As effective personal injury law specialists, we evaluate cases carefully, reviewing medical records and all other evidence such as accident reports and witness accounts. We have the ability to do our own investigations. When preparing a demand for compensation, we are thorough and persuasive.
If we cannot get fair value through negotiation, then that means proving your claim in court. As experienced trial lawyers, we are always prepared to take cases to court and try them to verdict. Going up against large or powerful defendants does not intimidate us. We know how defense teams work and how to counter their tactics with our own.
Every state has different personal injury laws and rules for bringing claims. In Connecticut, one of the most important to know is the statute of limitations. This is the strict time-frame limiting the amount of time you have to come forward with a personal injury lawsuit. You have just two years from the date the incident occurred to file a claim, with the exception of the discovery rule. If you did not discover your personal injuries until a date later than your accident, the two-year countdown begins on the date of discovery.
Another important set of laws to know is Connecticut’s fault laws. In a car accident claim, for example, Connecticut uses a traditional tort-based insurance system. You can bring a claim to compensation against the at-fault driver’s car insurance policy, but you must prove fault to recover damages. Connecticut is also a comparative negligence state. If the civil courts find you partially at fault for your injury, your comparative fault could reduce your compensatory award. Our attorneys can be on your side to help you prove fault and combat possible defenses.
A critical reason to file a personal injury lawsuit in Meriden, Connecticut is for financial compensation to make up for your losses.
