We are persistent advocates and attend to every aspect of your personal injury or wrongful death case, no matter how complex, in the following areas:

  • Car accidents ― Whether you have been in a serious accident or a minor collision, we handle your personal injury, wrongful death or uninsured or underinsured motorist case, regardless of the complexity of the case.
  • Truck accidents— Trucks are inherently dangerous because of their size and weight, whether they are operated by independent drivers or drivers for truck companies who ignore the rules designed to protect the public. Catastrophic injuries often result from such disregard for the safety of others. Multiple persons or companies may be responsible for this behavior. We manage the complexities of these cases and make sure your legal rights are protected.
  • Motorcycle accidents ― Everyone must share the road. If your accident results from the recklessness of a driver of another vehicle, from hazardous roads conditions or even due to a motorcycle’s design defects, you have the legal right to seek compensation.  We can advise you of your rights in these situations.
  • Wrongful death ― If a member of your family died because of another’s negligence, you may have a wrongful death case. We investigate the cause and take appropriate action on your behalf.

Skilled Motorcycle Accident Lawyers Serving Connecticut

We understand bikes

Motorcycle accidents are not the same as car collisions and other personal injury cases. The structure, maneuvering and handling characteristics of bikes create unique circumstances specific to motorcycle cases — and these circumstances often result in more severe injuries. To win you the compensation you deserve, the Connecticut motorcycle accident attorneys at Brown, Paindiris & Scott, LLP consider such key aspects of motorcycle claims as:

  • Higher likelihood of extensive injury resulting from even an apparently minor accident
  • Lack of safeguards to protect you from permanent, life-threatening injuries
  • Failure of motorists to detect or yield to motorcyclists
  • Grave consequences when motorists tailgate or cut off cyclists
  • Effect of unsafe road conditions, such as potholes or uneven surfaces, on motorcyclists

  • Loss of love, affection and companionship
  • Medical costs
  • Funeral expenses
  • Mental anguish
  • Loss of future earnings
  • Loss of protection and guidance
  • Benefits lost due to the victim’s death, including medical insurance

Our attorneys can also help you recover damages for pain and suffering if your family member did not file a personal injury lawsuit prior to passing.
