Cases Black Rock, Bridgeport, CT Injury Attorneys Handle

Personal injury cases encompass a broad spectrum of scenarios, each presenting unique challenges and legal implications. Sadly, many injury-causing accidents are entirely preventable. If you have been hurt by someone else’s negligence or misconduct, a personal injury lawyer can be your greatest ally. But how do you know if your accident qualifies as a personal injury case? 

The following are common types of cases that personal injury attorneys handle.

Dog bites

Bridgeport is known for its love of pets, with many pet-friendly establishments, dog parks, and dog-friendly events. It’s a place many pet owners and their furry companions are happy to call home. However, with love for animals comes the responsibility of pet ownership. Unfortunately, not all interactions with pets or their owners are positive.

It has been reported that approximately 4.5 million dog bites occur each year in the United States, with children being the most common victims. 

The results of a dog bite may include:

  • Physical injuries: Dog bites can result in a range of injuries, from minor cuts and bruises to more severe wounds requiring stitches, reconstructive surgery, or even permanent scarring.
  • Emotional trauma: Being bitten by a dog can lead to emotional trauma, including anxiety, post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD), and a fear of dogs or animals in general.
  • Extensive financial costs: Medical treatment for dog bites can be costly, including emergency room visits, surgeries, and ongoing rehabilitative care. Additionally, victims may face lost wages if they are unable to work during their recovery.

Connecticut operates under strict liability laws for dog bites. This means that the owner is responsible for any injuries caused by his or her dog, regardless of the dog’s previous behavior. That fact makes it easier for victims to get the help they need after being hurt by a dog.

Construction accidents

Bridgeport, Connecticut, has long been a thriving center for construction and trades. This bustling industry not only contributes to the economic vitality of Bridgeport but also provides numerous job opportunities for skilled laborers and tradespeople. 

Sadly, the construction industry, while vital, is also fraught with risks. Construction accidents are unfortunately common and can lead to horrific injuries or even fatalities.

Some of the most common causes of construction injuries are:

  • Falls
  • Being struck by objects
  • Electrocutions
  • Being caught in or between equipment

In a report by the Centers for Disease Control (CDC) on construction-worker fatalities, 366 deaths were attributed to falls within one year alone. Another report by the US Bureau of Labor Statistics states that in 2020, “Workers in construction and extraction occupations experienced 21,400 nonfatal workplace injuries and illnesses due to falls, slips, and trips.” 

These accidents not only result in physical harm, such as traumatic brain injuries, but can also cause significant emotional and psychological trauma, including anxiety, depression, and post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD).

Injured construction workers deserve justice and financial restitution. Bridgeport, CT, personal injury lawyers can help such victims understand their rights and seek the maximum settlement possible.

Car accidents

Car accidents can be traumatic and life-altering events, impacting those directly involved – and their families and communities. 

Victims may suffer from injuries such as:

  • Whiplash
  • Broken bones
  • Traumatic brain injuries (TBIs) 
  • Spinal cord injuries
  • Head injuries
  • Anxiety
  • Crush injuries
  • Post-traumatic stress disorder
  • Organ damage and more

Beyond the physical injuries, the emotional and financial toll can be immense. Personal injury lawyers work to ensure hurt victims receive compensation for medical bills, lost wages, pain and suffering, and other damages after a car collision.

  • Lost wages: Compensation for time missed from work and any reduction in your ability to earn in the future
  • Pain and suffering: Financial redress for the physical pain and emotional distress caused by your injury
  • Property damage: Reimbursement for repairs or replacement of damaged property
  • Loss of consortium: Compensation for the negative impact on your relationship with your spouse or family due to the injury

  • I am writing to let you know what an outstanding job George Gridelli did for me in my personal injury lawsuit. His professionalism and expertise were evident at our first metting and he and his paralegal Diane D'Andrea took care of me as if I was a friend and not merely a client. They both went above and beyond for me in so many ways that it would be too numerous to list and I am grateful to have had such an exemplary team represent me. When working with George and watching him in court he personified to me what a lawyer is supposed to be - an honest, extremely compentent man who helped guide me through the legal system. I could not have obtained better representation anywhere else at any price. To me that says a lot abut you and your firm's integrity. Thank you again for representing me and for having such stellar individuals working for you! I will continue to recommend your firm.

    Mrs Steward

  • I am writing this letter to say how much I appreciate your services pertaining to my case. Your injury attorney took a hands-on approach and left me fully informed at all times as to where my case was going as well as how much ground we had to cover; leaving the final decisions in my hands but making sure that I knew all of the risks involved in the choices. I have dealt with a few law firms in my life on various different cases and this is the first time that I never had to call and/or track down my lawyer… because of this, I have and will continue to recommend Cellino Law to my friends and associates.

  • Cellino Law and more specifically my attorney, Gregory V. Pajak, Managing Attorney, and as a whole the Cellino Law Firm and its organization. This is by far one of the most professional law firms and attorney I have ever engaged with and retained in my 35 years. The level of professionalism goes beyond words, the care and constant engagement with me as the client was touching. I was never ever just treated as simply a CASE with potentially a significant dollar number attached to my file. I was engaged regularly, Tracey (Ass’t) and Greg always made sure to remain constant, as well as consistent in overseeing that my case was handled properly and that it did matter in many ways - ensuring that the end result(s) would be fair and reasonable to my case/injury. The regular follow-up calls were very satisfying, knowing that you’re involved in your case matters significantly AND always. One of my main items to recognize Cellino Law and Gregory is that whenever I called, I was able to get through to speak directly to my Lawyer and he would answer any if not all of my questions in a very professional and genuinely caring manner. I always felt cared for and protected legally and more importantly, I was made feel as a human being that was being cared for and always keeping me abreast of all matters connected to the case. There was never a point I felt let down, on the contrary -the level of service was “STELLAR”. Greg is the consummate professional, a ‘role model’, if you will, for what other attorneys should strive to become when dealing with their clients.
