Connecticut Personal Injury Legal Advocacy
The legal team at Eagan & Donohue has handled numerous wrongful death matters. We have represented many individuals injured in automobile and motorcycle accidents; as the result of a fall, from a dog bite, and those otherwise injured as the result of someone’s negligence. Representative injuries include scarring, knee, back, neck, collarbone, bone and joint, eye, orthopedic, spinal cord, brain, head and other injuries. Our team has handled catastrophic and life-altering injuries, as well as soft tissue injuries resulting from low-impact accidents.
Prior to and after filing a lawsuit, the Eagan & Donohue team thoroughly investigates the personal injury claims: they obtain information such as relevant context about culpable parties, the list of all injuries, and, ultimately, case value. Our staff also meets to discuss the merits of the case with the client. All of the information that we have uncovered is then used to determine the fair value of a matter. We also analyze the facts of other similar cases to identify trends and issues resulting in favorable and unfavorable verdicts. Our research allows us either to present a case to the jury from a position of strength or to engage in serious pre-trial settlement discussions. Eagan & Donohue is equipped to handle cases in both state and federal court.
Eagan & Donohue often attempts to obtain fair value for a case prior to filing a lawsuit. A settlement may occur just months after an initial consultation or could take a number or years. If appropriate, we recommend and participate in early Alternative Dispute Resolution (ADR) such as mediation and/or arbitration, to facilitate settlement. If a choice is made not to settle, we will file suit and prepare for a jury trial to obtain the best possible result for our clients.
Our team also investigates the various insurance policies covering individuals. If the person responsible for the accident does not have adequate insurance, an injured party may be able to collect under their own insurance policy, the policy of a relative they reside with, or even insurance from both divorced parents living apart from one another. These claims result from contractual obligations in the company’s Under Insured Motorists/Uninsured Motorists (UIM) provisions in the policy.
As a general practice law firm, Eagan & Donohue is equipped to handle a wide range of personal injury cases such as those involving:
