If you have been injured as a result of someone else’s negligence, you need an experienced lawyer with trial experience to fight for you against powerful insurance companies.  Personal injury claims include such claims as car accidents, slip and falls, premises liability, motorcycle and boating accidents, dog bites, wrongful death, construction accidents, and catastrophic injuries.  Attorney Santoro is a New London Waterford accident lawyer who has been representing injury victims against insurance companies for almost 20 years.  If your injuries have you bedridden, attorney Santoro offers convenient in-home consultations. 



If you have been injured at work and are finding it difficult to receive the benefits you deserve, we can help.  These benefits include medical treatment, weekly benefits when your doctor has you out of work or if you are light duty, prescription costs, mileage reimbursement, and Permanent Partial Disability (PPD) benefits when you are done treating.  PPD benefits represent the loss of use you have suffered for your injured body part/s.  Workers’ Compensation claims fall under a different set of laws than personal injury cases, which is why not all personal injury lawyers handle workers’ compensation claims.  In Fact, many well-known personal injury firms refer workers’ compensation cases to attorney Santoro.  Attorney Santoro handles not only workers’ compensation claims under state law but claims at both Foxwoods and Mohegan Sun Casinos.  He is one of only around 50 Board Certified Workers’ Compensation Specialists in the entire State of Connecticut, and one of only a few in New London County. 



One of attorney Santoro’s philosophies is to keep it simple by only practicing in two areas of law – personal injury and workers’ compensation.  By limiting his practice to these areas, attorney Santoro has been able to develop a knowledge and skillset to more effectively and zealously represent his clients.  He has tried personal injury cases in front of juries and became a Board Certified Workers’ Compensation Specialist through the Connecticut Bar Association in 2012.  His other philosophy is to give personalized attention to each client.  Attorney Santoro is a solo practitioner and will handle your case from the beginning to the end.  You will not be passed off to a paralegal or associate.  We pride ourselves on excellent communication with our clients, whether by in-person meetings, emails, or phone calls.  Good communication is the key to a successful attorney-client relationship. 



If you search “accident lawyers near me” and find attorney Santoro, you are finding someone truly local.  Attorney Santoro was raised in the Groton area and is a graduate of Fitch High School and the University of Connecticut.  He is also a graduate of the Western Michigan University Cooley Law School.  Attorney Santoro has been licensed to practice law in the State of Connecticut and United States District Court, District of Connecticut, since 2001.  He is a member of the Connecticut Bar Association, as well as the Connecticut Bar Association’s Workers’ Compensation Executive Committee, the Connecticut Trial Lawyers Association, and New London County Bar Association.  Attorney Santoro acts as an Arbitrator for the Connecticut Superior Court in New London.  He has devoted his entire legal career to helping accident and injury victims. 


To become a Board Certified Workers’ Compensation Specialist, attorneys must devote a significant amount of their practice to workers’ compensation, pass a comprehensive one-day exam, and earn a certain amount of Continuing Legal Education credits in workers’ compensation law and ethics on an annual basis.
