Personal Injury Practice Areas

Personal Injury

A personal injury case involves two parties: the injured person (plaintiff) and any other party that has caused the injuries (Defendant or Defendants). The plaintiff is the individual that was injured as a result of the negligent actions of the defendant. Those that are found guilty will be held legally responsible for the damages that have occurred. There is a multitude of factors involved, all of which will pertain to the negligent actions of the defendant.

Auto Accidents

After a motor vehicle accident, the police will investigate and typically find one party at fault. We have seen many circumstances where the police investigation is incomplete, unfair, or just wrong. We typically interview all the witnesses to an accident even if the police already have done so. What we find are many details left out and sometimes a completely different story.

Wrongful Death

In Connecticut, claims against those that have caused a death are unlike any other type of personal injury case. These types of cases are unique and require a Connecticut personal injury attorney to have experience dealing with the complexity of a “death case.”

Traumatic Brain Injury

Any trauma to the head can lead to a life altering, and sometimes permanent, brain injury. A person may experience head trauma due to involvement in a motor vehicle crash, an assault, a construction accident, an athletic injury, or a slip and fall on ice.

Defective Products

People are injured or killed by defective products every day in the United States. When a consumer purchases an item, the expectation is that the product will be safe and fit for its intended use and safe for individuals and their families.

Dog Bites

Under Connecticut’s statutory law, dog owners are responsible for injuries caused by a dog bite. The dog bite statute also covers situations where a dog caused injuries from knocking you down or jumping on you.

Motorcycle Accidents

Crashes involving motorcycles represent some of the most complicated accidents to investigate and settle. If you have suffered personal injuries while riding a motorcycle in Connecticut, then contact our personal injury attorneys at Aeton Law Partners.

Truck Accidents

Accidents involving commercial vehicles are typically devastating. A commercial vehicle is a vehicle with a gross weight rating over 10,000 pounds. This includes tractor trailer trucks, tanker trucks, dump trucks, tow trucks, and coach buses.

Pedestrian Accidents

Those pedestrians most vulnerable to being struck by a motor vehicle are adults aged 60 and older and children under the age of 15. In Connecticut, pedestrians in a cross-walk have the right of way to motor vehicles. Despite this law, pedestrians in Connecticut are struck by motor vehicles every day.

Hit and Run

A driver involved in an accident can suffer injuries and property damage of varying degrees. The issues that arise after an accident are complicated and burdensome for an accident victim who is likely trying to pay medical bills and repair or replace damaged property.

Slip and Fall

In Connecticut, the issue of responsibility for a fall is not necessarily who owns the property. Instead, the law requires the person in control of the property to maintain the premises in a reasonably safe manner. This might be a tenant or store owner and not the owner of the property. For example, the law requires the means of entrance and exits to stores to be reasonably safe.

One of the more complicated concepts in Connecticut personal injury law are time limitations called statutes of limitations and statutes of repose. In other words, if you have been injured or a loved one has died as a result of negligence, like auto accidents or medical malpractice, how long do you have until you must file a lawsuit?

Generally, the statute of limitations is the amount of time an injured person in Connecticut must bring a lawsuit. It depends on a few factors, including the type of claim, and sometimes when the injured person discovered the injury.

There are also other limitation periods called statutes of repose and notice periods. Learn more about some of Connecticut’s statutes of limitations, statutes of repose, and notice provisions that apply to injury claims.

Negligence Under Connecticut Law and Damages for Personal Injury

“Personal Injury” means any damage or medical injuries you have received as a result of someone else’s negligence, carelessness, or recklessness. Negligence is defined under Connecticut’s common law. It is a statewide law. In other words, a personal injury claim for negligence in New Haven involves the same law and rules for accident claims for negligence in Middletown or Hartford.

Connecticut law requires members of the public to act as a reasonably prudent person, and when one breaches this duty that person may be liable for any personal injuries or property damage that another person sustains as a result. If injuries were “foreseeable” from someone’s unreasonable conduct, they may be held responsible for negligence. Negligence claims allow injured persons to seek fair, just, and reasonable damages. This includes damages for medical bills, lost wages, impairment of earning capacity, and pain and suffering. The law also allows recovery for permanent injuries or a change in the activities of daily living.

An accident can happen anywhere: a slip and fall at a grocery store, a motor vehicle accident on your local road, or while a pedestrian walks on a sidewalk. If you have been injured as a result of another’s negligence, then you may seek the help of a personal injury attorney. A personal injury attorney can help you navigate the sometimes confusing world of insurance claims and help you get compensation for your injuries.

rating 5 stars

There are really not enough positive words to say to express all the good that my attorney Mr. John Shapiro and his team at Aeton Law Partners have shown throughout this process. I actually found their firm after searching them on google due to being out of state, and have been nothing but impressed. They have made what has been a very difficult, unexpected time, quiet manageable. No matter the outcome I know this firm and especially John Shapiro has given 120% to work for his client, when he believes in his client! He flights for his client and highlights great detail and focus on the points that need to be. I highly recommend his team! John Shapiro, Alex Thompson and the rest of his staff! You will not be disappointed!!
