Carmody lawyers have extensive experience handling all types of motor vehicle and motorcycle collisions, bicycle, and pedestrian accidents. Our personal injury lawyers investigate each case to determine liability and fault. Depending on the type of case, we work with experienced investigators and reconstructionists to document the scene, photograph the vehicles and injuries, obtain statements, and gather any other information needed for the claim. We understand Connecticut’s automobile-related and insurance laws as well as Uninsured and Underinsured Motorist Coverage issues.
To protect your rights, contact a lawyer immediately after an accident. Do not assume that your insurance company is on your side. If you have been injured by a driver that does not have insurance, you will need to file a claim against your own insurance company, and their goal is to protect their financial interests, not yours.
We can help if you have been injured as the result of:
- Car, truck, and motorcycle accidents
- Claims related to highway or sign defects or potholes
- Drunk driver accidents
- Insurance related claims
- Passenger injuries
- Bicycle accidents
- Uninsured and underinsured motorist claims
Drunk Driving Accidents
Carmody lawyers aggressively pursue full and fair compensation on behalf of our clients and hold negligent, drunk drivers responsible for the injuries they have caused. We handle car accident, truck accident, and motorcycle accident claims. If a drunk driver has injured or killed someone in your family, we can help.
If you have been injured by the negligence of another driver, you may have a right to receive financial compensation for your medical bills, lost wages, pain and suffering, and more. If you lost a family member as a result of a fatal auto accident, you may have a right to receive compensation through a wrongful death claim.
Injuries to Bicyclists and Pedestrians
Carmody’s personal injury lawyers can help if you have been injured by a driver who was violating the rules of the road or otherwise driving in a negligent manner. When drivers fail to exercise caution, people get hurt. Many of these accidents occur at traffic intersections and crosswalks where bicycles and pedestrians have the right of way.Close
While most types of motor vehicle accidents have decreased in recent years, the number of people injured or killed as a result of motorcycle accidents continues to increase. According to data from the National Highway and Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA), more than 5,000 motorcyclists were fatally injured in 2008, an increase of more than two percent from the previous year.
Most motorcycle accidents are the result of careless or reckless drivers, which may include speeding, aggressive driving, drunk driving, failure to obey the rules of the road, and inattentiveness.Close
Rear End Collisions
If you have been injured in a rear end collision, you may think that you have an open and shut case. Obviously, the other driver is at fault if they hit the back of your car.
Unfortunately, it is not that simple. Even in cases where negligence is not difficult to prove, an accident victim must be able to establish the nature of their injuries and provide evidence that details the damages they have sustained, which may include the cost of future medical expenses. If the other driver does not have insurance, you may need to sue your own insurer to seek recovery. If the other driver is a commercial truck driver, they may have more than one type of insurance coverage from which recovery may be obtained.
Contacting an attorney immediately after an accident is always the best way to protect your rights. Our personal injury lawyers can perform a full review of your case, investigate the cause of the accident if necessary and present evidence of your injuries to seek the full and fair compensation you deserve. In some cases, such as an uninsured motorist claim, you may need an attorney to pursue compensation from your own insurance company.
