How to File a Personal Injury Lawsuit in Connecticut
Before filing a lawsuit, the personal injury attorneys at Carter Mario conduct a detailed investigation of the facts surrounding your accident. This is crucial because the time following an accident is when evidence is fresh and available.
Following our investigation, our personal injury lawyers prepare and send a demand package consisting of your medical records and the evidence we collected to the negligent person’s insurance carrier. We do this to negotiate a favorable settlement with the insurance company. If we cannot negotiate a settlement you approve, we will file a lawsuit on your behalf.
Who Is Eligible To Make A Personal Injury Claim
It is longstanding law that only a person who has “standing,” i.e., suffered legally recognized harm, can file a personal injury claim and lawsuit in Connecticut. Accordingly, only a victim can make a personal injury claim. If a victim suffers fatal injuries and passes away, their estate can file a wrongful death claim.
Damages You May Recover from a Personal Injury Case
Connecticut State law allows you to claim economic and non-economic damages for the losses you suffered due to the injuries sustained from an accident. Specifically, you can claim economic damages for the financial losses you suffered, including:
- Ambulance bills
- Hospital bills
- Surgical expenses
- Physical therapy bills
- Occupational therapy bills
- Medical equipment/devices
- Modifications to a home/vehicle
- Future medical expenses
- Past and future lost wages
With regard to your non-economic damages, you can seek financial compensation for the physical pain and mental suffering you experienced from the accident and your injuries.
