Car Accidents And Personal Injury Claims In Connecticut

When you have been injured in a car accident, it can be difficult to concentrate on anything else but the pain you are feeling. At the Law Offices of James L. O'Rourke, our team of dedicated lawyers understands the physical, financial and legal challenges you are facing. We are determined to achieve full and fair compensation for you that will ultimately help you recover from your accident.

A Legal Team Committed To Your Case

Our comprehensive Connecticut personal injury practice is led by lawyers James L. O'Rourke and Margaret C. DiCicco. Together, our Bridgeport car accidents attorneys offer our clients more than 50 years of reliable and effective combined legal experience handling a wide range of serious car accidents throughout Connecticut, in the cities of Stamford, Norwalk, West Haven, Stratford and Fairfield.

Car accidents can be devastating and can have a significant impact on your life. Our team is fully prepared to handle the legal complications while you focus on recovering from your injuries.

Common Causes Of Car Accidents

There are as many causes of car accidents as there are drivers on the road. However, in our practice we frequently see cases involving all types of collisions, including:

Our team will work closely with you to learn about the circumstances surrounding your accident. We will collect valuable information, including police reports, medical records and witness testimony that will help to prove that your injuries directly resulted from a negligent driver or a defective auto part.

Compensation After An Accident

We are committed to helping you obtain maximum compensation for the physical, emotional and financial damages you have suffered. This includes pursuing compensation to help you cover:

  • Medical expenses
  • Lost wages if you were unable to return to work immediately
  • Damages for your pain and suffering
  • Other out-of-pocket expenses associated with your accident and injury

In addition to your personal injury claim, our lawyers will work with the involved insurance companies to explore all options for recovery and to seek the maximum coverage available under the policy. In cases involving drivers without insurance or hit-and-run accidents, you may also have coverage under your uninsured/underinsured motorist (UIM) insurance, which is required under Connecticut law.

We can help you understand the complex insurance laws and legal claims that may apply in your case, and we will handle any legal complications so you can concentrate on your own recovery.

Fatal Car Accidents And Wrongful Death

When an accident results in fatal injuries, no amount of compensation can make up for the loss. However, the law recognizes the financial costs associated with the loss of a life. We can help you through this process, which is known as a wrongful death claim. Through this process, you can secure compensation to help you cover funeral costs, medical expenses, the loss of income and the loss of companionship.
