Personal Injury

Your Connecticut Personal Injury Attorney

Tynan & Iannone has handled a variety and number of claims pertaining to motor vehicle accidents, premises liability pertaining to slip & falls, injuries resulting from dog bites, and various other matters where clients have been injured by the negligence or recklessness of others. If you have been injured, you should act quickly to protect your rights and preserve potential evidence.

– Motor Vehicle Accidents

In the event you are injured by an uninsured driver or by someone who had insurance that is inadequate to fully compensate you for your injuries, you may be entitled to file a claim against your auto insurance company for uninsured/underinsured motorist coverage. A thorough review of all insurance policies that apply is undertaken, proper notice must be provided to various parties, and the creation of a record to fully identify your losses must be made. Obtaining prompt medical treatment and a continued plan of care should be one’s primary objective.

– Defective Premises

This category includes injuries caused by defective premises such as snow and ice on roads and/or walkways, foreign substance on the floors of retail stores, structural defects on staircases, inadequate lighting and any other conditions due to dangerous and preventable conditions. If you are injured due to a condition on property that may be defective or unsafe, you should report the accident to the owner, store manager or police to ensure there is proper notification and documentation of the incident. You should also seek medical attention if you are injured to establish the extent of the injuries you have sustained. You should take pictures to document what the site looked like when your accident occurred. Finally, you should also take notes to identify the date and time of day of the incident, the name and contact information of witnesses, and the nature of the defective or unsafe condition. Your notes may prove to be extremely helpful at a later point in time.

– Injuries from Dog Bites

Immediate medical treatment must be obtained relative to any type of injury sustained by a dog (or any other pet/animal).  Identifying the owner of the animal and the specifics as to the nature and cause of the incident, as with any personal injury matter, is essential.
