get behind the wheel, it could lead to both criminal and civil claims. If you have been injured in one of these accidents, your injuries were probably extensive – and we want to help. Talk to us as soon as possible to work toward the compensation you deserve in your time of need.
Pedestrian Accidents: Pedestrian accidents are on the rise. Pedestrians are also owed the highest duty of care by everyone who shares the roadways with them. You are probably familiar with the phrase “right of way,” which applies to pedestrians on our roads. People who choose to walk have no protection from vehicles when they are involved in an accident, which is why the injuries tend to be so severe. Let us help you if you are a pedestrian who has been significantly injured in one of these accidents.
Trucking Accidents: Trucks are heavier than many other types of vehicles on our roadways, which is why some of the most serious injuries result. When you have been put up against a truck in an accident, you will usually find that the damages are extensive. There are many parties who could be liable for your truck accident, from the truck driver themselves to the company or the cargo loader depending on the circumstances. If a truck driver has violated a certain measure and injuries resulted, you might have a claim. Speak to us instantly to preserve your case and get started.
