Experienced Representation for Connecticut Injury Victims

When you hire the personal injury lawyers at Beck & Eldergill, you can be confident in our ability to build the strongest possible case through investigation, expert witness testimony and legal expertise.

We handle a wide range of personal injury and wrongful death lawsuits resulting from incidents such as:

  • Motor vehicle accidents, including car accidents, motorcycle accidents and commercial trucking accidents
  • Boating accidents
  • Pedestrian and bicycle accidents
  • Construction site accidents
  • Dog bites and animal attacks
  • Slip, trips and falls (slippery floors, icy sidewalks, etc.)

Even when a motor vehicle accident or premises liability incident is not fatal, the injuries may be catastrophic, leading to lifelong problems for the injured person and that person’s family. Whatever the injury, we fight to help each client obtain compensation they need to cover medical bills, lost wages, pain and suffering, rehabilitation and other expenses.

Recent Developments in Dog Bite Injury Law

Under a recent Connecticut Supreme Court decision, a cat or dog no longer has “one free bite.” Now, if an animal has a history or propensity to engage in aggressive behavior, owners may be held liable for the first bite. For dog bite victims, this means you may be entitled to recover financial damages even if the dog has never bitten previously.

Premises liability

  • Another property owner’s negligence or recklessness can cause you or your loved one serious harm. The experienced attorneys at Beck & Eldergill handle all types of premises liability claims, including
    • Slip and fall accidents
    • Defective stairs
    • Improper supervision of employees
    • Inadequate lighting
    • Inadequate security
  • Injuries due to a property owner’s negligence can occur on all sorts of properties, including residences, restaurants, or grocery stores.
  • Property owners are required to keep their property in a reasonably safe condition. If a dangerous condition is known, or the property owner should have known of the dangerous condition, yet the owner fails to fix the condition, they may be responsible for any injuries that result from that dangerous condition. One of the most common types of dangerous conditions is a spill that a property owner fails to clean up; however, there are many types of defects that a property owner may be responsible for if you become injured. If you have been injured due to a condition on someone else’s property, call us today for a consultation.
