New Haven Bike And Pedestrian Accident Lawyer
Pedestrians and bicyclists have specific rights under the law, and it is the responsibility of every driver to recognize them. The failure to do so places the safety of innocent people in jeopardy and creates a dangerous situation that can lead to serious or even life-threatening injuries. If you or a loved one has been injured by a negligent driver, you should speak with an experienced personal injury attorney immediately.
At the New Haven, Connecticut, Law Office of Carl A. Secola, Jr., LLC, I represent injury victims and their families in a wide array of complex pedestrian and bike accident claims. I have obtained favorable results for injury victims who were riding in designated bicycle lanes, pedestrians walking in crosswalks or on sidewalks, and many others. I have a substantial background in these matters, and I will do everything in my power to protect your interests.
In the case of Jura v Denegris, I represented a bicyclist who was hit by a negligent motorist. The final offer from the driver’s insurance company prior to trial was $50,000. A New Britain jury awarded my client $3,091,700. Even after a 10 percent reduction of the award for comparative negligence, my client received a net verdict of $2,782,530.
Bicycle riders and pedestrians who are hit by negligent drivers face the possibility of much more severe injuries than other auto accident victims. Suffering a direct impact from a vehicle that is traveling at even a minimal speed can result in broken bones, back and spinal cord injuries, and brain injuries, among others.
I work hard to fully understand your injuries and seek compensation that accommodates all your losses. Some of these injuries require a lifetime of care. I work closely with a group of talented experts who can accurately determine your future needs and the costs associated with them. I am diligent in my pursuit of a settlement or jury verdict that covers any need that may arise.
