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.
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:
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.
When you’ve been in an auto accident or some other type of vehicle collision, you might face physical, financial and legal challenges. We are experienced Fairfield County litigators who handle insurance claims and lawsuits linked to crashes that occur on Connecticut roads. Our familiarity with the area and the tactics used by insurers gives victims and their families the support they need to reject inadequate settlement offers and demand the payment they deserve. In cases involving trucks and other commercial vehicles, we’ll closely investigate the facts to determine if regulations governing the operation of these rigs were violated. If you’ve been hurt while walking or riding a motorcycle, you can count on us to prepare a thorough case regarding the driver’s negligence and the specific injuries that you’ve endured.
