How to File a Personal Injury Claim in Waterbury, CT

Filing a personal injury claim in Waterbury is a relatively simple process and involves placing the negligent party’s insurance carrier on notice of the accident and your injuries. However, the time following an accident or injury is fraught with a flurry of activity, stress, and confusion. Insurance companies take advantage of this confusion and often deny otherwise valid claims. While you may know you are entitled to compensation, the other person’s insurance company is betting you will not consult a Waterbury personal injury attorney.

At Carter Mario, our Waterbury-based personal injury attorneys investigate the facts of your case and collect important evidence such as photos, witness statements, police reports, and your medical records. We then prepare a demand package for the negligent person’s insurance carrier in which we describe your injuries and the legal claims we will pursue to obtain compensation on your behalf. Our attorneys then attempt to negotiate a settlement on your behalf.

Who Can File a Claim?

Normally, only a personal injury victim is entitled to file a claim. However, if an accident causes a victim to suffer fatal injuries, a victim’s family may be able to file a wrongful death claim if a family member is named as the executor or administrator of the victim’s estate. If an accident victim suffers injuries which then affects their ability to contribute to their marriage, the victim’s spouse can file a claim against the negligent party under a loss of consortium claim.

What Damages You May Recover in a Waterbury Personal Injury Case

Severe injury or hardship resulting from an accident, negligence, or another’s misconduct can seriously impact your mental and physical health, relationships, ability to work or work performance, and much more. These financial and non-financial difficulties are called “damages.”

Based on the nature of your incident, Connecticut State law allows you to claim damages for the following: 

  • Past and future medical expenses
  • Ambulance and emergency room fees
  • Prescription medication
  • Medical equipment/devices
  • Rehabilitation therapy
  • Past and future lost wages
  • In-home care costs
  • Home/vehicle modifications
  • Pain and suffering
  • Anxiety, depression, PTSD, etc.
  • Counseling services

FAqs About Waterbury Personal Injury Claims

No one expects to be injured in an accident. As such, it is natural to have questions regarding the personal injury claims process. The experienced personal injury attorneys at Carter Mario provide free and confidential consultations for injured victims and their families.

How Long Do I Have to File a Personal Injury Claim in Waterbury?

You have two years from the date of your accident to file a personal injury lawsuit in Waterbury. This is because Connecticut’s statute of limitations for personal injury claims is two years. If you fail to file a lawsuit before the statute of limitations runs out, you lose your right to assert your claim in court.

How Much Does a Waterbury Personal Injury Attorney Cost?

At Carter Mario, our attorneys are hired on a contingency fee basis. This means our clients pay no upfront legal fees or expenses. Instead, our Waterbury attorneys are entitled to a portion of any settlement or judgment we recover for our clients. Stated simply, we do not get paid unless you get paid.
