Filing a Personal Injury Claim in Connecticut

How Our Nationally Recognized Personal Injury Attorneys Can Help

Connecticut personal injury laws are designed to protect victims of negligent and wrongful conduct, allowing them to seek financial compensation for damages arising from the accident or incident. Depending on the specifics of your situation, this might involve filing a claim with your own insurance provider or the insurance provider for the at-fault person or party. It might also involve bringing a lawsuit against a liable entity when a fair settlement cannot be reached.

Filing a personal injury claim can be a lengthy, complicated, and challenging process without the help of an experienced attorney. By putting an attorney on your side, you free yourself to focus on your physical and emotional recovery while your legal team fights for the financial compensation you need to heal.

At RisCassi & Davis, P.C., we have been successfully representing clients in all types of personal injury matters since 1955. Our firm is nationally recognized as one of the leading personal injury law firms in the area, and we have secured some of the largest injury settlements and verdicts in Connecticut history. Our team is ready to guide you through the process and help you fight for the full, fair recovery you are owed.

How To Tell If You Have Grounds For A Personal Injury Claim

While some accidents are truly unavoidable, most are entirely preventable. When another person, landowner, business, government entity, manufacturer, or some other party is negligent or acts outside of the law, resulting in injuries and damages, the affected individuals can take legal action.

In order to have grounds for a personal injury claim, you must be able to prove all of the following:

  • The other person/party owed you a duty of care
  • The other person/party breached the duty of care
  • You were injured because of the breach of the duty of care
  • You suffered measurable damages, whether economic or non-economic

For example, another driver on the road owes you a duty of care, meaning he or she has a responsibility to obey the law and take reasonable actions to avoid an accident. If the other driver breaches this duty of care, say by texting while driving, causing an accident that leaves you injured, you can file a personal injury claim and seek to recover compensation for your resulting medical bills, lost wages, disability, pain and suffering, etc.

It’s a good idea to work with an experienced personal injury lawyer in Connecticut who not only knows the law and how the process of filing a claim works but who can also take your case to trial if needed. In some cases, the insurance company refuses to settle or refuses to offer a fair settlement and your only option for recovering the full compensation you are owed is taking the case to court.
