Our Practice Areas
Personal injuries are typically caused by accidents brought on by someone’s carelessness. Common causes of personal injury include car accidents, slip and fall accidents, and accidents caused by dangerous products. Generally, lawsuits seeking damages for personal injury assert that the defendant’s negligence caused the plaintiff’s harm. A dedicated personal injury attorney can evaluate your case and help you develop your potential claims.
Motor Vehicle Accidents
Motor vehicle collisions are common in Connecticut and are one of the leading causes of personal injury. If you were harmed in a motor vehicle accident, you may be able to recover damages via a civil lawsuit if you are able to establish liability. Damages recoverable include the cost of any medical treatment, lost wages, and compensation for pain and suffering. Our Plainville and Bristol personal injury attorneys can help you contest any arguments that you contributed to your own damages.
Being charged with a crime can be a harrowing experience, but the fact that you are facing criminal charges does not mean you will be found guilty. Rather, the State is required to prove each element of the alleged crime beyond a reasonable doubt, and if it cannot, it should not be able to obtain a conviction.
A DUI conviction can alter your rights and reputation. Pursuant to Connecticut law, anyone who operates a vehicle with an elevated blood alcohol content or while under the influence of drugs or alcohol may be charged with a DUI. Most DUI arrests arise out of traffic stops. If the police did not have reasonable suspicion that a person is committing a crime or violating a traffic law prior to effectuating a stop, however, the stop may be illegal, and any evidence obtained during the stop may be inadmissible.
Under Connecticut law, if an employee is injured at work, he or she may be entitled to benefits from his or her employer’s workers’ compensation insurer. There are strict deadlines employees must comply with in filing claims, however, and if they fail to meet these deadlines, they may waive the right to recover. In addition to seeking workers’ compensation benefits, our personal injury lawyers can help Plainville and Bristol residents pursue third-party claims based on work injuries when appropriate.
Real estate transactions are often fast-paced and complicated, and it is prudent for anyone considering buying or selling real estate to engage an attorney to safeguard their rights. An attorney can assist in checking the title of any property, drafting contracts to include critical terms and provisions, and negotiating prices and rates with the hopes of avoiding litigation in the future.
Probate and Wills
Although end-of-life decisions can be a difficult topic, it is prudent for all people to engage in estate planning to protect their rights and the rights of their loved ones. Wills, powers of attorney, living wills, and the appointment of health care agents are powerful tools to make sure your wishes are followed. We are happy to consult with you about these matters, to ensure that your plans are realized after you’re gone.
Business transactions often result in disputes, and if these disputes cannot be resolved, the parties may require court intervention. In many instances, business litigation involves a breach of contract claim. Other claims often set forth in lawsuits arising out of business transactions include fraud, intentional interference with a contract, and breach of fiduciary duty. In these situations a litigator from Jainchill & Beckert can help.
