Wrongful Death

Any unexpected death is tragic, but when a person is killed in a car accident caused by another's negligence or recklessness, the effect on the victim's surviving family members can be horrific. At Ivey, Barnum & O'Mara, LLC, we understand the pain of losing a loved one to a preventable car accident. We realize that no amount of money can replace your loved one, but we also know that you and your family need to move forward.

Catastrophic Injuries

In most cases, a victim who is injured in a car accident is eventually able to return to work and resume the life they enjoyed before the accident. Sometimes, however, the victim's injuries are so severe that things can never go back to normal. At Ivey, Barnum & O'Mara, LLC, we handle car crash cases involving catastrophic injuries such as severed or amputated limbs, severe brain injuries, and paralysis. If you or a loved one has suffered a catastrophic injury, we will work to get you compensation for long-term care, modifications to your home, and much more.


Truck Accidents

Commercial trucks measure up to 70 feet long and can weigh as much as 40 tons when fully loaded. When a large truck is involved in an accident with a car, it is occupants of the smaller vehicle who are most often injured. At our firm, we work on behalf of truck accident victims to get them full compensation for their injuries. We are not afraid to take on trucking companies and their insurers in pursuit of justice for our clients.



In 2013 my husband was killed and daughter critically injured when a drunk driver hit them head-on. It was a very difficult time for us but Mr. Kelly was without a doubt, extremely professional and caring at the same time. If I could give John Kelly more than 5 stars review, I absolutely would.

by Martina Calvelli


My 8 year old son was killed in a totally preventable accident and we came to him for help. Mr. Kelly was caring and compassionate and gave us support to make it through the legal process. I would highly recommend him, and hope never to have to use his services for a wrongful death case again.

by Sharon Grishkin Wu


Extremely pleased with not only the quick way my case was handled, but the professionalism and kindness of my attorney, John Kelly. He was very smart, worked quickly and efficiently and was very concerned about my wellbeing after my bad car accident. I highly recommend him and his firm.

Frequently Asked Questions


Will the Other Driver's Insurance Cover My Injuries?

Auto insurance is intended to help injured victims recover their losses related to medical expenses, lost wages, and other considerations after a car accident. Unfortunately, auto insurance policies are often not enough. In addition, it is not uncommon for an accident victim to discover that the other driver did not have insurance. Speak with a knowledgeable car accident lawyer at Ivey, Barnum & O'Mara, LLC about your legal options.


I Was Partially at Fault for the Car Accident. Can I Still Collect Compensation?

If you share some responsibility for the accident, you may still be able to seek compensation through a personal injury lawsuit. Both Connecticut and New York operate under a modified version of the comparative negligence doctrine. This means that as long as the other party was more at fault than you were, you can still pursue damages. However, the amount you are able to collect will be reduced by your percentage of fault.


How Much Is My Car Accident Case Worth?

The amount of compensation available after a car accident depends on many factors. In general, you may be entitled to collect damages for your measurable losses, such as medical bills, lost wages, and property damage. You could also be eligible for non-economic damages such as emotional distress, pain and suffering, and diminished quality of life. An experienced car accident lawyer can help you determine how much you might be able to collect.


Why Do I Need a Lawyer?

When you have been injured in a car accident, you will have many things to worry about, such as making a full recovery, having your car repaired, and getting back to work. It is easy to assume that the insurance companies will take care of everything, but insurers are not usually acting in your best interests. They are protecting their bottom line. When you work with a skilled car accident lawyer from Ivey, Barnum & O'Mara, LLC, you will have an advocate on your side who will protect your rights while you focus on getting your life back on track.
