Attorneys for Personal Injury Assisting Clients in Stamford, Norwalk, Bridgeport & Throughout Connecticut

Recovering compensation for victims of injury

Our personal injury practice group consists of attorneys dedicated to protecting the rights of clients who have suffered serious physical or psychological injuries due to the fault of others. For almost a century, we have fought hard to ensure that our clients receive fair and just compensation for their injuries and losses. Our personal injury track record is extensive and includes cases arising from automobile accidents, truck accidents, medical malpractice and slip and fall accidents, including accidents involving wrongful death and injuries to the brain and spinal cord.

Over the years, our lawyers have recovered millions of dollars in verdicts and settlements for the benefit of our clients. These verdicts and settlements compensate our clients for their medical bills, lost wages, pain and suffering, and loss of life’s enjoyment. Frequently, these damages are recovered before trial, as a result of a mediation, arbitration or settlement. When cases do not settle, we are fully prepared to try cases in state or federal court, and to advocate for our clients in the appellate courts of Connecticut and the United States.

Advocating on behalf of clients in a wide range of personal injury issues

Lawyers in our injury law firm meet frequently to discuss new developments in the law, to evaluate cases and to discuss issues arising in specific cases. In this way, clients benefit from the experience and knowledge of all the members of the group. Since we are selective about the cases we accept, we are able to dedicate the firm’s human and financial resources to each client.

Falls and dangerous premises:
Owners, property managers, corporations, partnerships and other legal entities that maintain and care for real property are required to take the steps to keep the properties in their control free from dangerous conditions. When they do not and their guests are injured, the individuals owning and controlling the property may be liable. Our firm has nearly 100 years of experience handling these claims, which include injuries from:

  • Wet floors
  • Food or liquids on the floor in grocery stores
  • Ice- and snow-covered walkways and driveways
  • Bad lighting in parking lots or in stairwells
  • Broken stairs, steps and sidewalks
  • Missing or broken locks or handrails
  • Merchandise falling from shelves
  • Dog bites
  • Failure to use proper security in parking lots and garages

We urge people injured on defective or dangerous property to contact an attorney immediately, as many of these claims can only be brought if proper notice is served on the responsible party very shortly after the accident. It can also be very helpful to take photographs of the defective property. If you have been injured by dangerous or defective property, please contact William Davoren or Stephen Finn to set up a free initial consultation.

Defective products

Dangerous products injure and kill thousands of people each year. Automobiles, contaminated foods, drugs, industrial machinery and even household appliances can cause devastating injuries or death. The manufacturers, distributors, engineers and designers in whom we place our trust often betray that trust. Every week, people are injured or killed as a result of unnecessary product defects.

The area of law that covers these types of cases, known as products liability law, applies when a product does not have adequate safety precautions or has a manufacturing defect, a design or development flaw, or an inadequate warning or label. In these cases, the seller, manufacturer and designer may be liable for the injuries and deaths caused by the product. If you were injured by a defective or dangerous product, you may be entitled to compensation for your medical bills, physical or psychological injuries, pain and suffering, and loss of enjoyment of your life. Aside from obtaining fair compensation for our clients, we hope that the actions we bring will persuade sellers, manufacturers and designers of defective products to remove the defective products from the marketplace and help prevent future avoidable injuries.

If you have been injured by a dangerous or defective product, it is important that you do not discard the product, as we may have to get it tested by experts in order to prove your case.

The personal injury lawyers at Wofsey, Rosen, Kweskin & Kuriansky, LLP are experienced at prosecuting defective products cases. If you or a family member has been injured by a defective product, please contact William Davoren or Stephen Finn to set up a free initial consultation.
