Auto Accident
After being injured in car accidents, the legal team at the Law Offices of Paul Levin knows just how difficult the aftermath that Connecticut residents may be left dealing with can be.
Car accidents are one of the leading causes of serious injury and death in the United States. Both because of the frequency with which most people use their automobiles and the potential for damage that the physics of automobile collisions creates, car accidents pose a threat to the health and safety of millions every day, especially when other people act recklessly. Injuries resulting from these accidents, whether they are as mild as whiplash or as serious as spinal injury, can pose substantial problems for car accident victims, including costly medical bills and lost income. Worse, car accidents resulting in wrongful death can leave families struggling to recover from their tragic loss.

From physical and emotional trauma to burdensome financial losses, car accidents often leave victims struggling. Fortunately, those who have been victimized by the negligent actions of others may be able to obtain compensation and justice for these burdens.

Common Causes of Car Accidents:
Car accidents can occur in a wide variety of different ways. However, some of the most common accidents and ways in which the negligence of other parties contributes to innocent people being injured in car accidents include:

Backover Car Accidents
Cell Phone Related Accidents
Chain Reaction Accidents
Dram Shop
Drunk Driving Accidents
Failure to Yield Accidents
Fatal Car Accidents
Head-on Collisions
Hit and Run Accidents
Manufacturer Defect Accidents
Uninsured Motorist Accidents

At the Law Offices of Paul Levin, we utilize the experience of accident reconstruction specialists to help determine exactly how the accident occurred and to help our clients recover the compensation they need.
Medical Malpractice
At the Law Offices of Paul Levin, we believe that all medical professionals who allow their patients to suffer injury unduly should be held accountable for their actions.
Medical malpractice is a legal term referring to harm done to patients by the actions or inaction of doctors and other medical professionals. The effects of medical malpractice on a patient's life can vary considerably, from relatively minor damages, such as prolonging the symptoms of an illness, to life-altering issues, such as internal organ damage or the amputation of a limb.

However, regardless of the extent to which a patient in Connecticut is affected by medical malpractice, at the Law Offices of Paul Levin, we believe that all medical professionals who allow their patients to suffer injury unduly should be held accountable for their actions. Fortunately, these victims are often able to file medical malpractice lawsuits that allow them to recover the costs of their damages and get back on their feet.

Common Types of Medical Malpractice:
Because there are many steps to the process of treating a patient, from diagnosing the patient to recovery, medical malpractice can occur in a large variety of ways. Some of the most common ways in which innocent patients are subjected to undue harm and suffering by negligent medical professionals, though, include:

Birth Injuries
Cancer Misdiagnosis
Delay in Diagnosis
Doctor / Personnel Abuse
Informed Consent
Injection Errors
Nursing Home Neglect and Abuse
Surgical Errors

These and other common forms of medical malpractice are not acceptable, and those medical professionals who are responsible for unduly harming patients in these manners should be held accountable for the ensuing repercussions.
Personal Injury
At the Law Offices of Paul Levin, attorney Paul Levin has extensive experience handling personal injury cases for clients who have suffered a range of injuries.
Accidents are a part of life, and a huge number of Americans suffer from preventable injuries every year. While many incidents result in simple bumps and bruises, it is not at all uncommon for dangerous or reckless behavior on the part of another individual or business to cause a serious injury which requires significant and expensive medical treatment along with other major complications.

Personal injury law concerns all manner of injuries which occur in such a manner, all of which are generally referred to as 'torts'. With the assistance of a skilled attorney, it is often possible to obtain compensation in a civil lawsuit from the party responsible for the injury by demonstrating that the defendant owed the victim a duty of care, breached that duty, and that breach resulted in injury.

Attorney Paul Levin has extensive experience handling personal injury cases for clients who have suffered a range of injuries, including cases involving the following:

Broken Bones and Scarring
Traumatic Brain Injuries
Spinal Cord Injuries
Dog Bites / Animal Attacks
Child Injuries

In addition to the immediate medical expenses associated with the treatment of such injuries, various other hidden costs can come along with an injury. Recovery time often means time spent away from work, and long-term complications can result in ongoing expenses far in excess of the victim’s immediately medical bills.
Workers Compensation
At the Law Offices of Paul Levin, we have experience handling a wide variety of workers’ comp claims in Connecticut, and we are ready to put our experience in this area of law to work for you.
All workers face at least some form of occupational hazard as a result of their employment, and workers' compensation plans are intended to help provide for workers if and when accidents do occur on the job. Generally speaking, in the state of Connecticut, workers' compensation claims can be filed for either accidental injuries, such as spinal or head injuries, that occurred while on the job or for occupational illnesses that a worker may have developed because of their work conditions.

Workers' compensation laws can be complex, however, and many workers may encounter difficulties in filing a claim on their own or in successfully resolving a dispute with their employer or their employer’s insurer about the validity of their claim.

Common Workers' Compensation Claims:
Workers' compensation claims can arise in a number of different contexts, and the types of injuries and illnesses involved can vary significantly. The following are some of the most common reasons for workers and their families to file workers' compensation claims:

Brain Injuries
Car Accidents
Construction Accidents
Exposure to Harmful Chemicals
Falls
Fractures
Illness Related to Job Stress
Machine Injuries
Paralysis
Violence in the Workplace
Wrongful Death

Additionally, it may be necessary for those pursuing a workers' compensation claim to simultaneously file other types of claims, including product liability and construction site accident claims. At the Law Offices of Paul Levin, we have the capacity to help those in these various positions with all of their legal needs.
Wrongful Death
At the Law Offices of Paul Levin, our Connecticut team understands the far-reaching effects that an unexpected passing can have on your family, and we want to help you as best we can at this difficult time.
Wrongful death is a devastating issue for any family to deal with. In addition to the pain and trauma that any loss of a loved one can cause, wrongful death can leave families struggling to cope with serious financial difficulties that may be caused by the unexpected loss of income support that the individual may have provided, as well as costly bills resulting from any medical treatment that may have been given and expenses for the funeral.

No family should have to cope with these costs along with the pain and suffering of their loss if the death of their loved one was caused by another person’s carelessness or wrongdoing.

Causes of Wrongful Death:
Wrongful death claims may arise in a number of different circumstances. The following are just a few of the types of wrongful death claims that our office has seen:

Backover Car Accidents
Chain Reaction Accidents
Construction Accidents
Drunk Driving and Dram Shop
Hit and Run
Medical Malpractice
Municipalities
Negligent Homicide

While taking legal action following the unexpected death of your loved one may be the furthest thing from your mind at this time, it is important that those responsible for your loved one's untimely passing are brought to justice. As such, let our compassionate team handle your legal concerns for you while you and your family focus on more important matters.
