It only takes an instant for another party’s negligence to cause irreparable harm, whether in a car accident, slip and fall, or medical error. If you are a victim, you do not have to navigate the painful aftermath on your own.

The team of attorneys at D’Amico & Pettinicchi LLC stands ready to navigate the claims process and secure compensation for pain and suffering, lost wages, medical expenses and more. Their ultimate goal is to secure the resources their clients can use to rebuild their lives.

“We understand that each case represents someone’s future, where quality of life is just as important as financial well-being,” said Mike A. D’Amico, a founding partner of the firm and a dedicated trial lawyer in Connecticut for more than 35 years.

Since opening its doors in 1990, D’Amico & Pettinicchi has focused exclusively on representing plaintiffs in personal injury, medical malpractice and wrongful death cases.

The firm’s approach begins with no-cost, no-obligation consultations with potential clients where they will gain a full understanding of their legal options. A knowledgeable attorney, meanwhile, listens to each client’s unique circumstances.

“We cannot undo what happened to someone, but we can handle what happens next,” said founding partner Thomas P. Pettinicchi. “Securing justice and making things right for those who have been wronged is our passion.”

Indeed, when attorneys at D’Amico & Pettinicchi take on a case, they go all in, leaving no stone unturned as they gather the evidence needed to win. Because of their reputation for fierce advocacy, the firm’s attorneys are often able to negotiate settlements out of court.

But if a case heads to trial, the firm’s attorneys are well-prepared. Their Watertown office features an in-house courtroom, facilitating meticulous trial preparation in a realistic environment. In addition to boasting the latest technology, the venue allows the firm to test its legal strategies in front of real people selected to act as jurors.

“That is just one of the ways we get successful results for our clients,” Pettinicchi said.

Those results include many million- and multimillion-dollar verdicts and settlements, including a $23 million gross verdict for a 12-year-old boy who sustained a permanent brain injury in a school bus crash; $6.7 million for a 35-year-old woman, and her husband, who was seriously injured when a tractor trailer struck her car; and $5.3 million for a 38-year-old man injured in a head-on collision.

In addition to its legal work, D’Amico & Pettinicchi supports numerous charitable causes in Watertown and beyond. The firm offers annual scholarships to undergraduate and law-school students and donates to organizations such as the Arthritis Foundation, Bikers for the Cure and the St. Vincent DePaul Mission of Waterbury.

The firm’s attorneys, meanwhile, share their expertise through scholarly articles on a range of subjects, from product liability litigation to claims against nursing homes.

The extracurricular activities reflect the mission that has animated D’Amico & Pettinicchi for more than three decades: In the face of life-altering events, the firm aims to stand as a pillar of support, committed to ensuring justice and healing for those who have been wronged.
