Danbury Personal Injury Attorneys
The saying goes that accidents happen when we least expect them. We can’t always prepare for an accident, but there are steps we can take to help us recover from one. Sometimes this means reaching out for legal help.
Personal injury cases allow victims to pursue compensation for their suffering against the at-fault party. Victims may be dealing with painful injuries, ongoing medical care, and lost wages from time off work. A personal injury claim can relieve these pressures by giving you the money for recovery. If you decide to pursue a personal injury claim, there are a lot of good reasons to have an experienced attorney fight on your behalf.
The attorneys at The Flood Law Firm have decades of experience in successfully handling personal injury claims. Take that first step towards winning your case and securing the compensation you need by contacting The Flood Law Firm.
Types of Cases We Handle
The Flood Law Firm has represented an array of personal injury case types, including:
None of us want to experience a car accident that lands us in the hospital. Unfortunately, this may very well happen at some point in our lives. If the other driver is to blame for your injuries, you have the right to pursue them for damages.
When we lose a loved one, our lives change forever. The grief can be crippling, and we may not know what to do next. Sometimes legal action may be appropriate. When another party is responsible for the passing of somebody dear to us, that at-fault party can be held responsible in a wrongful death claim.
Many people these days consider their four-legged friends to be more than just friends; they are true family members. Dog attack and bite cases can be fraught with difficult issues given the close relationship between the owner and their pet. Also, the dog owner and victim may be acquainted.
When you visit someone else’s property, you do so with the expectation that the premises will be reasonably safe. In fact, property owners are required by law to keep their premises safe for visitors. When a visitor is hurt due to a lack of precautions on the part of the property owner, the victim can file a premises liability claim.
When a medical professional does not meet standards of care and jeopardizes the health of the patient, a medical malpractice suit may be pursued. Prescription mistakes, wrong diagnosis, and surgical errors are frequently cited as the basis for a medical malpractice claim.
A blow to the head, even a minor bump, can lead to TBI. Car accidents, falls, and assaults are among the leading causes of TBI, and may be the results of another party’s negligence.
Taking a prescription drug requires basic trust on the part of the user: that the drugmaker has made a safe product that will aid in healing. Unfortunately, pharmaceutical companies are sometimes more concerned with making money from their product, than its safety to the users. This can have devastating consequences on the victim, and can be grounds for a claim that holds the manufacturer responsible.

Should You Hire a Personal Injury Lawyer?
Having an attorney fighting for you increases your chances of winning the full amount you deserve. Why? Because assembling a winning case is not easy without legal knowledge and skills.
To win your claim you will need to know about torts, which are the laws that offer remedies to people harmed by another person’s careless or unreasonable actions. You will also need to review documents and other kinds of evidence that are often complex in nature. Medical conditions and related treatment will need to be chronicled and analyzed. Expert witnesses may need to be consulted. In some cases, accident scenes will need to be recreated. All of these are critical factors to building a case that wins.
Imagine trying to do this on your own, especially while struggling with the aftermath from your accident. It can be overwhelming. This is why many victims focus on healing and rely on an experienced personal injury attorney for their legal matters.
Picking the Best Personal Injury Attorney
There are many important factors to consider when selecting the right attorney to represent your case, such as:
Focus on Personal Injury Law: Attorneys cannot know about every kind of law governing our country and state, so they focus their expertise on a few legal areas. Personal injury law, or tort law, is the backbone of The Flood Law Firm’s practice.
Solid Case Record: When you are researching law firms, be sure to find out about their record of success. Firms who have solid experience in personal injury law will have won favorable settlements and verdicts for their clients.
Outstanding Reputation: An attorney’s strong reputation can set-up your case for success. An attorney, or the firm where they work, who has had positive dealings with insurance companies, opposing counsel, and the courts can benefit the outcome of your case.
