Westbrook, Connecticut Personal Injury Lawyers

Westbrook, Connecticut is a town of nearly 7,000 residents that is situated in between New London and New Haven in Middlesex County. It is situated along the Long Island Sound and has many attractions, including sandy beaches, maritime activities, and various dining options.

While Westbrook certainly maintains the character of a small New England, Westbrook deals with the same kinds of problems and issues that can be found anywhere else in the United States, including preventable accidents that result in serious injury. Fortunately for people who are injured in Westbrook, the lawyers of Polito & Associates are qualified to help and regularly represent people injured in a wide variety of accidents, including the following:

No matter what type of accident you have been involved in, you should always have an attorney review the facts of your case. This is true even if you suspect that you were the person responsible for the accident, as negligence is not always clear to people without legal training and experience. We offer free consultations, so there is no financial risk associated with having one of our lawyers analyze your case, and should you choose to retain us to represent you, we will not collect any legal fees unless we successfully recover on your behalf.

Car Accidents in Westbrook, Connecticut

While any type of accident can cause serious injuries, car accidents are always one of the most common causes of accidental serious injury in Connecticut each year. Victims can recover for their injuries if they are able to establish that their accident was the result of the negligence of another person. Examples of negligence that can cause a car accident include:

  • Speeding
  • Failing to yield the right of way
  • Failing to signal a turn
  • Distracted driving
  • Following too closely
  • Failing to maintain a vehicle
  • Driving while impaired
  • Defective vehicle design
  • Ignoring stop signs
  • Ignoring stop lights

Car accidents are a type of personal injury case that requires experienced legal representation. In many instances, one party concedes liability, which means that the only thing the parties need to figure out is how much the case is worth. This usually means that the injured party and the insurance company hash out a settlement agreement that is intended to approximate the amount that the case would be worth if it went to trial. As a result, it is critical for you to work with a lawyer who understands how to determine how much a case is worth as well as how to negotiate with an insurance company in order to get the full value of your case.

Westbrook, Connecticut Nursing Home Injury Lawyers

Many people who require around-the-clock care in the Westbrook area live in nearby nursing homes and assisted living facilities such as Tidelawn Manor, Meadowbrook, Essex Meadows, Aaron Manor, and Apple Rehab. While these facilities exist in order to provide care to some of the most vulnerable among us, the unfortunate reality is that thousands of nursing home residents are the victims of abuse and neglect each year. Nursing home abuse and neglect can result in physical injuries, falls, isolation, depression, malnutrition, bedsores, untreated medical problems, and many other serious issues that can affect residents’ quality of life. Fortunately, in many instances, abused or neglected residents can hold the facility liable by filing a personal injury claim.
