Experience in Guiding You Through the Medical Malpractice and Personal Injury Process In Stamford

We recognize that many of our clients are dealing with a lawsuit and the court system for the first time. We understand their anxiety and confusion about a process that greatly affects their lives and the lives of their loved ones.

Our Stamford personal injury attorneys bring decades of experience with Connecticut law to each case, and our primary objective is the most favorable outcome available for you. We will make sure you are informed about the status of your case, as well as the long-term considerations that you need to keep in mind as we pursue your injury or wrongful death claim.

In court, our lawyers educate jurors about the case by providing expert witness testimony, video depositions, medical illustrations, anatomical models, enlargement of photographs and “day in the life” videos.

Our attorneys not only describe to juries how the injuries have altered the lives of our clients, but we demonstrate it in the courtroom. Some jurors have commented after trials that they were able to understand complex medical conditions, complicated surgical procedures and the anatomy of the body due to the ability of our trial lawyers to explain all aspects of medical procedures and terminology of the case in ways that the average person could understand.

Our seasoned staff realizes that when an individual or a family experiences tragedy, suffering and loss associated with serious injury or death, they want a law firm who will listen to them, understand their problems, and deal with their concerns in a sensitive manner.

Why You Need Stamford Personal Injury Lawyers to Help You with a Claim

Personal injury claims may seem straightforward, but they often are not. Those responsible for the accident may deny their responsibility, or their insurers may refuse to pay the claim or offer far less than you deserve. A personal injury claim requires documentation, medical reports, negotiations, and much more. Our personal injury lawyers know what it takes to develop your case from start to finish. No matter what the case requires, we are ready to handle it.

Our seasoned personal injury lawyers can:

  • Fight for your rights. When people are injured, they need support and advice that they can trust. In many cases, insurance companies will not want to pay a fair settlement, but a personal injury lawyer knows how to bring them to the negotiation table. Even when insurers are willing to pay, they often offer far less than an injury victim deserves. Our lawyers will fight for the compensation you deserve.
  • Build a strong and persuasive claim. At every step in a personal injury claim, insurers and individuals will demand proof of your injuries. It’s a time-consuming and confusing process that is easy to get wrong. However, our lawyers have decades of experience developing personal injury claims, and we will gather everything that your claim needs. We will investigate the accident, speak with witnesses, consult with experts, and more.
  • Handle the paperwork and hassle of a claim. Personal injury claims can generate huge amounts of information including police reports, medical records, witness testimony, and many others. A claim depends on these records, but gathering them and compiling them can be exhausting. When you’re recovering from an injury, put your time into your recovery and let a personal injury lawyer handle the rest.
  • Negotiate with insurance companies. Sometimes it’s difficult to figure out just what an injury has cost you. Our lawyers will evaluate your claim, gather documentation, and negotiate with insurance companies for a settlement. We know how insurers operate and we know how to effectively negotiate with them for the full and fair compensation you deserve. Don’t leave your settlement to chance – and don’t leave it up to the insurance company.
  • Take your claim to court if needed. In most cases, defendants and their insurance companies will settle before a trial is needed. However, if your claim must go to court, it’s important to have a knowledgeable and experienced trial lawyer in your corner. Court proceedings and trials are governed by complex rules and procedures. An experienced trial lawyer will develop your case on the evidence, draft a legal strategy, and represent you throughout the case with the strength and integrity you deserve.

No matter how you were injured or where you are at in your claim, our experienced personal injury lawyers want to help. If you have been injured, get in touch with us today.

Filing a Personal Injury Lawsuit in Stamford

Our skilled attorneys can help demonstrate that the other party was at fault for your injury. During your lawsuit, we will fight to ensure that you receive appropriate compensation for your losses, which may include:

  • Pain and suffering in the past and future
  • Past and future medical expenses
  • Lost income and wages from work
  • Loss of earning capacity in the future
  • Hiring home health care staff
  • Emotional distress and mental anxiety
  • Damages for permanent disabilities and limitation of activities
  • Wrongful death (if you have lost a loved one in an accident)

The statute of limitations to bring a medical malpractice claim in Connecticut depends on the facts of the case. Typically, the statute of limitations for filing a medical malpractice claim must be within two years of the negligent act. If the injury was not discovered at the time of the malpractice, then a patient

can bring a claim for medical malpractice within two years of the date from which the injury was discovered or reasonably should have been discovered. However, medical malpractice claims cannot be instituted more than three years after the date of the act of medical negligence. This statute of limitations applies to minors and adults.
