Heroes for the Injured

We focus on our clients!

A common problem victims face is finding lawyers who are willing to represent them against powerful insurance companies. Many personal injury law firms are simply scared of litigating tough cases. Our seasoned personal injury attorneys in Bristol, CT are fearless advocates who refuse to be intimidated by insurance companies or the underhanded tactics they use in court. 

Why You Need an Experienced Personal Injury Attorney

Experience matters!

Choosing an experienced personal injury attorney can make all the difference in the outcome of your case. While many lawyers falsely claim to understand personal injury claims, the reality is they are simply looking for easy settlements at the expense of their clients’ welfare. With the Carter Mario Law Firm, you can trust that your case will be handled with utmost professionalism and expertise.

Personal Injury Cases in Bristol We Handle

Were you in a car accident on Route 6? Did you suffer an injury while undergoing a routine procedure at Bristol Hospital? No matter how you were injured, the personal injury attorneys at the Carter Mario Law Firm have the experience and resources necessary to get you the money you are entitled to receive.

Car Accidents

Drivers are required to operate their vehicles safely and reasonably. Despite this requirement, 1,451 car accidents occurred in Bristol, CT in 2022. If you were injured in a car accident, the Carter Mario Law Firm will fight to get you the financial compensation you deserve.

Truck Accidents

Truck accidents can have devastating consequences. This is because their large size and heavy cargo loads make them more lethal to surrounding vehicles in a collision. If you were involved in a truck accident, our litigators know how to collect evidence such as black box data and drug test results with the goal of building a strong case on your behalf against the negligent truck driver or trucking company.

Motorcycle Accidents

While motorcycles are fun to ride, they are also dangerous due to the complete lack of physical protections they offer drivers. Motorcycle accidents often leave victims with permanent injuries. If you were recently injured in a motorcycle collision in Bristol, CT the Carter Mario Law Firm will fight to hold the negligent driver accountable.

Workers’ Compensation

If you were hurt in a work-related accident, you may be eligible to make a workers’ compensation claim. Under Connecticut law (Sec. 31-275), you can obtain benefits if you were injured on the job. As workers’ compensation insurance is no-fault, you may be eligible for benefits even if your own negligence caused your injury.

Medical Malpractice

Medical malpractice cases demand experienced representation due to complex legal and factual issues. To sue a doctor, Connecticut law (Sec. 52-190a) requires a certificate of merit to be filed with a medical malpractice lawsuit. If you were the victim of medical negligence in Bristol, CT the personal injury team at the Carter Mario Law Firm will fight to get you the justice you deserve.

Defective Products

Injuries caused by defective products can be life-altering. Victims are often injured due to:

  • Design defects — Flaws in the product’s design made it unreasonably dangerous.
  • Manufacturing defects — Flaws in the method used to build the product made it unreasonably dangerous.
  • Marketing defects — A lack of sufficient warning or instructions resulted in the product being unreasonably dangerous

Under Connecticut law (Sec. 52-572n), you can pursue claims against the manufacturer or distributor based on a variety of legal theories.

A Guide to Filing a Bristol Personal Injury Claim

Navigating the process of filing a personal injury claim in Bristol, CT can be overwhelming. Our comprehensive guide will walk you through the necessary steps to ensure a smooth and successful claim. Filing a personal injury claim requires a victim to:

  1. Identify the negligent party
  2. Make a claim with the negligent party’s insurance company
  3. Gather evidence regarding liability such as photos and witness statements
  4. Gather evidence of damages such as medical records and bills
  5. Prepare and submit a settlement demand to the insurance company
  6. Attempt to negotiate a settlement
  7. File and litigate a personal injury lawsuit if settlement discussions are unsuccessful

Who Is Allowed to File an Injury Claim in Connecticut?

Anyone who was physically injured in an accident can file a personal injury claim. If a victim’s injuries were particularly severe, Connecticut law (Sec. 52-555b) allows a victim’s spouse to pursue a loss of consortium claim. If an accident caused a victim to suffer fatal injuries, Connecticut law (Sec. 52.555) allows the victim’s estate to pursue a wrongful death claim.

Potential Damages You Can Recover from a Bristol Injury Claim

Damages is a legal term that refers to a victim’s compensable losses. In a personal injury case, Connecticut law (Sec. 52-572h) allows you to claim economic and non-economic damages. The personal injury attorneys at the Carter Mario Law Firm will fight to ensure you are fully compensated for your economic and non-economic losses.

Economic Damages

Victims who suffer physical injuries often need expensive medical treatment. Additionally, victims are often unable to work due to their injuries. You can claim your medical expenses, lost wages, and any other financial losses directly related to the injury as your economic damages.

Non-Economic Damages

In addition to causing financial losses, physical injuries are often painful. Some accidents also cause victims to suffer scarring and disfigurement. You can claim your physical pain and suffering, emotional distress, loss of enjoyment of life, and other intangible losses resulting from your injuries as your non-economic damages.

Bristol Personal Injury Claim FAQs

Got questions about personal injury claims in Bristol, CT? You are not alone! The personal injury lawyers at the Carter Mario Law Firm are here to answer your questions.

How long do I have to file a personal injury claim in Connecticut?

Do not wait! Act fast!

Following an accident, you only have a limited amount of time to file a lawsuit. This is known as the statute of limitations. The statute of limitations for personal injury claims in Connecticut (Sec. 52-584) is generally two years from the date of the injury.

What is the cost of hiring a personal injury attorney in Bristol, CT?

You pay nothing unless we win!

At the Carter Mario Law Firm, we work on a contingency fee basis. This means you only pay if we win your case. Additionally, you do not have to pay any upfront fees or case expenses.

Is there a maximum amount of damages I can recover from a personal injury claim?

Generally, there is no limit on the amount you can recover!

Many states limit the amount of money victims can obtain in personal injury lawsuits. Connecticut does not impose a specific cap on damages in personal injury cases. The only exception is if you are pursuing a punitive damages claim that is not based on a specific statute. According to the Connecticut Supreme Court, your punitive damages claim is limited to litigation costs and attorney fees.

Is it possible to sue for a dog bite in Connecticut?

If you were bitten by a dog, you can file a lawsuit!

Despite their seemingly gentle nature, dogs can suddenly become vicious with unsuspecting victims. Injuries from dog bites can be truly horrific. Fortunately, Connecticut law (Sec. 22-357) allows victims to sue dog owners on the basis of strict liability, which means a victim does not have to prove that the owner knew of the dog’s violent nature.

If I was a passenger in a car accident, can I still file a claim?

You can absolutely file a claim as a passenger!

Passengers are uniquely situated in personal injury cases. This is because they are nearly blameless for car accidents as they were not driving. However, passengers generally end up having to sue both drivers, as each driver often blames the other for the damages of the accident.

Will not getting medical attention impact my claim?

Failing to obtain medical treatment will hurt your claim!

Insurance companies often use delays in seeking treatment to argue victims suffered no injuries.

Delaying medical care can weaken your case and affect the compensation you may receive. Seeking prompt medical attention accordingly is crucial for both your health and your claim.
