Auto Accident

Auto Accident Case Study

At Silver Golub & Teitell LLP, our attorneys and knowledgeable staff thoroughly investigate the circumstance of each case, including interviewing witnesses and consulting with experts, before agreeing to represent someone seriously injured in an automobile accident. We only accept those cases where the fault is clear and individuals have suffered the most serious injuries.

In one notable case, Silver Golub & Teitell partners Richard A. Silver and Peter M. Dreyer reached a settlement of $11.8 million on behalf of Rene Villard, whose car was struck by a drunk driver who also tested positive for marijuana and was speeding at the time of the motor vehicle collision.  Please see the “Representative Cases and Results” section below or our Cases & Results page for some of our other auto accident cases.

We can confidently promise our clients that they will receive the full financial and legal resources of our firm in the prosecution of their case. We employ sophisticated trial techniques, including the use of focus groups and accident reconstruction experts, and we have an experienced physician on staff who is deeply involved in the investigation of our cases.  We also maintain a network of knowledgeable expert witnesses across the United States to assist us in the representation of our clients.

Our Auto Accident lawyers in Connecticut get results

Our lawyers help people who are seriously injured as a result of the following most common types of automobile accidents:

    • Driver error or negligence
    • Distractions to the driver of the vehicle
    • Product liability or auto manufacturing defect

In Connecticut, injured persons have up to two years to file a lawsuit and also have two years to file a suit for property damage, such as compensation for vehicle repairs. Failure to bring a lawsuit within this time frame will prevent any recovery regardless of the merits of the case.
