Serious West Hartford Personal Injury Representation for Serious Injuries
Accidents can happen anywhere, even in a small town like West Hartford. Our community has experienced car accidents on Interstate 84 and premises liability accidents at fast food joints like Chick-fil-A or educational institutions like the University of St. Joseph. Whenever someone has injured you in an accident, we can help. Our legal team specializes in seeking full compensation for our West Hartford personal injury clients.
Broad Personal Injury Experience
Personal injury cases typically involve accidents where a person suffers a bodily injury because of any of the following:
- Car accidents
- Bicycle accidents
- Pedestrian accidents
- Truck accidents
- Dog attacks
- Premises liability accidents
- Violent attacks caused by negligent security
- Slip and fall or trip and fall accidents
- Fires or electrocution
In most of these cases, someone was not being as careful as they should have been, and our client gets hurt as a result. For example, a driver could be distracted or intoxicated and crash into a victim. Or a property owner could fail to keep the premises safe, leading to a fall or other injury.
Compensation for Personal Injury CasesAccidents leave our clients in considerable pain and often unable to return to work. They suffer considerable financial loss, as well as non-financial losses like depression, anxiety, or social withdrawal. When done right, a personal injury should compensate our client for these losses. Damages for Economic Loss Accidents cost our clients money out of their own pocket. These economic losses include medical care, rehabilitation, property damage, and lost income or wages. If you can assign a dollar amount to what you have lost, then these losses are considered “economic” in nature. Damages for Non-Economic Loss Connecticut law goes even further and allows injured victims to receive money to “make up” for certain non-financial losses, such as physical pain, emotional distress, suffering, inconvenience, disfigurement or scarring, or disability. These types of intangible losses are harder to calculate in financial terms than lost wages. Still, our clients can often receive damages for them. Limitations on Damages Your compensation could be reduced by several factors. One is your own fault. Connecticut lets accident victims receive compensation so long as they are not more than 50% to blame for the wreck. But if they contributed in any way, their compensation is reduced by their percentage of fault. So if you are 40% at fault, you will receive 40% less in compensation than you otherwise would. Another limitation is the insurance or assets the defendant has. Someone with no income or assets will be unable to pay compensation—even if they are responsible for your injuries. Even a defendant with insurance might not have a policy that can cover all your losses. Our lawyer strives to find all available sources of money for his clients.
