How to File a West Haven Personal Injury Claim

Filing a personal injury lawsuit in West Haven is a relatively simple process. However, proving a civil defendant committed an act of negligence by a preponderance of the evidence — that is, 51% — can quickly become a difficult task due to the fierce defenses raised by insurance companies. A skilled West Haven personal injury lawyer can build a strong case on your behalf by:

  • Identifying the correct defendant
  • Gathering relevant evidence such as witnesses, photographs, and medical bills and records
  • Developing an aggressive case strategy
  • Retaining expert witnesses well in advance of trial
  • Anticipating and preparing for possible legal defense

Who Can File a Personal Injury Claim?

Normally, only an injured victim can file a personal injury claim in Connecticut. However, if the victim suffers a serious injury that prevents them from contributing emotional and financial support to their marriage, Connecticut law (Sec. 52-555b) then allows their spouse to pursue a loss of consortium claim. If a victim’s injuries were fatal, Connecticut law (Sec. 52.555) allows the victim’s estate to pursue a wrongful death case. 

Types Of Damages You May Recover From A Personal Injury Case

The financial compensation an injured victim can obtain is not random or arbitrary. Instead, the financial compensation is based on the injured victim’s damages — that is, losses. Pursuant to Connecticut law (Sec. 52-572h), a victim can seek two types of damages.

Economic Damages

Economic damages are the financial losses you have incurred as a result of your injury. Specifically, you can seek compensation for your past and future medical expenses. If your injuries prevented you from working, you can also claim for your past and future lost wages.

Non-Economic Damages

Unlike economic damages, a non-economic damages claim is not based on a specific financial loss. Instead, it is based on a victim’s intangible losses. Specifically, you can seek compensation for the physical pain and suffering you endured as a result of your accident and injuries.

Frequently Asked Questions in West Haven Personal Injury Cases

The time following an accident is often life-altering. Many personal injury victims have no idea how to navigate the complexities of the personal injury claims process while also dealing with their medical treatment. The attorneys and staff at the Carter Mario Law Firm always make themselves available to speak with their clients.

Is There a Time Limit to Filing a Personal Injury Case in West Haven?

Yes. Under Connecticut law (Sec. 52-584), a victim has two years to file a personal injury claim. As this two-year statute of limitations is strictly enforced, it is crucial for you to pursue your claim in a timely manner.

At the Carter Mario Law Firm, our lawyers understand the financial burdens you may be facing after an accident. Our attorneys work on a contingency fee basis which means you pay no upfront fees.
