Waterbury Personal Injury Attorneys
The need for a personal injury claim can arise for a variety of reasons: surgical errors, severe reactions to prescription drugs, a dog bite or car accident. Yet they have one thing in common: the injury was caused by another person’s carelessness. When you’re injured due to someone else’s negligence, you have the right to seek compensation for any medical expenses, pain and suffering.
Filing a person injury lawsuit can help victims to go after the at-fault party responsible for their unnecessary pain and suffering. Having a personal injury attorney on your side can make all the difference in receiving the maximum compensation for your injury.
For many years, the attorneys at The Flood Law Firm have successfully represented injured victims throughout Connecticut. We can help secure the compensation you need to move forward on the road to recovery.
Types of Cases We Handle
The Flood Law Firm is proud to represent the injured in personal injury tort law. We can put our decades of tort law knowledge towards winning your case. Types of personal injury cases we handle include:
With 86% of Americans on our highways, you’re bound to be involved in at least one car crash in your lifetime. When another driver is responsible for your injuries, you have the right to seek justice for damages incurred.
We depend on prescription drugs to help us heal when we’re ill. Unfortunately, some medications can cause more harm than good. Pharmaceutical companies that put their profits over the well-being of consumers should be held accountable.
Pet owners are often defensive when their dog attacks someone. Biting cases can be exceedingly sensitive because oftentimes the victim and the dog owner have an established relationship.
We depend on healthcare professionals to provide a high level of care. When that trust is violated, the results can be catastrophic and deadly. Medication errors, surgical errors and failure to diagnosis are common medical malpractice suits.
Property owners are required by law to keep visitors safe on their premises. If you are injured when visiting a property, you are in your full rights to seek damages in a premise liability claim.
A traumatic brain injury occurs when blunt force trauma strikes the head, causing the brain to knock against the skull. They can range in intensity from minor concussion to physical penetration through the skull. TBIs frequently occur in car accidents and assault, and can be caused by the negligence or malice of others.

When to Talk to a Personal Injury Attorney
No matter the cause, a personal injury claim is going to involve multiple people from various institutions: hospitals, insurance adjusters, police officers, and of course, the at-fault party. Whether you or a loved one sustained the injury, a personal injury attorney can be your best ally through a difficult time. They can guide you through the claims process and assist with gathering all the evidence necessary to present a strong case that may secure the compensation you need to move forward with your life.
Say you suffer a traumatic brain injury as a result of a head-on collision. Having to gather all the necessary information to move forward with a claim might be nearly impossible, depending on the severity of the injury. You may be in immense pain and feeling foggy-headed due to medication. In this scenario, it would be all too easy to forget to include valuable information with your claim. An attorney focused on personal injury law will be able to alleviate your stress. They know the law, and will be able to respond swiftly and thoroughly throughout the personal injury claim process.
Selecting the Best Personal Injury Attorney
With so many options for legal representation throughout the country, how do you choose the right one? There are several factors that one should consider when choosing to hire an attorney:
Area of Practice – the laws governing our nation and individual states are so vast, there’s no way one person can be an expert in all of them. For this reason, attorneys focus on specific practice areas to develop their expertise. You’ll want to choose a lawyer whose practice area matches your needs. For example, a person getting a divorce would be better suited with an attorney whose practice area is family law, rather than a maritime injury attorney.
Reputation – an attorney who is well-respected by the other professional in a personal injury case – including insurance agents, opposing counsel and court house officials – will be in a better position to leverage a positive outcome for your case. Client testimonials can help you gauge an attorney’s bedside manner, to see if their litigation style or temperament suits yours.
Case Record – a law firm with a good reputation and substantial experience in tort law will have a record of winning settlements and verdicts for their clients.
