Personal Injury Attorney

Accident injuries in New Haven and surrounding Connecticut communities send thousands of people to emergency rooms every year. Some victims of careless behavior experience years of suffering from painful and disabling injuries. The personal injury attorneys at Dolan Injury Lawyers, PLLC help accident victims recover compensation when the negligent conduct of another person or business causes their injuries.

Injury victims need compassionate, effective advocates who can take on the burden of handling their accident claims. We work hard to maximize injury settlements so that our clients can improve the quality of their lives. When an insurance company refuses to agree to a fair settlement, we fight to make juries understand the impact that injuries have on our clients.

We pride ourselves on the personal, caring attention that each client receives. We do not charge a fee in personal injury cases unless we obtain compensation for the client.

Helping Victims of Motor Vehicle Accidents

The experienced injury lawyers at Dolan Injury Lawyers, PLLC help Connecticut injury victims who were involved in motor vehicle accidents that were caused by a careless driver. We provide skilled representation to victims of:

  • Car crashes
  • Motorcycle crashes
  • Collisions with large trucks
  • Bicycle accidents
  • Pedestrian accidents
  • Boating accidents

When drunk drivers cause an accident, we determine whether the person or business who served alcohol to the driver can be held responsible under Connecticut’s dram shop law. We also help motor vehicle injury victims bring claims against their own insurers under the uninsured or underinsured motorist provisions of their insurance policies.

Helping Victims of Negligent Property Owners

Dolan Injury Lawyers, PLLC represents Connecticut injury victims in claims against homeowners, pet owners, businesses, and other property owners. Careless conduct by property owners can lead to serious injuries. Visitors slip and fall when businesses fail to clean up spills and when homeowners neglect to clear snow from their home entrances.

Businesses and homeowners are also responsible when they fail to repair dangerous property conditions or to warn visitors of hidden hazards. Injuries from unsafe premises are almost always the fault of a negligent property owner. Pet owners are responsible for dog bite injuries when they fail to control their animals.

Helping Victims of Unsafe Products

Product manufacturers and sellers can be held responsible when consumers suffer injuries that result from dangerous or defective products. The product liability attorneys at Dolan Injury Lawyers, PLLC investigate consumer injuries to determine whether an unsafe design or a defect in manufacturing contributed to the product user’s injury.

Helping Victims of Significant Accident Injuries

Even an injury that seems minor at the time of an accident can have serious and lasting consequences. Our New Haven personal injury law firm helps victims of all significant accident injuries, including:

  • Head injuries
  • Brain injuries
  • Broken bones
  • Crush injuries
  • Internal organ damage
  • Spine injuries
  • Nerve damage
  • Neck injuries
  • Back injuries
  • Hand and foot injuries
  • Amputations
  • Knee and other joint injuries
  • Facial lacerations
  • Eye injuries
  • Muscle, tendon, and other soft tissue injuries

Even small injuries might turn into serious injuries over time. No case should settle until the extent of the victim’s injuries is known. To learn what you need to do to protect your right to receive compensation, call Dolan Injury Lawyers, PLLC as soon as you can after experiencing a Connecticut accident injury.

Helping Injury Victims Obtain Fair Compensation

The injury lawyers at Dolan Injury Lawyers, PLLC understand how accident injuries can have a devastating impact on a victim’s life. Coping with pain is stressful. Injuries place a strain on relationships and make it more difficult to accomplish goals. Daily activities that were once taken for granted, such as lifting a child and getting dressed in the morning, can become daily challenges.

Accident victims are entitled to fair compensation from the negligent individuals and businesses that caused or contributed to their injuries. Depending on the nature and extent of the injury, compensation may include:

  • Loss of wages
  • Loss of future earning capacity
  • Past and future medical expenses
  • Past and future cost of physical therapy
  • Medical appliance costs (such as wheelchairs)
  • Prescription costs
  • Vocational rehabilitation expenses (for life-changing disabilities)
  • Expenses needed to cope with a permanent loss of mobility (such as a wheelchair-accessible van and remodeling a home to widen entryways)
  • Home health care assistance
  • Pain and suffering
  • Emotional distress and mental anguish

Every case is different. No formula can be used to calculate the settlement value of an injury claim. A diligent investigation of the facts will enable a personal injury law firm to negotiate a fair settlement of an injury victim’s case.

We deal with the range of personal injury cases including:
