Car Accidents

Being the victim of a car accident is devastating, especially if the accident was caused by the negligence, recklessness or wrongful act of another party. After an accident occurs, victims often face costly medical bills, pain, suffering and emotional distress at a time when they are unable to work and the lose income while trying to recover.

Truck Accidents

Because of their massive size and weight and the limited visibility they provide, trucks are frequently involved in catastrophic accidents with smaller vehicles. Large trucks, such as semis, big rigs, 18-wheelers, and tractor-trailers can cause serious injuries, disabilities and even fatalities to the drivers, passengers, and other victims involved.

Motorcycle Accidents

Because of the small size and relatively unprotected nature of motorcycles, motorcycle accidents frequently occur when other drivers fail to see the motorcyclist, resulting in serious injuries or fatalities. According to a National Highway Traffic Safety Administration in 2014, there were 92,000 motorcyclists injured in motor vehicle accidents in the United States.

Pedestrian Accidents

Pedestrian accidents are some of the worst incidents a personal injury attorney can handle. When a person is injured by a moving vehicle, they can sustain serious injuries. Depending on the speed and size of the vehicle, you could sustain injuries, including broken bones, concussion, spinal cord damages, and even death. If you are injured as a pedestrian in a motor vehicle accident, you need to consider your legal options.

Train & Bus Accidents

Trains and buses serve many people across the state of Connecticut. They are a wonderful way to save time and effort while lessening the impact of an individual on the environment. People often use buses and trains in Connecticut because they are affordable, reliable, and safe. Mass transit usually takes all precautions to ensure the safety of patrons.

Bicycle Accidents

Bicycles have become some of the most popular modes of transportation for people of major cities and even those in the suburbs. Hartford and its surrounding towns have extensive cycling trails and routes that allow bicycles to stay off some of the busy streets of Connecticut populated by aggressive drivers. Unfortunately, not all routes have designated cycling lanes. Vehicles and bicycles may have to share the road and use precaution to avoid incidents.

Injured Passengers

Car accidents are a serious issue in the state of Connecticut. People involved in these accidents can sustain serious injuries and assigning liability can be complicated. Since Connecticut is no longer a “no-fault” insurance state, people involved in accidents do not have to be covered under what other states call personal injury protection or PIP.

Auto Accident Injuries

Auto accident injuries in Connecticut can be traumatic and life-changing, especially if the accident is catastrophic and the resulting injuries are severe. Serious auto accident injuries often require costly emergency room visits, extensive medical treatment, physical therapy and vocational rehabilitation.

After the Accident

Auto accidents are sudden, unexpected events that can leave victims injured and bewildered. Although the aftermath of an accident may seem overwhelming, the way a victim handles an accident can make the difference between facing mounting difficulties alone and obtaining fair compensation for your harm.
