There are many ways in which people are injured due to the negligent, careless actions of others. Whether you’ve been hurt in a car crash, a slip and fall incident, or through medical malpractice, you may have a right to seek damages for your medical expenses, lost wages and other losses. At Fiorentino, Howard & Petrone, P.C., in Manchester, our attorneys draw on extensive experience representing victims of personal injury in Eastern and Central Connecticut. You can rely on us to press for the compensation you deserve to fully address the harm you’ve suffered.
Skilled advocates hold negligence drivers liable for auto crash injuries
Motor vehicle accidents can result in serious and even debilitating injuries, requiring expensive medical treatment and rehabilitation. If you’re hurt in an automobile accident in Connecticut, you have the right to seek compensation from the driver or drivers whose negligence was the principal cause. However, your damages will be reduced in proportion to your own negligence, if any, that contributed to the accident. You cannot recover any damages if your negligence was more than 50 percent responsible. Our personal injury lawyers are skilled at establishing your right to be compensated to the fullest extent possible. We pursue insurance claims and if necessary bring lawsuits against the drivers at fault.
Trusted attorneys handle a range of other personal injury cases
We will work to help you recover damages for personal injuries suffered in such scenarios as:
- Premises accidents — Property owners have a responsibility to maintain their premises in a safe condition for guests and other visitors. Our knowledgeable and experienced attorneys can represent you when you are injured through a slip and fall due to unsafe conditions on a business’s or homeowner’s property.
- Medical malpractice — We press to hold physicians and other healthcare providers who fail to meet the standard of care expected in their profession are liable for the injuries they cause to their patients.
- Products liability — Companies may be liable for your injuries caused by defectively designed or manufactured products or by products without adequate warnings or instructions.
- Dog bites — Connecticut follows a strict liability statute when it comes to dog bites, making owners liable for injuries caused by their dogs unless the victim was trespassing, teasing or tormenting the animal. We will seek damages from the owner if you’ve been injured by a dog bite.
We also represent families in wrongful death actions when a negligent act led to the death of a loved one. For these lawsuits and other personal injury claims, there are time limitations, so it’s important to take prompt action. We are ready to represent you vigorously in any injury or wrongful death case we handle on your behalf.
