With over 30 years of combined experience, our Groton lawyers have a proven track record of success and have obtained over one billion dollars for our injured clients. We bring a wealth of knowledge and experience to every case. With the Carter Mario Law Firm by your side, you can rest assured that you’re in capable hands.

What Personal Injury Cases We Handle

We don’t hope to settle. We focus on winning!

The Carter Mario Law Firm is a full-service litigation firm. We use our knowledge and legal skills to successfully handle a wide range of injury cases. No matter how complex your case is, we’re prepared to fight for your rights and guide you through the legal process to obtain maximum results!

The Importance of Getting an Experienced Personal Injury Lawyer

A seasoned litigator can make the difference between winning and losing!

Sadly, many law firms are unwilling to represent victims against powerful insurance companies. These law firms lack the knowledge, litigation skills, and resources necessary to build successful cases for their clients. You can trust the Carter Mario Law Firm to guide you through the complexities of the claims process, build a strong case on your behalf, and vigorously fight for your rights in court!

Groton Personal Injury Cases We Can Help With

Whether you were struck by a commercial truck on I-95 or bitten by a dog while walking in Bluff Point Park, we will fight to protect your rights and future! As a true litigation law firm, we refuse to limit ourselves to a single legal practice area. At the Carter Mario Law Firm, our dedicated team is here to help you seek justice and the compensation you deserve. 

Car Accidents

Despite extensive traffic laws, injuries from auto accidents are a common occurrence. In 2022, 181 victims suffered both fatal and non-fatal injuries as a result of car accidents in Groton, CT. Whether you were injured in a fender-bender or a major collision, we’re here to help you recover after a car accident.

Truck Accidents

While commercial trucks play an invaluable role in transporting goods across the United States, they also cause innocent motorists to suffer terrible injuries due to their large size and heavy cargo loads. Our Groton, CT attorneys have extensive experience litigating complex truck accident cases. We will thoroughly investigate the facts of your case and gather evidence such as drug test results, black box data, and driver sleep logs with the goal of building a strong case on your behalf and obtaining fair compensation for your injuries.

Motorcycle Accidents

While motorcycles are fun to ride, they are also dangerous. Motorcycle riders have almost no physical protection, which means they are more likely to suffer life-altering or even fatal injuries. If you or a loved one was injured in a motorcycle accident, our Groton, CT attorneys will fight tirelessly to get the financial compensation you need and deserve!

Workers’ Compensation

Before the passage of the workers’ compensation law, it was nearly impossible for injured workers to obtain monetary compensation for work-related accidents. Now, Connecticut law (Sec. 31-275) allows you to make a claim for workers’ compensation benefits as long as you were injured within the scope of your employment. If you suffered a work-related injury, our Groton, CT personal injury lawyers can guide you through the workers’ compensation process and ensure you receive the benefits you are entitled to!

Medical Malpractice

When medical professionals make mistakes, it’s crucial to hold them accountable. Medical negligence claims require experienced legal representation due to Connecticut law (Sec. 52-190a) that requires a certificate of merit to be filed with the lawsuit along with the tough defenses asserted by doctors and insurance companies. If you suspect you were the victim of medical malpractice, the Carter Mario Law Firm has the knowledge, resources, and tenacity necessary to successfully square off against incompetent doctors and their lawyers in court!

Defective Products

Have you or a close family member recently suffered an injury due to a product you thought was safe? You may have a product liability claim if you can prove the product was unreasonably hazardous due to a:

  • Design defect – The manufacturer negligently designed the product.
  • Manufacturing defect – A flaw was present in the method used to build the product, or ingredients used to make the product were deficient.
  • Marketing defect – The manufacturer failed to provide sufficient instructions or failed to provide sufficient warnings.

Depending on the facts of your case, Connecticut law (Sec. 52-572n) allows you to sue the manufacturer or distributor based on theories of negligence, strict liability, and breach of warranty.

How to File a Personal Injury Claim in Groton, CT

The claims process is complex and requires strong legal guidance. To file a claim, you must:

  1. Identify the person who caused your injuries (and their insurance company).
  2. Make a claim with the other person’s insurance company.
  3. Gather evidence such as witness statements, accident reports, photos, etc.
  4. Gather evidence of your damages, such as your medical records, medical bills, proof of lost wages, etc.
  5. Prepare and send a written demand to the other person’s insurance company summarizing your injuries and potential legal claims.
  6. Prepare and file a lawsuit if settlement negotiations are unsuccessful.
  7. Serve the person who caused your injuries and conduct formal discovery such as Interrogatories and Depositions.
  8. Identify and retain possible expert witnesses such as medical providers and accident reconstructionists.
  9. Prepare for trial.

The Groton, CT lawyers at the Carter Mario Law Firm can handle this entire process for you while you focus on recovering from your injuries and rebuilding your life.

Who Can File a Personal Injury Case in Connecticut?

As a general rule of thumb, you can file a personal injury claim if you suffered an injury due to another person’s negligence. Connecticut law (Sec. 52-555b) also allows your spouse to file a loss of consortium claim if your injuries affect your ability to contribute to your marriage. If the other person’s negligence caused the death of a close family member, Connecticut law (Sec. 52.555) allows the administrator of your family member’s estate to file a wrongful death claim.

Damages You May Be Able to Get from an Injury Claim

Being involved in an accident does not generally entitle you to monetary compensation. Instead, you must have suffered damages that are recognized by the law. Under Connecticut law (Sec. 52-572h), you can obtain compensation for your economic and non-economic damages.

Economic Damages

Have you suffered financial losses as a result of an accident? Did your injuries prevent you from working and require you to obtain medical treatment? An economic damages claim allows you to obtain monetary compensation for your medical bills, lost wages, and other financial losses.

Non-Economic Damages

Some losses do not have an exact financial value. Specifically, these intangible losses include physical pain and suffering, emotional distress, physical disfigurement, and diminished quality of life. A non-economic damages claim allows you to seek monetary compensation for these losses.

Groton Personal Injury FAQs

An accident is a painful and disruptive event. It is natural to have questions about your claim, legal rights, and legal obligations. The attorneys and staff at the Carter Mario Law Firm always strive to keep their clients fully informed and to answer all possible questions.

What is the statute of limitations for injury claims in Connecticut?

Act quickly, as time is short!

Under Connecticut law (Sec. 52-584), you must file a personal injury lawsuit within two years of your accident. This time limit is known as the statute of limitations, and it is strictly enforced! Your ability to sue is permanently waived if you fail to file a lawsuit within this two year time limit.

How much does a personal injury attorney cost in Groton?

You pay no upfront fees!

The lawyers at the Carter Mario Law Firm represent injured victims on a contingency fee basis. This means we only charge a legal fee when we win your case. 

What is the maximum amount of damages I can recover from my claim?

In general, there is no limit!

Some States limit the amount of non-economic damages victims can recover in Court. These limits are known as “caps”. There is no cap on damages in Connecticut unless you are seeking punitive damages that are not based on a specific written law. Under this narrow exception, a punitive damages award is limited to your litigation costs and attorney fees.

Can I sue for a dog bite in Connecticut?

You can absolutely sue for a dog bite!

If you were bitten by a dog, Connecticut law (Sec. 22-357) allows you to sue the owner under a theory of strict liability. This means you do not have to prove the owner knew the dog was violent. Instead, the owner is liable if their dog caused your injury.

Can a passenger file a claim for a car accident?

Yes! A passenger can file a personal injury claim!

If you were a passenger in a vehicle involved in a car accident, you have a stronger chance of winning than either driver. This is because, as a passenger, you were not driving, which means you are nearly blameless. However, you will likely have to sue both drivers if neither admits fault for the accident.

Does not seeking medical attention negatively affect my claim?

Failing to seek prompt medical treatment will hurt your claim!

Insurance companies will use every excuse possible to minimize or deny your claims. One of their favorites is using gaps or delays in treatment to argue a victim suffered minimal injuries. Promptly seeking medical care ensures your injuries are properly documented and treated.
