Polito and Harrington, LLC was there for me in a time of need. Things were unexpected and I did not know what to do and had no one to turn to with this type of experience. My accident, happened two days before a new job, juggling my household’s time and new work responsibilities etc., it was the worst time to get rear-ended in traffic. Thankfully, no one was gravely hurt and I was alone in the car. The damage to my car wasn't too bad. I was hurt but hoped it was from the impact and that it would go away. However, the pain didn't subside. Even after a few doctor visits and physical therapy sessions, I was still in pain and began to be concerned about how much medical I would need and for how long? I didn’t know where to begin or what to do so I thought to consult a lawyer, I was hesitant but did it. I selected a lawyer in my area with positive reviews. I contacted Polito & Harrington and left a voicemail about my situation. Atty Polito reached out to me right away and his first questions for me were, “How are you feeling and how can I help you?” After I explained my concerns, he immediately laid out a clear explanation of how insurances and legal, work in these circumstances, and what we can do to protect myself. My feelings about contacting a lawyer went from hesitant to very relieved. Finally, I am speaking to someone who understood my current state and provided me with clear options, I just wish I had called sooner. Throughout my case, Atty Polito was very kind, compassionate and posses a great deal of knowledge. He and anyone in his office, especially Ruth, answered all my questions and were there for me every step of the way. During this time, I never felt confused or worried. I was confident in the team I selected, because of their assistance, actions and positive results; it meant the world to me. I've learned so much from them and had I not reached out, I would still be lost. My experience with Polito & Harrington was extremely positive and I am grateful for their time and all their help

Auto Injury Accident Statistics Reported in New London, CT


Common Car Accident Injuries in Connecticut

Serious and even catastrophic injuries are often the outcome for far too many involved in Connecticut car accidents. In such cases, there is no dollar figure certain to fully compensate victims for all that has been lost. Yet, substantial financial resources can ease the unexpected burdens produced by harm, including:

  • Spinal cord damage
  • Paralysis
  • Broken bones
  • Herniated discs
  • Scarring
  • Whiplash
  • Concussion
  • Back and neck injuries
  • Skin burns and resulting disfigurement
  • Limb amputations due to nerve damage
  • Injuries to vital internal organs
  • Traumatic brain injury/lasting cognitive impairment
  • Torn ligaments
  • Internal bleeding
  • Death

A motor vehicle accident can incur massive losses in the form of mounting medical bills, lost wages, physical therapy, and rehabilitation expenses. Financial losses also stem from necessary accessibility modifications to the home, property damage, limited future earning capacity, and more. In addition, you may be eligible to receive compensation for non-economic damages, such as pain and suffering. 

Given this stark reality, it is essential for those involved in serious car accidents to pursue the full amount of compensation available to them under state law.
