A serious motor vehicle accident can result in severe injuries, emotional trauma, and substantial financial burdens. Navigating the complexities of insurance claims, liability disputes, and legal proceedings can be overwhelming for those also seeking medical treatment and rehabilitation. At Doyon & White, our experienced trial attorneys possess the courtroom expertise necessary to effectively represent you in your fight for the compensation you deserve following a serious motor vehicle collision caused by someone else’s negligence.

 

In 2020, a total of 35,766 fatal car accidents occurred on roadways across the United States. Another 1,593,390 crashes resulted in injuries and 3,621,681 caused property damage; a total of 5,250,837 collisions over the course of a single year. This is why you see so many personal injury firms spending big money on TV and billboards advertisements with statements of settling your claim fast and easy. In contrast, at Doyon & White, our attorneys are serious in our representation and selective in the matters we take on, limiting our representation to only those individuals who have been gravely injured.

Pedestrian Accidents

A 2022 preliminary data report from GHSA shows that vehicle caused pedestrian deaths have continued to rise annually, with a troubling 77% increase from 2021 to 2021 and more specifically 19% in just the last three years. The increase in cellphone usage and distracted driving of all kinds have been leading causes of these incidents as well as a lack of awareness and enforcement of laws. Most pedestrian accidents happen after dark and on roads without sidewalks.

At Doyon & White, we understand these nuances and the intricacies of Connecticut statutes and law pertaining to negligence and recklessness of drivers. This enables our staff to truly understand the nuances of your claim, the options for legal proceedings and bring a claim with the greatest leverage for damages on your behalf.

We believe our unique ability to connect with our clients and anticipate their needs makes us the advocate they need during these challenging times.

Bike Accidents

Too often motorists fail to consider the inherent risks motorcycle and bicycle operators face when interacting on the roadway and sharing the road is not always the first instinct. Injuries to motorcycle operators involved in a collision can be devastating and life altering. At Doyon & White, we recognize that every situation is unique and believe in the importance of individual and personalized client attention and communication. For this reason, we are selective in the cases we take on, choosing to represent those with severe injuries and in the greatest need for caring representation.

Bus Accidents

Bus accidents can result in serious injuries and emotional distress for victims and their families. These cases often involve multiple parties, such as bus companies, drivers, passengers, pedestrians, and other drivers. Navigating the legal intricacies and complexities of bus accident cases requires legal expertise as well as experience with these types of cases.

At Doyon & White, we are able to provide personalized attention to each and every one of our clients, allowing us to understand your unique situation, needs and priorities. We tailor our legal strategy to your specific case, ensuring the best possible outcome.

Our goal is to secure the compensation that you deserve to cover medical expenses, lost wages, and other damages resulting from the accident. Our team is fully available to answer any of your questions, keep you informed, and guide you throughout the process of your claim.

Boat Accidents

First and foremost, it’s essential to understand that boating accidents are not like car accidents. The open water presents a dynamic and unpredictable environment, making boating accidents more complex. Unlike roads, waterways lack strict lanes, signals, and traffic rules. Weather conditions, water currents, and the actions of inexperienced boaters can all contribute to accidents. Unlike car accidents that often leave behind clear physical evidence, boating accidents can result in submerged vessels and scattered debris, making it challenging to reconstruct what happened for a legal claim.

Boat accidents differ significantly from other injury claims due to the unique legal and practical challenges they present. These cases involve numerous factors, including maritime laws, regulations, liability determinations and the complexities of waterway navigation. Operating through this legal terrain requires a deep understanding of maritime law, and our experienced lawyers are able to provide just that.

If you or a loved one has sustained a debilitating injury as the result of a negligent boat operator, the team at Doyon & White is available to guide you forward in fighting for answers and the compensation that you and your family deserve. Our staff is here to listen to your concerns, answer any questions, and provide the support that is needed throughout your claim.
