Connecticut Personal Injury Lawyers Assist Victims of Negligence

Established Bridgeport firm represents clients in Fairfield County and the surrounding area

Paying off medical bills and other expenses associated with a personal injury can be a real challenge. If someone else is responsible for your condition, MeehanLaw, LLC in Bridgeport can give you effective legal counsel as you seek reimbursement from the liable parties. Whether someone has been hurt in an auto accident, a fall, as a result of medical malpractice or due to some other type of negligence, our accomplished trial lawyers press for full compensation in court and at the negotiation table. We have the skill and experience to take on defendants and assess the potential value of your claim. Regardless of the complexity of your case, our attorneys will clearly outline your rights and work tirelessly to achieve the reimbursement you deserve.

Litigators handle cases involving motorcycle and auto accidents, falls and medical malpractice

We are accomplished civil litigators who handle a wide array of personal injury claims, including cases pertaining to:

  • Motorcycle crashes —Motorcycle accident victims have a much greater risk of serious harm because they lack the protection offered by cars and trucks. In cases involving road rash, broken bones and more serious medical conditions, our attorneys seek relief for injured bikers.
  • Car accidents — After a car accident, we represent injured parties in lawsuits and insurance claims against at-fault drivers.
  • Medical malpractice — If you know or suspect that a healthcare provider harmed you or a loved one by failing to meet professional standards of care, our firm can bring in medical experts to evaluate the circumstances surrounding your claim.
  • Slip and fall injuries — Property owners must employ reasonable measures to protect visitors against hazards that might cause slip and fall injuries. We bring premises liability actions on behalf of injured clients.
  • Dog bites — We advocate for people who have been hurt by dog bites to obtain legal relief and hold pet owners accountable.
  • Pedestrian accidents — In cases where a motor vehicle strikes a pedestrian, we review the evidence exhaustively to see if distractions, alcohol or other factors led to the collision.

Our firm offers a free initial consultation so that victims can get the immediate legal assistance they need.

Effective attorneys pursue damages for medical bills and lost income

Most people understand that they are usually entitled to damages if they’ve been injured by a negligent individual or business. However, our seasoned Bridgeport attorneys can identify potential damages that may not be as obvious. In addition to reimbursement for medical bills and lost wages, you might be able to recover rehabilitation expenses and related costs, such as travel to and from healthcare treatments. Various types of noneconomic damages are also available under Connecticut law, including compensation for pain and suffering, mental distress, disfigurement, and the loss in enjoyment of life.

Longtime advocates conduct a detailed assessment of injury claims

Once you’ve been injured in an accident, you might receive a quick settlement offer from the defendant’s lawyer or insurance company. But it’s important to realize their goal is to complete cases quickly and cheaply — not to ensure your full needs are met. We’ve served clients in the Bridgeport area since 1961 and know what type of financial recovery you should demand. Our lawyers review physical evidence, interview witnesses, retain subject-area experts and take other steps to bolster your claim.

Experienced attorneys seek appropriate relief in wrongful death litigation

A person who dies due to someone else’s careless or willful actions leaves families with an emotional and financial loss, but justice is available in wrongful death actions. Within two years of the fatal incident, the representative for the victim’s estate can seek damages from the at-fault party to cover funeral expenses, lost earnings, and medical expenses that accumulated prior to the wrongful death. Whether the fatality was caused by an auto accident, defective product, instance of medical malpractice or something else, we provide comprehensive legal support.
