We are Attorneys Jay Ruane, Teresa DiNardi and Stephen Lebedevitch. We have been practicing law for a combined 25 years. We are not another pair of lawyers hoping to make easy money handling personal injury cases. We are not a bottom line kind of law firm. We created Mr. CarAccident® because we saw a desperate need for lawyers like us in Connecticut. We opened Mr. Car Accident® because we saw flaws in the average civil legal representation in Connecticut.

How We’re Different

It is true that most lawyers want to put their clients first and get the best outcome for them. But, they are not organized or tech-savvy enough to do so. At Mr. Car Accident, we do things differently. We don’t just make empty promises to our clients – we practice what we preach.

We Can Help You

The first thing that sets us apart is that we are a paperless office. This allows us to keep our paperwork secure and organized in the cloud. This means you never have to worry about documentation or important information getting lost. We pass along the savings that being paper-free gives us to our clients.

Secondly, our firm is truly about putting the client first. That is why we have created this website with free information. Most lawyers will charge you an arm and a leg for these resources. But, we want to provide people in your position with this information for free. Please use this website and our book as resources to help you with your case.

Finally, we offer lower prices than most of the other personal injury lawyers in the state. Personal injury lawyers generally offer a contingency fee for their services. This type of payment is only paid to the lawyer if they recover compensation for their client. While this is a good thing, most lawyers charge a 33.33% contingency fee. At Mr. Car Accident®, we feel that this is too much. We ran the numbers.  We don’t believe in ego advertising that drives up our costs.  No billboards, no radio ads, no TV. We charge a 25% contingency fee. This means that when you hire us, you get to keep – on average – 8.33% more than you would with another lawyer.
