West Hartford Personal Injury Lawyers

Were you or a close family member recently injured in an accident in West Hartford, CT? You need someone who will protect your interests and fight for the compensation you need to rebuild your life. Insurance companies spare no expense contesting personal injury claims, so representation by an experienced personal injury attorney in West Hartford is essential.

Trust Carter Mario’s 30+ Years Experience As Personal Injury Lawyers

At Carter Mario Law Firm, our personal injury lawyers have served clients in West Hartford for over 30 years. Insurance companies and their attorneys know who we are and know we are not afraid to litigate difficult cases on behalf of our injured clients. Our personal injury lawyers have a proven track record of success and are dedicated to helping our clients receive the compensation they deserve.

We’ve Recovered Over $1 Billion For Our Personal Injury Clients 

Many law firms claim to fight for their clients but, in reality, only care about obtaining minimal settlement offers. They do not want to invest the time or resources to properly litigate a personal injury lawsuit. Our top-notch personal injury attorneys have successfully recovered over one billion dollars in compensation for personal injury clients. 

Personal Injury Cases We Handle in West Hartford 

Unlike other personal injury law firms that only handle car accidents, the West Hartford personal injury lawyers at the Carter Mario Law Firm do not limit themselves to one practice area. Instead, our law firm represents injured victims in several related practice areas. Specifically, our West Hartford, CT legal team handles:

  • Automobile accidents
  • Motorcycle accidents
  • Tractor-trailer accidents
  • Workers’ compensation claims
  • Medical malpractice
  • Product liability
  • Slip and falls

Car Accidents

Despite numerous laws and safety features, car accidents occur in West Hartford and throughout Connecticut with alarming regularity. Being involved in a car accident can have a devastating impact on your life. Our personal injury lawyers are not afraid to fight the other driver’s insurance company for the compensation you deserve.

Truck Accidents

Due to their size and heavy cargo loads, collisions involving trucks often result in severe or fatal injuries. Insurance companies hire aggressive lawyers to defend truck accident lawsuits due to the high financial exposure they face. Our knowledgeable team is well-versed in handling truck accident cases and will work tirelessly to hold the responsible parties accountable for their negligence.

Motorcycle Accidents

Motorcycle accidents can cause catastrophic injuries. This is because motorcycle riders have no physical protection against external objects other than helmets and other protective equipment. If you have been injured in a motorcycle accident in West Hartford, our personal injury lawyers can assist you in pursuing fair compensation for your medical expenses, lost wages, and pain and suffering.

Workers’ Compensation

To have a viable workers’ compensation claim, you must be an employee who suffered an accidental injury while in the course of your employment. Workers’ compensation insurance provides several benefits to injured workers and their families. If you have been injured on the job, our West Hartford personal injury lawyers can guide you through the complexities of the workers’ compensation system and help you obtain the benefits you need to recover from your injuries and rebuild your life.

Medical Malpractice

Medical malpractice occurs when a doctor administers care that falls below the applicable standard of care for a medical provider in their field. Filing a personal injury lawsuit against a doctor is difficult as Connecticut law requires a certificate of merit to be prepared and filed with the lawsuit. Our Connecticut lawyers have extensive experience in medical malpractice cases and can help you seek justice and compensation for medical errors, misdiagnoses, surgical mistakes, and other forms of negligence.

Defective Products

Unlike other personal injury claims, which require a finding of negligence against the at-fault party, a product liability lawsuit does not require a finding of negligence directly against a manufacturer. Instead, a manufacturer can be held liable based on the following:

  • Defective design – the product was unreasonably unsafe due to a flaw in the design.
  • Defective manufacturing – the product was unreasonably dangerous due to how it was built or prepared.
  • Insufficient warning – while a product may be properly designed and manufactured, it is unreasonably dangerous due to inadequate warning or instructions regarding a potential hazard.

If you have been injured by a defective product, our law firm can help you pursue a product liability claim. 

What You Can Expect From Our Personal Injury Attorneys in West Hartford

At the Carter Mario Law Firm, our attorneys are litigators and true advocates. In addition to aggressive representation, our attorneys and staff strive to provide personalized attention to every client and their family. Additionally, our attorneys will thoroughly investigate the facts of your accident to build a strong personal injury lawsuit against the negligent person.

Who Can File a Personal Injury Claim in West Hartford?

Normally, a personal injury claim can only be pursued by the injured victim. If an accident results in fatal injuries, Connecticut law allows a victim’s estate, and by extension, their family, to pursue a wrongful death claim. In addition to wrongful death claims, there are other instances in which a victim’s family can assert a personal injury claim.

Loss Of Consortium Claim

There are instances in which a victim’s spouse can file a loss of consortium claim. This type of claim seeks compensation for the loss of companionship, affection, and support resulting from the injury of a loved one. If your spouse suffered a serious injury that left them with a permanent disability, our law firm can help you pursue a loss of consortium claim.

Types of Compensation You Can Get in a West Hartford Personal Injury Lawsuit

A frequently used legal term is “damages.” This term describes the physical and financial losses a victim suffered. Under Connecticut law, there are several types of damages a victim can claim.

Economic Damages

Economic damages are the financial losses you suffered from your accident and injury. This includes direct losses such as your medical bills and lost wages. If your injuries are permanent, you can also claim your future lost wages and medical expenses. 

Non-Economic Damages

Accidents cause losses beyond physical injuries and financial losses. They cause victims to experience intense physical pain and suffering, along with severe emotional distress. Accident victims can claim these non-financial losses as their non-economic damages.

West Hartford Personal Injury FAQs

The lawyers at the Carter Mario Law Firm also make themselves available to discuss client concerns and answer all questions.

What is the statute of limitations on personal injury claims in Connecticut?

Each state limits the time a victim has to file a personal injury lawsuit. In Connecticut, the statute of limitations for a personal injury claim is two years from the date of the injury or accident. If you are in an accident in West Hartford, CT, you must file a lawsuit within two years, or you are forever precluded from pursuing your claim.

How much does a personal injury attorney cost in West Hartford?

At the Carter Mario Law Firm, we work on a contingency fee basis for personal injury cases. This means you do not have to pay any upfront fees. Additionally, under our Zero Fee Warranty, we only receive payment if we successfully recover compensation for you via a settlement or judgment.
