Serious Personal Injury and Wrongful Death Claims
To recover the compensation necessary to meet the past and future losses attributable to negligence in a severe or fatal accident case, your attorneys must achieve three objectives: (1) establish the liability of one or more defendants, (2) prove the extent of your damages through admissible evidence, and (3) identify a source of compensation (usually an insurance company) legally obligated and capable of paying the damages you're owed.
Our Fairfield and Stamford personal injury lawyers have the experience, skill and resources necessary to protect your interests with respect to each of these three challenges. In serious injury cases involving complex facts and legal theories of liability or damages, it is usually necessary to prove claims through expert testimony. In medical malpractice litigation, the support of a medical expert is necessary before the lawsuit can even be initiated.
At Tooher Wocl & Leydon, LLC, our clients benefit from our law firm's experience with the proof and recovery of disputed claims on complex facts related to liability, damages or insurance coverage issues. Examples of the kinds of cases we handle include:
- Medical malpractice in surgery, emergency medicine and medication prescription
- Diagnosis errors in cases of cancer or other medical conditions
- Birth injuries resulting from negligence during delivery or prenatal care
- Nursing home negligence or abuse
- Motor vehicle accidents
- Products liability claims
- Premises liability (slip and fall or trip and fall) claims

- Brain and spinal cord injury claims
