Please read the following information and contact our personal injury lawyers in Stratford if you feel that you have been a victim of personal injury.
Surviving family members of victims who have died as a result of the actions or negligence of others most often file wrongful death lawsuits. The lawsuit can be filed citing damages for physical, emotional, or financial difficulties that arise because of the death. It is the responsibility of the plaintiff(s) and the wrongful death lawyers to prove that the defendant’s actions directly caused the death of the victim, or that the death could have been prevented if the defendant had not acted negligently. If you would like to review your case, please contact our Connecticut wrongful death lawyers at today to schedule a consultation and review your case.
Head injuries resulting in traumatic or acquired brain injuries can be financially, physically, and emotionally traumatic to victims and to their families. Traumatic brain injuries, often caused by extreme impact of the head, occur in auto accidents, falls, and shaken baby syndrome. If it can be proven that the action or negligence of the defendant directly caused or failed to prevent a head or brain injury, then the victim is entitled to compensation under the law. If you or a loved one has been a victim of a head injury, the personal injury lawyers at WLH Law Firm may be able to help. Contact our Connecticut wrongful death lawyers today!
Motorcycle / ATV Accidents
Motorcycles and ATVs are inherently dangerous because they leave the driver unprotected. Additionally, they are smaller and harder to see than other vehicles on the road or area. Even when the driver of a motorcycle or ATV follows all safety precautions, accidents do occur and the physical damages to the driver can be enormous. In some cases, the auto accident is caused by the negligence or dangerous actions of others. Examples of these are when another motorist drives his or her vehicle in an unsafe way or a city fails to provide safe roads, riding areas, and driving conditions. If you or a loved one has been involved in a motorcycle or ATV accident because of the unsafe actions or negligence of others, please contact our Connecticut wrongful death and personal injury lawyers in Stratford today. We can help you receive the compensation you need.
Because of their size and weight, tractor-trailer trucks already pose a threat to smaller vehicles on the road. When you add to their size the fact that drivers are often exhausted and aggressive, the danger only increases. Owners and drivers of tractor-trailer trucks should be held accountable for the injuries they cause. If you or a loved one has been injured due to the actions or negligence of a tractor-trailer driver or organization, you may be entitled to receive compensation for your injuries. Please contact our personal injury firm today.
Construction sites pose a threat to workers and passersby for several reasons. First, construction companies often require employees to work from high elevation or with dangerous materials. For example, employees are often injured in scaffolding collapses or after being exposed to hazardous chemicals. Additionally, passersby can fall victim to construction accidents. Construction companies should be held liable for injuries sustained by employees or passersby. If you or someone you love has been injured in a construction accident, please contact our personal injury law firm, serving Fairfield, Milford, and Bridgeport clients, at our Stratford practice.
Spinal Cord Injury
Spinal cord injuries are particularly harmful because they can cause a myriad of health problems. Often, patients with spinal cord injury experience impaired sensation and paralysis. When vertebrae in the spinal column are broken or crushed, the spinal cord may also suffer injury. It is not uncommon for a spinal cord injury to cause paralysis below the point of injury. The effects of spinal cord injury can be dramatic – financially, physically, and emotionally. If you or someone you love has been injured because of another’s actions or negligence, please contact our experienced Connecticut wrongful death and personal injury lawyers in Stratford, serving Milford, Bridgeport, and Fairfield clients.
Slips and Falls
Property and business owners have a responsibility to protect citizens who enter their property. In cases where the owner fails to prevent slippery or uneven surfaces or does not adequately mark those areas, they should be held liable for injuries that occur as a result. Slips and falls can result in injuries ranging from minor to severe, depending on the age of the individual and the circumstances surrounding the fall. If you or a loved one has been injured from a fall that could have been prevented, please contact our Connecticut office for our wrongful death and personal injury lawyers today to review your case.
If you or a loved one has been a victim of a vicious animal attack or dog bite in Connecticut, our wrongful death and personal injury lawyers, serving Milford, Bridgeport, and Fairfield, in Stratford may be able to help you receive compensation for your injuries. Pet owners have a duty to restrain their animals and prevent them from causing harm to citizens. When a pet attacks and injures an individual, the pet owner should be held liable for medical costs and any emotional trauma suffered by the victim. Even if the animal has no history of violence, the owner must take every precaution to protect his or her neighbor and other citizens. Please contact us for legal assistance today.
