We Maximize the Amount of Compensation Our Clients Receive

Connecticut law allows car accident victims to seek financial compensation for economic and non-economic losses. We strive to get the most compensation available under the circumstances by fully documenting an accident as well as your injuries.

Economic damages should cover your financial losses, including the cost of medical care, lost income/lost wages, diminished earning capacity, and property damage. For most of these expenses, you should have a receipt or bill showing how much you have lost.

Non-economic damages compensate clients for all losses which are non-financial in nature, such as physical or emotional pain or suffering, inconvenience, disfigurement, and disability. Although harder to calculate, we put our experience to work for you to request a fair amount.

Negligence & Car Accident Lawsuits

Most car accident injury cases are based on negligence. A defendant who owes you a duty of care must pay compensation when their conduct falls below an acceptable level and you are injured in the process. Think of a driver who is looking at a phone while behind the wheel of a truck or other negligence causing a car accident. If a person is physically close to you, they undoubtedly owe you a duty to act carefully. Any recklessness or carelessness on their part makes them liable for your injuries.

We also analyze our client’s own negligence. Connecticut recognizes comparative fault. Under this rule, you cannot receive any compensation if you are more at fault than the defendant. In other words, you must be 50% or less to blame to maintain a lawsuit. However, even if your fault is less than 50%, your compensation is reduced by your degree of fault. So someone who is 40% to blame will take home 40% less.
