Any type of unexpected injury can be difficult, but often, these injuries happen because someone else was careless or negligent. These avoidable injuries often mean you’re facing medical bills, missed work, pain and suffering, and more through no fault of your own. The good news is that the law is on your side in this situation, and you should discuss your legal options with an experienced Bridgeport personal injury attorney from The Law Offices of Thomas A. Morrissey.
Accidents happen in many different ways and cause a wide range of injuries. If you incurred any losses due to your injury, and you believe another person or party was to blame, you should not wait to learn about your rights. Our firm handles the following common types of injury claims, among others:
Car accidents – Millions of people suffer injuries in car crashes each year in the United States, and more than 1,000 people died from crash-related injuries in Illinois in a recent year. Drivers and other parties can be negligent and lead to car accidents in many ways, including distracted driving, drunk driving, speeding, and more.
Truck accidents – Large commercial trucks can cause serious damage and injuries when they crash, and many parties might be at fault. You might have claims against the truck driver, trucking companies, maintenance or loading crews, among others.
Pedestrian and bicycle accidents – Drivers can be negligent and hit people walking or cycling near the roadway. Pedestrians and cyclists can sustain particularly severe traumatic injuries, as they have little to no protective gear against a collision.
Premises liability – Property and business owners can be negligent and allow hazards to exist that cause injuries to customers and visitors. Premises liability accidents can include slip and falls, swimming pool accidents, dog bites, and other property-related incidents.
Construction accidents – Many parties can be responsible for causing construction site accidents, including contractors, road crews, drivers, workers, government agencies, construction companies, and more.
Wrongful death – Sometimes, people are not fortunate enough to survive accidents, and families learn that they lost a close loved one due to someone else’s negligence or wrongful conduct. Our firm is ready to represent you during this difficult time, and we handle the entire process so you can focus on your grieving.
The law gives you rights as an injury victim, but you won’t receive compensation from the responsible parties automatically. Instead, you must file the proper insurance claims – or possibly injury lawsuits – against the liable parties.
You can expect insurance companies to try to minimize your claim, so it is critical that you have the right attorney advocating for your rights to full compensation. We seek compensation for the following losses in many cases:
