There is a two-year statute of limitations for most personal injury cases in Connecticut, so it is important to contact a lawyer promptly after your injury to preserve evidence and witness contacts. Our firm handles both complex and simple injury cases, including those involving:
Our goal is to settle cases out of court, but we won’t hesitate to take your case to trial if the opposing party fails to offer a satisfactory compensation agreement during negotiations.
Car accidents can cause significant and lasting damage to the people involved. Receiving economic and noneconomic damages to pay for ambulance and medical bills, physical therapy costs, auto repair expenses, lost income, and pain and suffering can be a great help to people as they seek to recover from the accident and move on with their lives.
Connecticut is an at-fault auto insurance state and uses a system of modified comparative negligence to determine the damages a plaintiff can receive. As long as you were not 51 percent or more at fault for your accident, you can seek compensation from the insurance company of the other driver.
Demonstrating fault is crucial for auto accident cases. Our lawyers examine all of the applicable evidence, including police reports and witness accounts, to provide a clear depiction of each individual’s liability.
