Getting you the compensation you deserve

Personal Injury Lawyers in New Haven, CT

You should consult a personal injury lawyer if you were recently injured due to someone else’s negligence in New Haven, CT. Due to the various defenses asserted by insurance companies, personal injury claims are complex matters to litigate. Experienced representation by a New Haven personal injury attorney is essential.

Trust Carter Mario’s 30+ Years Of Experience

The personal injury attorneys at the Carter Mario Law Firm have been litigating personal injury cases in New Haven for over 30 years. Our team of dedicated personal injury lawyers has helped countless clients obtain the compensation they deserve. With our deep understanding of Connecticut’s personal injury laws and proven track record of success, we are committed to fighting for your rights and achieving the best possible outcome for your case.

Kinds Of Personal Injury Cases We Cover

Many personal injury law firms decline to represent injured victims in anything other than simple accident cases. Stated simply, these law firms only seek easy settlements and are unwilling to battle an insurance company in court to recover compensation on behalf of their clients. At the Carter Mario Law Firm, our New Haven, CT legal team are true advocates unafraid to litigate difficult personal injury cases such as:

Car Accidents

Auto accidents sometimes leave injured individuals permanently disabled and in chronic pain. To win a New Haven car accident case, you must prove the other driver caused the collision and your injuries by a preponderance of the evidence, i.e., 51%. If you have been injured in a car accident due to someone else’s negligence, our legal team will work diligently to build a strong personal injury claim and pursue the compensation you deserve.

Truck Accidents

Commercial trucks are common on roads and highways in New Haven. Due to their size and mass, personal injury accidents involving trucks often cause severe injuries and substantial damages. If you suffered injuries in a truck accident, you need a New Haven personal injury attorney who can identify and collect evidence, such as black box data, to build a compelling case against the negligent truck driver.

Motorcycle Accidents

Due to the lack of physical projections, motorcycle collisions can be particularly devastating. Due to motorcycle victims’ life-altering injuries, insurance carriers often hire aggressive lawyers who do everything they can to defend motorcycle-related personal injury cases. Our dedicated New Haven personal injury lawyers understand the unique challenges motorcycle accident victims face and will strive to protect your rights and secure fair compensation.

Workers’ Compensation

If you are an employee who suffered a workplace injury or developed an occupational illness while in the course of your employment, you may be entitled to workers’ compensation benefits. Workers’ compensation is no-fault insurance and provides generous financial and medical benefits to workplace injury victims. Our New Haven personal injury lawyers have a comprehensive understanding of Connecticut’s workers’ compensation laws and will fight for the benefits you deserve.

Medical Malpractice

Medical malpractice occurs when a doctor commits a grievous act of negligence. Medical malpractice claims are among the most difficult personal injury cases to litigate due to fierce defenses asserted by insurance companies and the requirement of a certificate of merit to be filed with a lawsuit. Our experienced New Haven attorneys will carefully review your medical malpractice case, consult with medical experts, and seek justice against the medical provider who caused your injuries.

Defective Products

If a defective product has injured you, you may have grounds for a product liability claim. Unlike other personal injury claims, a product liability claim does not require a victim to prove a manufacturer committed an act of negligence. Instead, there are three legal theories under which a manufacturer can be held liable:

  • Defective design – a flaw in a product’s design causes it to be unreasonably safe for consumers.
  • Manufacturing defect – the method used to manufacture the product causes it to be unreasonably unsafe for consumers.
  • Marketing defect – the method used to market the product or a lack of proper instruction causes it to be unreasonably safe for consumers.

How A Personal Injury Lawyer In New Haven Helps You

Navigating the legal complexities of a personal injury case can be overwhelming, especially when dealing with injuries and emotional distress. In addition, a New Haven personal injury lawyer can build a strong case against the responsible party. Our law firm can investigate the facts of your accident, gather evidence, attempt to negotiate a settlement, and provide aggressive representation in court.

How To File A Personal Injury Lawsuit In Connecticut 

To file a personal injury lawsuit, you must identify the responsible party. Following this, you must prepare and file a lawsuit with the court. You must serve the lawsuit and a summons on the opposing party to begin the formal litigation process.

Who Is Eligible To Make A Personal Injury Claim?

Normally, only an injured victim can assert a personal injury claim in Connecticut. If the victim’s injuries resulted in a permanent injury, their spouse can pursue a loss of consortium claim due to the loss of support, affection, and physical companionship. If the victim dies, their estate can pursue a wrongful death claim on their behalf. 

Damages Recovered From A Personal Injury Case

Simply being in an accident in New Haven does not provide legal justification for financial compensation. Instead, a victim must have suffered legally recognized losses known as damages. Under Connecticut law, a victim can claim both economic damages and non-economic damages.

Economic Damages 

Economic damages cover quantifiable losses. This includes financial losses such as medical bills, property damage, and lost wages. A victim can also claim their future medical expenses if their injuries caused a permanent disability.

Non-Economic Damages 

Non-economic damages are more subjective and compensate for intangible losses. A victim can claim the physical pain and suffering they experienced. Victims can also claim their mental anguish and emotional distress as part of their non-economic damages.

Personal Injury FAQs

Our law firm has been serving New Haven residents for over 30 years. We have answers if you have questions about personal injury claims in Connecticut. Our injury lawyers and staff always make themselves available to answer our New Haven clients’ questions regarding their cases.

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

In Connecticut, you have two years from the date of your accident to file a lawsuit. This is called the statute of limitations. If you fail to file within two years, you are forever precluded from pursuing your claim.

How much does a personal injury lawyer in New Haven cost?

At Carter Mario Law Firm, we work on a contingency fee basis. This means we charge no upfront fees. Additionally, under our Zero Fee Warranty, we only charge legal fees if we successfully recover your compensation. 

How quickly can I expect a settlement?

The timeline for reaching a settlement in a personal injury case can vary depending on various factors. Specifically, this includes the complexity of your case, the extent of your injuries, and the cooperation of the at-fault party’s insurance company. Our dedicated attorneys will work diligently to resolve your case efficiently while ensuring you receive fair compensation.
