Answering Your Personal Injury Questions
Our team is incredibly knowledgeable when it comes to injuries, accidents and the law. You might feel overwhelmed with information right now, but we can provide clear, direct answers to help you understand things better. In this segment, you can read a few of our responses to our clients’ frequently asked questions.
Will I have to go to court?
We manage to settle most cases without ever going to trial. During the negotiation process, you may need to attend a court hearing – but we will be there to represent you. In the rare case that the insurance company does not make a fair offer, then yes, we may need to take your case to trial.
What is my case worth?
There is no simple way to answer this without a detailed consultation. Some of the damages we often help clients recover include:
- Medical bills
- Lost wages
- Loss of earning potential
- Physical rehabilitation
- Vocational rehabilitation
- Pain and suffering
We can give you a more accurate idea of the value of your case when you meet with us.
What is comparative negligence?
Comparative negligence means that you can still receive compensation if you share fault for an injury. However, your financial settlement or award may be reduced proportionate to your share of the fault. For example, let’s say that you were 20% at fault for a car accident and the other driver was 80% at fault. This means that you could recover up to 80% of the value of your damages.
Is there a statute of limitations?
Connecticut has a two-year statute of limitations for personal injury claims. You must file your lawsuit within two years of the date that you suffered your injury. If you do not, you lose the right to seek compensation for your damages through a civil claim.
