Auto/Car Accidents

Helping Injured People Recover Financially After a Serious Car Accident

If you are a Connecticut resident seriously injured in a car, truck or pedestrian accident caused by negligent or reckless actions of another, it's vital that you contact an experienced personal injury attorney to ensure your legal rights are protected.

A good attorney will begin immediately to review the facts of your accident and prepare a case for court, including investigating the scene of the accident, interviewing witnesses, and gathering evidence. Skid marks fade and evidence disappears quickly. The more time that goes by, the harder it will be to gather the facts. The more serious the accident, the more important it is to contact an attorney immediately.

Insurance companies are quick to try to settle auto accident claims before you’ve spoken to a lawyer, but settling your claim before speaking with counsel may leave you without enough compensation to pay for your injuries and damages.  Our attorneys are experienced in ensuring that clients receive fair, just, and reasonable compensation for their injuries in a timely manner.

Get sound legal advice from a law firm with decades of personal injury experience. Contact the law offices of Grady & Riley, LLP. We can help you recover payment for medical bills, lost wages, the repair or loss of your vehicle, and pain and suffering.

Effective, Aggressive Legal Help for Accident Cases

The Waterbury and Woodbury auto accident attorneys at the law firm of Grady & Riley, LLP, have more than 45 years of experience bringing personal injury lawsuits to court for auto, motorcycle, trucking, pedestrian and bus accidents.

We handle many auto accident injury cases involving uninsured or underinsured drivers.  Many people may not be aware that “hit and run” or “phantom car” accidents are frequently covered by their own Uninsured/Underinsured Motorist coverage. We will follow all possible avenues of financial recovery for our clients, including uninsured and underinsured motorist coverage to which they may be entitled. We also bring lawsuits in civil court to gain money and personal property from the driver who caused the accident, if there are no sources of insurance money to cover damages.

We aggressively pursue punitive and treble civil damage claims when someone’s reckless behavior has caused our clients to be injured.  If your injuries were caused by reckless driving like DWI/DUI, racing, and driving while texting or using a cell phone you may be entitled to recover double or triple damages under Connecticut’s Double or Treble damages statute – CGS § 14-295  and have helped many clients receive financial support, including the passengers in drunk driving accidents. 

Bus and Truck Accidents

Many serious and fatal interstate bus and trucking accidents in Connecticut occur along I-84, and where I-84 merges with Route 8—the "Mixmaster." High speeds and traffic congestion, along with bus and truck driver error, driver fatigue, illegal lane crossings, or inattentiveness, lead to injuries and wrongful deaths on Connecticut freeways.

If you or a loved one was injured in a semi tractor-trailer or bus accident, you need immediate legal review of your potential claim. The commercial trucking industry is heavily regulated by both state and federal laws. The personal injury lawyers at Grady & Riley, LLP, understand those laws and have handled hundreds of similar cases.

The law offices of Grady & Riley, LLP operate on a contingency fee basis. It will cost you nothing to see a personal injury attorney for a review of your case and if you are accepted as a client, you will not owe attorney’s fees, unless you receive compensation for your injuries.
