Automotive Related Accidents

Disregarding Stop Lights

Stop Signs

One of the most frequent types of accidents which we see in our practice is caused by motor vehicle operators who fail to observe or obey traffic control signals. In many instances, individuals operating vehicles who try to "beat" a red light cause significant injury to the occupiers of other vehicles lawfully on the highway. If you have been injured as a result of someoneís failure to properly observe a red traffic control signal or other control signal, contact us because we have significant experience with these types of claims and we can help.

Trucks are everywhere. All of us who work and recreate in the northeast corridor realize that trucks are an integral and important part of our commerce.

RODIE & CONNOLLY has been involved in claims in which trucks and trucking companies have failed to maintain the braking systems of their vehicles and in which their operators have been negligent in the operation of their vehicles.

Negligent Driving, Uninsured Driver

Uninsured Drivers

Automobile liability insurance is mandatory in the State of Connecticut, yet we see many accidents involving uninsured drivers who not only operate their vehicle negligently but also fail to maintain the insurance coverage required by law. We have been surprised that many individuals injured by uninsured or hit and run operators do not realize that their insurance covers them if they are injured in the event of such an occurrence. If you have been injured by someone who has evaded the scene or does not have insurance call us and we will explain to you how we can help you to protect your rights.

Negligent Driving Due to Cell Phone Use

Cell Phone Negligence

Cell phones and cars donís mix. We have litigated cases in which operators have been distracted by using their cell phones and caused injury to our clients. Many times this fact is not discovered until a lawsuit is instituted and depositions are taken.

Our legislature has recently made it illegal to use a cell phone while operating a motor vehicle. Our experience is that despite the potential for "hands free" cell phone use in the future, these cases are ones which must be vigorously pursued in order to discover whether an operatorís use of a cell phone was a substantial factor in an accident. If you have been injured as a result of the negligent operation of a motor vehicle because someone was using a cell phone, call us. We can help.

Injuries Acquired While Shopping at the Supermarket

Supermarket Injuries

Most supermarkets maintain "sweep logs". They are for the purpose of recording the frequency of the inspection of supermarket floors to insure that merchandise which has spilled or fallen does not cause a tripping hazard or slipping hazard for individuals shopping on the premises. We have had many experiences with slips and falls, sweep logs and supermarkets. If you have been injured as a result of the improper packaging of materials, produce, a spill, a wet floor, contact us.

Malpractice

Medical Malpractice

Medical Malpractice

At RODIE & CONNOLLY, P.C. we have tremendous respect for the medical profession. Day in and day out, physicians take steps to diagnose, treat and care for patients. All of us, at some point, are touched by and cared for by the medical profession. However, we also know that there are times when health care providers, whether surgeons, oral surgeons, radiologists or primary care physicians, make mistakes. Those mistakes can be costly. Connecticutís legal system requires that before any law firm commences an action for medical malpractice a health care provider of similar stature to the defendant must provide an opinion that a deviation from the normal and relevant standard of care occurred and that the deviation caused an injury.

This good faith certification required by Connecticut law insures that cases which are brought to trial have merit.

Understandably, doctors and their insurance companies have many experts available to them to support them and to defend them when an action is brought. These cases are vigorously defended . RODIE & CONNOLLY, P.C. has been involved in many medical malpractice cases. We have offered to our clients our candid evaluation of whether a case exists and whether it is warranted. If you believe that you have been injured as a result of medical malpractice, contact us. We can help.

Hospitals are important resources in all of our communities. Employees who work there are compassionate, knowledgeable members of health care teams who at all times attempt to perform their jobs in a professional and capable fashion. However, our experience has shown that there are times when individuals are injured as a result of the failure of hospitals to adhere to the relevant standards of care. These patientsí injuries can be severe; life threatening and can even cause death. If you, or someone you care about has been injured as the result of the negligence of a hospital and you believe that you may need some assistance in sorting out where responsibility lies in connection with that injury, contact us.
