What we Bring to the Table

We focus our practice on helping personal injury victims recover. As a result, we are often able to settle our clients’ cases more quickly and efficiently than attorneys with less experience in this area of law. Furthermore, if justice demands that a case go to trial, we are equally comfortable in the courtroom as we are at the negotiating table. As a result, we will not hesitate to take a case to trial if it in the best interest of the client.

In our addition to our work in Connecticut courts, we are also licensed to practice in the tribal courts of Mohegan Sun and Foxwoods. Consequently, we are able to represent the rights of individuals who have been injured in accidents while visiting either the Mohegan Sun or Foxwoods casino. We also handle cases in which individuals have been injured by drunk drivers who were over-served by the casinos. Some of other types of tribal claims we regularly handle include the following:

  • Construction accidents
  • Slip and falls
  • Car and truck accidents
  • Accidents involving vehicles owned by the casinos
  • Wrongful death claims
  • Defective game machine injuries
  • Pool and hot tub injuries
  • Negligent security claims

Tribal law cases require specific knowledge of the laws and procedures in these courts, so you always want an attorney with experience in tribal law handling cases arising from such casino injuries.

In addition to tribal law cases, we successfully represent clients in Connecticut and Rhode Island civil court in personal injury cases arising from the following:

  • Auto accidents
  • Truck accidents
  • Motorcycle accidents
  • Drunk driving accidents
  • Nursing home injuries
  • Nursing malpractice
  • Medical malpractice
  • Construction accidents
  • Slip and falls
  • Dog bites
  • Traumatic brain injuries
  • Spinal cord injuries
  • Workplace accidents
  • Wrongful death claims

Each of these claims can be complicated based on the accident that caused the injury. We are familiar with proving negligence, premises liability, malpractice, and other claims to ensure the client recovers for their losses.

Why Refer a Personal Injury Client to Us?

While most attorneys understand the concept of negligence and personal injury cases may seem relatively straightforward, many complications can arise in these cases that can cause trouble for an attorney who has little experience handling personal injury claims.

First, personal injury cases require significant upfront resources due to the contingency fee arrangement. Our law firm has the resources to fully investigate a case, pay filing fees, engage in effective discovery, and cover the other costs of litigation. We also have a network of reliable experts who can be integral to proving a negligence or malpractice claim and a client’s losses. The following are only some experts that may be necessary in such cases:

  • Accident reconstruction experts
  • Medical experts
  • Economic experts
  • Occupational experts
  • Psychological experts

These resources can often make or break a case and our firm has the means to support even the most complex personal injury claims.

In addition, in the rare event that a personal injury case goes to trial, you want to ensure that the client is represented by a law firm with extensive skill and experience in the courtroom.
