Cases We Handle
We handle a wide variety of personal injury cases. Our firm will conduct an independent investigation into your accident to determine the actual cause and identify all potentially liable parties. Once we have secured the necessary evidence and developed your case, Jonathan Perkins Injury Lawyers can begin negotiating with the responsible party or their insurance company to try and achieve a fair and full settlement. When an insurer or other negligent party refuses to provide adequate compensation, our firm can file a lawsuit to try your case in court. Unlike many personal injury firms, we are experienced in court and unafraid to take your case to trial.
At our firm, we only focus on personal injury law and provide comprehensive legal solutions for injury victims throughout Connecticut. Some of the practice areas that we cater to include (but are not limited to):
- Car Accidents
- Defective Drug Injuries
- Bicycle Accidents
- Dog Bites
- Employment Law
- Medical Malpractice
- Motorcycle Accidents
- Truck Accidents
- Wrongful Death

Every personal injury case is different. People may suffer many serious injuries, including fractures, sprains, and strains, as well as catastrophic injuries such as spinal cord injuries, traumatic brain injuries (TBIs), or paralysis.Victims in these types of cases often face lengthy initial terms of hospitalization followed by several weeks, months, or even years of rehabilitation. Additionally, many people who are injured by another party’s negligence are unable to return to work, and some individuals are permanently incapable of being able to maintain gainful employment.
Jonathan Perkins Injury Lawyers can help you recover financial compensation for all of these injuries and complications. Through negotiations or trial, we can help you win money to cover your medical expenses, lost wages, lost earning capacity, pain and suffering, property damage, disability and disfigurement, and other damages.
Tragically, some victims are killed as a result of the accidents they are involved in. If you have lost a loved one due to someone else’s negligence, you may be able to pursue a wrongful death claim to recover financial compensation for final expenses and loss of support, among other damages.
Jonathan Perkins Injury Lawyers understands the complications that victims face following accidents, which is why our firm works to do what we can to help make your life easier. Our firm is committed to helping you get justice.
