Trial law firm based in New Haven Connecticut seeks justice for individuals and families who have suffered life-altering personal injury and loss.
Personal injury is an area of trial law that receives a tremendous amount of attention when huge settlements are awarded. But winning such cases is seldom a “slam dunk.”
The specifics of catastrophic personal injury cases can be daunting. Says Joel Faxon, “Personal injury is an area of law. It’s designed to protect those harmed by the negligence, recklessness, or malpractice of others. Personal injury encompasses a full range of legal claims – wrongful death, auto accidents, birth trauma related to defective drugs or product liability, or even aviation disasters. The crucial element in such cases is that the loss suffered by the victim is irretrievable. What they’ve lost can never be regained.”
It may sometimes seem like small consolation, but a trial law firm such as Stratton Faxon helps victims of catastrophic loss, including their families, recover financial compensation for medical costs, loss of income, pain and suffering, emotional distress, and other injuries which were incurred during the catastrophic trauma. Adds Faxon, “We’ll work extremely hard to prove the adverse party in your case truly bears legal responsibility for your injury and that the damages claimed reflect the full extent of the injury or loss.”
All personal injury claims are subject to a statute of limitations, although the time limits involved may vary based on your claim. It’s important to note, however, that personal injury is a broad, evolving area of law. Says Faxon, “Your individual claim’s specific circumstances determine a great deal about what kind of a case you have. If you think that you might have such a claim, you should contact our office as soon as possible.”
Stratton Faxon frequently handles personal injury cases that fall under the following su-categories: sexual abuse, slip and fall, toxic mold, car and truck accidents, wrongful death, construction accidents, injuries suffered at work, medical malpractice, motorcycle accidents, nursing home abuse, premise liability, product recall, playground accidents, birth injury, and aviation disasters. But some accidental injury, especially among children, is preventable.
