Connecticut Personal Injury Lawyers Pursue Compensation for Victims

Experienced Norwalk attorneys work to hold negligent parties accountable

Medical costs and other damages associated with a personal injury mount quickly, so victims are compelled to hold negligent parties accountable. If you’ve been hurt in a car accident, a fall, an instance of medical malpractice or as a result of some other type of carelessness, DePanfilis & Vallerie, LLC will work to obtain suitable compensation. Our Norwalk lawyers have more than 120 years of combined experience and use the knowledge we’ve acquired to press defendants and their insurance companies for appropriate reimbursement for healthcare costs, lost income and other damages. In personal injury and wrongful death cases, we are skilled litigators who can evaluate what type of financial recovery is likely so you can make an informed decision on how to proceed.

Established firm takes on cases arising from falls and medical malpractice

Unlike some states, Connecticut does not cap personal injury damages, so we aggressively pursue maximum compensation for medical bills, wages that weren’t earned due to the injury, and noneconomic damages to address pain and suffering stemming from the incident. We explain how this compensation might be calculated in your case based on our history litigating Connecticut actions in a wide array of matters, including those relating to:

  • Slip and fall injuries — If you or a family member suffered a slip and fall injury because someone else’s property was not properly maintained, you might be able to collect compensation. In cases involving damaged walking surfaces, spills on store floors and other premises liability claims, our attorneys advocate for victims. Even if you’re held to be partly responsible for your fall, you can still recover damages as long as your share of the fault is less than 51 percent.
  • Medical malpractice — Suing a negligent doctor or hospital can be a complicated process. For a Connecticut medical malpractice claim to go forward, the plaintiff must complete a certificate of good faith that includes an expert’s opinion that professional standards of care were violated. We have the skill and resources to handle these complex actions and hold faulty healthcare providers accountable.
  • Wrongful death — When careless or reckless acts have fatal consequences, our firm assists estate representatives in pursuit of the damages available under Connecticut law. Like injury claims, these lawsuits must be filed within two years of the incident. Recovery can include reimbursement for funeral and burial expenses, income the victim would have earned and the pain endured by the decedent before he or she passed.

Most personal injury cases are subject to the two-year statute of limitations, but that timeframe can be extended by a year in certain instances if the harm was not immediately discoverable. No special extension exists for situations where the plaintiff is a minor or disabled.
