Personal Injury Cases We Handle in East Hartford

While many personal injury law firms claim to fight for their clients, the reality is they decline difficult cases or only seek easy settlements. This is because they do not want to expend the time and money necessary to fight powerful insurance companies. The East Hartford, CT accident lawyers at the Carter Mario Law Firm routinely litigate a range of complex personal cases.

Workers’ Compensation

Under Connecticut law (Sec. 31-275), victims can seek workers’ compensation benefits if they suffered work-related injuries. Workers’ compensation insurance provides numerous benefits, including reimbursement for medical care, lost wages, and financial compensation for permanent injuries. If you have been injured at work, an experienced personal injury attorney can help you navigate the complexities of the workers’ compensation system and fight for the benefits you deserve.

Medical Malpractice

Medical malpractice occurs when a doctor makes a serious error that breaches the standard of care for a medical provider in their field. Pursuing a medical malpractice claim is difficult as Connecticut law (Sec. 52-190a) requires a victim to file a certificate of merit with their lawsuit.

If you have suffered harm due to medical negligence, an East Hartford, CT personal injury lawyer from the Carter Mario Law Firm will work diligently to hold the doctor who harmed you responsible for their actions.

Defective Products

The laws surrounding product liability are complex. There are three legal theories under which a manufacturer can be held liable:

  • Defective design — the product was unreasonably hazardous due to a flaw or error in its design.
  • Manufacturing defect – the product was unreasonably hazardous due to a flaw or error in the manufacturing process.
  • Insufficient warning — an injury occurred due to the product not having adequate warning or instruction, which led to harm befalling a user.

If you have been injured by a defective product, we will investigate the circumstances and pursue legal action against the manufacturer or other liable parties to ensure you receive the compensation you deserve.

Car Accidents

Drivers are legally required to operate their vehicles safely and reasonably. Despite this legal requirement, car accidents occur throughout Connecticut with alarming regularity. Our experienced car accident attorneys will advocate for your rights and pursue the maximum compensation for your injuries, property damage, and other losses resulting from a car accident in East Hartford, CT.

Motorcycle Accidents

Motorcycle riders are at high risk of suffering severe or even fatal injuries. If a motorcycle is struck by a vehicle, the rider will absorb the full amount of the kinetic energy from the collision. If you have been injured in a motorcycle collision in East Hartford, CT, the skilled personal injury attorneys at the Carter Mario Law Firm will fight to get you the monetary compensation you need to rebuild your life.

Truck Accidents

While the trucking industry is heavily regulated, truck accidents still occur with alarming regularity. Collisions involving trucks and regular automobiles can cause life-altering or fatal injuries. Our dedicated personal injury attorneys have the knowledge and resources to litigate a truck accident lawsuit and secure the compensation you need for your recovery.

Recovering Maximum Compensation for East Hartford Personal Injury Clients

The personal injury lawyers at the Carter Mario Law Firm do not accept easy settlements. We know insurance companies routinely offer minimal settlements, which do not properly compensate injured victims. Our accident lawyers are not afraid to invest the time, resources, and money necessary to secure the maximum financial compensation possible for our clients.

The Carter Mario Law Firm was founded with the mission to help injured victims. Our attorneys and staff are well aware of the hardships you and your family are facing.

How To File a Personal Injury Claim in East Hartford, Connecticut

Our experienced personal injury attorneys will assist you in navigating the complexities of the process while also building a strong case against the at-fault party.

Who’s Eligible to File a Personal Injury Claim in East Hartford?

If you have suffered injuries or damages due to another person’s negligence, you can file a personal injury claim for damages in East Hartford, CT. If your spouse suffered serious debilitating injuries, you may be able to file a loss of consortium claim under Connecticut law (Sec. 52-555b). If you had a loved one who passed away as a result of another person’s negligence, you may be able to file a wrongful death claim under Connecticut law (Sec. 52.555) if you are the executor or administrator of your loved one’s estate.

Types of Damages You May Recover in a Personal Injury Claim

The financial compensation you can claim in a personal injury lawsuit is based on your damages. Under Connecticut law, you can claim both economic and non-economic damages. The personal injury lawyers in East Hartford, CT at the Carter Mario Law Firm will fight to maximize the compensation you receive as a result of your damages.

Economic Damages

Economic damages are quantifiable losses. Specifically, you can claim your medical expenses, lost wages, and property damage as your economic damages. If your injuries are permanent, you can also claim your future financial losses and future medical expenses.

Non-Economic Damages

Non-economic damages do not have an exact dollar value. Instead, victims can claim non-economic damages for the physical pain and suffering they experienced. Additionally, victims can also claim their permanent disabilities as part of their non-economic damages.

East Hartford Personal Injury FAQs
