Stamford Personal Injury Lawyers Handling Your Serious Injury Claim After Negligence of Others A broad definition of “personal injury” includes both physical and psychological injuries as a result of an accident. The most common types of personal injury claims involve motor vehicle crashes, slip/trip and fall accidents, injuries caused by defective products including pharmaceuticals, and medical malpractice. Personal injury also includes specific types of physical injury such as traumatic brain injury and spinal cord injury and wrongful death as well. At the Stamford, Connecticut law offices of Casper & de Toledo our experienced injury and fatal accident attorneys are dedicated to the vigorous pursuit of justice and full compensation for individuals and families devastated by the careless acts of others.

Fighting For Personal Injury Compensation Traditional rules that apply to personal injuries caused by negligent or other wrongful conduct permit accident victims to make a claim for economic and non-economic damages. Economic damages include loss of income, loss of earning capacity and past and future medical expenses. Given the diverse systems of compensation and the variability of earnings of the self-employed, proving loss of earning capacity often involves creativity. An example is proof of “loss of productivity” based upon the injured party’s self-assessment used by Stewart Casper in Duncan v Mill Management Co., a technique validated by Connecticut’s Supreme Court (308 Conn. 1 (2013). In the era of the COVID-19 pandemic, with vast numbers of people losing their jobs, greater creativity will be required to establish economic damages. Non-economic damages include pain and suffering, loss of bodily function, loss of enjoyment of life and other losses involving the quality of life. Typically, a personal injury claim is satisfied by the payment of a sum from the responsible party’s insurance company. Importantly, there is no formula for computing non-economic damages, just as personal injury lawyers do not come from the same mold. The result for your case is individualized–and reflects not only factors specific to you or your family member, but is also honed by your trial lawyers. It is not coincidental that the best results are usually obtained by lawyers whose skills have been tested through the crucible of multiple jury trials. We represent clients throughout the state in a wide range of personal injury and wrongful death claims involving: Car accidents, tractor trailer wrecks, other trucking accidents and motorcycle crashes Slip and falls (defective stairs, sidewalks, walkways) based upon faulty construction, design or improper maintenance.

Committed Advocates Protecting Your Rights in Negotiation or at Trial The vast majority of personal injury claims related to automobile accidents and slip/trip and fall accidents are resolved by settlement without trial. Personal injury claims involving defective products and medical malpractice are more likely to result in a trial. Regardless of the likelihood that a particular claim will result in a settlement or a trial, representation by lawyers who are recognized for skill in trial techniques and experience in the courtroom is very important because insurance companies and corporations will evaluate a personal injury case with the identity of the lawyer in mind. Here at Casper & de Toledo, we pride ourselves on our professionalism, our training, our courtroom experience and our results.
