Truck Accidents

When large commercial trucks strike regular automobiles, they cause innocent victims to suffer devastating injuries. While commercial trucking industry is heavily regulated, truck accidents often result from:

  • Sleep deprived drivers
  • Lack of sufficient maintenance
  • Harsh working conditions
  • Improper or excessive loads
  • Lack of sufficient training
  • Improper licensing

While truck accident cases are complex, our experienced Shelton, CT lawyers know how to obtain crucial evidence, such as post-accident drug tests, sleep logs, and black box data, to hold the responsible parties accountable and secure the compensation you need.

Motorcycle Accidents

If you were injured in a motorcycle accident in Shelton, you need a dedicated personal injury lawyer. As motorcycle accidents cause victims to suffer life-altering and evenly deadly injuries, insurance companies often spare no expense to defend motorcycle accident lawsuits.

Workers’ compensation insurance can provide extensive benefits including medical care, wage replacement, and employment rehabilitation services. Our Shelton attorneys can help you navigate the workers’ compensation process and ensure you receive the benefits you’re entitled to.

Medical Malpractice

Representation by an experienced Shelton, CT, personal injury lawyer is essential as Connecticut law (Sec. 52-190a) requires a victim to file a certificate of merit with their lawsuit. While doctors and medical malpractice insurance companies fiercely defend medical malpractice lawsuits, the lawyers at the Carter Mario Law Firm have the knowledge and resources to get you the justice and compensation you deserve.

Defective Products

Were you recently injured by a seemingly safe product? Depending on the facts of your case, your injury may have been caused by a:

  • Design defect – The product was unreasonably dangerous due to an inherent flaw in the design.
  • Manufacturing defect – The product was unreasonably dangerous due to the material used during construction or the method used to assemble it.
  • Marketing defect – The product was unreasonably dangerous due to insufficient warnings or instructions.

Under Connecticut law (Sec. 52-572n), you can sue the manufacturer or distributor under multiple legal theories, including strict liability and breach of warranty.

Filing a Personal Injury Lawsuit in Shelton

The first step in filing a personal claim begins with identifying the negligent person or entity who caused your injury. After you identify the correct person, their insurance company will likely request a written demand that includes your medical records and a summary of how their insured is at fault. If your case cannot be resolved via a settlement, our Shelton personal injury lawyers will file a lawsuit, guide you through the litigation process, and take your case to trial to get you the results you deserve!

Who Can File a Personal Injury Claim in Shelton

If you’ve been injured due to someone else’s negligence, you may be eligible to file a claim. If your severe injuries have affected your ability to contribute to your marriage, your spouse may be eligible to file a loss of consortium claim under Connecticut law (Sec. 52-555b). If another person’s negligence caused the death of a close family member, Connecticut law (Sec. 52.555) allows the administrator of their estate to file a wrongful death lawsuit.

Possible Damages You May Recover from Your Injury Claim

If you were in an accident, you are entitled to seek compensation for your losses. The term “damages” is another way of describing the losses you suffered. Under Connecticut law (Sec. 52-572h), you can make claims for economic and non-economic damages.

Economic Damages

Has your accident caused you to suffer physical injuries that require medical care? Are your injuries preventing you from working? You can obtain compensation for your medical expenses and lost wages by making a claim for economic damages.

Non-Economic Damages

In addition to economic damages, you may also be eligible for non-economic damages. A claim for non-economic damages is designed to compensate you for losses that cannot be numerically quantified. Specifically, you can make a non-economic damages claim based on your physical pain and suffering, disfigurement, and loss of quality of life.

FAQs on Shelton Personal Injury Claims

Do you have questions about personal injury claims in Shelton? Luckily, we’ve got answers. The attorneys and staff at the Carter Mario Law Firm always make themselves available to address any concerns and answer any questions our clients may have regarding the status of their claims, along with the claims process.

What is the time limit for filing an injury claim in Connecticut?

You have  limited time to file an injury lawsuit!

It’s crucial to act promptly! Under Connecticut law (Sec. 52-584), you only have two years to file a personal injury lawsuit beginning from the date of your accident. If you fail to file a lawsuit within two years, your claim is permanently barred.

How much does a CT personal injury attorney cost?

You owe nothing unless we win your case!

The attorneys at the Carter Mario Law Firm understand the economic pressure injured victims face following an accident. This is why we work on a contingency fee basis. This means you only pay us if we win your case or negotiate a settlement you approve.

Is there a limit to how much I can recover in damages?

With limited exceptions, there is no limit to the amount of money you can recover in Connecticut!

Many States have legally imposed caps that limit the amount of money injured victims can claim in court. In general, there are no caps on economic or non-economic damages in Connecticut. The only exception is for a common law punitive damages claim. According to the Connecticut Supreme Court, a punitive damages claim not based on a specific statute is limited to litigation costs and attorney fees.

Can I sue for a dog bite in Connecticut?

Yes, you can pursue legal action if you’ve been bitten by a dog in Connecticut!

Many states follow the “one bite” rule, which requires dog bite victims to prove the owner had prior knowledge of the dog’s violent nature. Connecticut does not follow this doctrine. If you were attacked by a dog, Connecticut law(Sec. 22-357) allows you to sue the dog owner under a theory of strict liability.

Will not seeking medical attention for an accident affect my claim?

Failing to obtain medical treatment will hurt your accident claim!

It is essential to obtain medical attention immediately after an accident. Insurance companies use delays and gaps in medical treatment as an excuse to minimize injury claims. Receiving prompt medical treatment will prevent the other person’s insurance company from raising this argument and can help strengthen your claim.
