LOCAL INJURY LAW FIRM NAMED TO CONNECTICUT’S TOP 10 SETTLEMENT LIST

JONATHAN PERKINS INJURY LAWYERS RECOGNIZED BY TopVerdict FOR $2.1 MILLION AWARD

Jonathan Perkins Injury Lawyers has been named to the list of the Top 10 Settlements in Connecticut in 2017 by TopVerdict. The legal website recently presented the law firm with the prestigious distinction.

Attorney Perkins and his firm fought for a 34-year-old Brazilian woman who was paralyzed in a bicycle accident on a city street, resulting in the Town of Fairfield agreeing to a $2.1 million settlement with the family.

The incident occurred in September 2015 near Lake Mohegan in Fairfield. Rubia Rodrigues was travelling down a hill on a bike near the lake entrance, when her front tire got trapped in a road grate. This caused her to fly over her handlebars and land directly on her head in the street. Rodrigues suffered a traumatic brain injury. She can no longer speak or walk and she will be paralyzed for the rest of her life.

Rodrigues spent six months at St. Vincent’s Medical Center following the incident before she was flown back to Brazil by her family, who could no longer afford her treatment here.

“It is an honor to be recognized for our efforts in seeking justice for Ms. Rodrigues and her family,” said Attorney Jonathan Perkins, founder of Jonathan Perkins Injury Lawyers. “This recognition only amplifies our commitment to continue fighting for our clients and help amend any personal damages.”

Attorney Perkins worked tirelessly for the victim after determining the bars in the road grate were 6 inches apart, which did not meet the recommendation made by the Connecticut Department of Transportation that all municipalities replace these grates with bars only 4 inches apart.

“Many municipalities have been slow to replace these grates,” said Attorney Perkins. “With this financial settlement the family will now have the funds to provide the care their daughter requires.”

The $2.1 million settlement was reached during jury selection in the state Superior Court. Rodrigues v. Town of Fairfield now stands as one of the most lucrative cases in recent years, due to the diligence of Jonathan Perkins Injury Lawyers. The factors cited in the case included Bicycle Accident, Dangerous Condition, Personal Injury, Brain Injury, and Negligent Maintenance.

A New Lawyer in Your Corner

– JONATHAN PERKINS INJURY LAWYERS HOSTS GRAND OPENING OF NEW LONDON LOCATION ON NOV. 1ST –

(NEW LONDON, CT) – October 19, 2018– Jonathan Perkins Injury Lawyers, one of Connecticut’s top accident and injury law firms, has successfully protected the interests of clients across the state for more than 30 years. Now the respected practice is expanding to lend its legal expertise with the opening of its fifth location in New London County.

“Our team takes great pride in providing attentive service while aggressively fighting for the maximum compensation amount that our clients may be entitled to,” said company founder, Jonathan Perkins, Esq. “We look forward to helping people in another corner of the state.”

Jonathan Perkins Injury Lawyers has become the gold standard for personal injury representation by recovering hundreds of millions of dollars in damages for their thousands of clients. The firm has offices in Bridgeport, Hartford, New Haven and Waterbury.

The public and members of the medical community are invited to join the grand opening celebration on Thursday, November 1 from 5 to 7 pm. Attendees can tour the new office at 164 Hempstead Street, meet the team, and learn about the practice’s many services. The official ribbon cutting ceremony will take place at 5:30 pm in partnership with the Chamber of Commerce Eastern Connecticut, as well as local business and political leaders. Hors d’oeuvres, drinks, and dessert will be served.

“Knowing what to do after sustaining a personal injury that was caused by another person or business can be daunting, but it doesn’t have to be,” explained Perkins. “Our stellar team has the knowledge and resources to handle injury litigation so that people can concentrate on the most important thing – getting healthy and ‘back to normal’.”

Perkins explains that since most clients have never suffered a personal injury before and don’t know what to expect or how to manage their claim, the firm has created a unique case management system. A dedicated team regularly reminds clients to visit their doctors and keep records of all treatments, prescriptions, therapy sessions, and more. They go above and beyond the average attorney. For example, if clients do not have transportation to the hospital or doctor visit, they will arrange transportation to ensure that clients receive the care they need.

If a person or loved one has been wrongfully injured in an auto or motorcycle accident, through medical malpractice, a slip or fall, dog bite, nursing home abuse, lead poisoning, or a defective product, the compassionate and caring firm provides:

  • Free initial consultation
  • Flexible appointment schedule
  • Home visits for clients without transportation
  • Personal service through the Perkins’ case management system

Best of all, the first case evaluation is totally FREE and the firm operates under a contingency basis, which means that they do not get paid unless the client receives a settlement. They make sure clients are regularly contacted, informed, and reassured throughout the entire litigation process.

“Our injury lawyers are committed to honesty, persistence, responsiveness, and personal attention,” said Perkins. “Our goal is to achieve the financial results that you deserve. When it is time to resolve your case—whether in court or at the negotiation table—having the Power of Perkins on your side means the best outcome possible.”
