Multiple Record-Setting Verdicts Family firm that treats clients like family
Wrongful death is the worst thing that a family can go through in Connecticut. While it by no means makes up for a preventable death in the family, filing a wrongful death claim can provide some measure of justice to grieving survivors. A lawsuit can hold a wrongdoer accountable and provide financial compensation to help the family move forward.

If you get injured in an event such as a car accident, you may assume you will receive a fair payment to cover your medical costs and property damage – especially if you were not at fault or have never missed a payment on your insurance policy. Unfortunately, insurance companies do not always act in good faith.
If an accident in Connecticut leaves you with a permanent disability, financial assistance is often available through one or more insurance programs. You may qualify for benefits through the Social Security Disability Insurance system, for example, or a personal injury claim payout. Below are answers to frequently asked questions to get an idea of what to expect from the disability claims process.
Every year, thousands of motorcyclists sustain serious and life-changing injuries in car and traffic accidents. Statistically, motorcyclists are about 28 times more likely to die in motor vehicle accidents than vehicle passengers. Part of being a responsible driver is using safe driving techniques when sharing the road with these vulnerable road users.
By definition, intersections are locations where two different types of traffic intersect. This makes them highly dangerous areas for drivers, bicyclists and pedestrians. If a negligent driver ignores a stop sign or fails to yield the right-of-way at an intersection, it can result in a deadly motor vehicle collision. Take extra care at intersections in Connecticut to protect yourself and others.
All drivers must carefully follow traffic laws and adhere to road rules that help keep them and others safe. But when on the road with large commercial trucks, it pays to practice extra caution. Semi-trucks pose a particular danger to other vehicles on the road for a number of reasons beyond their immense size and weight, which dwarfs common family vehicles on the roadways, giving other vehicles a distinct disadvantage in an accident.
In at-fault insurance states like Connecticut, it matters who is at fault in an accident, including pedestrian accidents. The person who causes an accident to occur is the one who must pay for the injured party’s damages, typically through their insurance policy. While Connecticut law stipulates that drivers have the responsibility to protect pedestrians by slowing down, stopping, and taking other means to avoid a collision with a vulnerable pedestrian, it also views jaywalking as a violation of the state’s traffic and pedestrian laws.
An accident can happen at work when you least expect it, potentially causing serious injuries that interfere with your ability to do your job and require expensive medical care. In this scenario, Connecticut’s workers’ compensation system may provide financial reimbursement for your losses.
The State of Connecticut Workers’ Compensation Program was established by the Workers’ Compensation Act, located in Chapter 568 of the General Statutes of Connecticut.
Walking as a means of transportation can be a great way to get around. It can save you money and time, and allow you to sneak some exercise into your day. Yet, it can also be dangerous. Across the United States, pedestrian fatalities are increasing faster than any other traffic-related fatality.
