All crashes require a detail-driven investigation to determine what happened and why.
Connecticut’s Comparative Negligence Doctrine
Several states in the U.S. have laws where bar compensation if you are even 1% responsible for the collision. Thankfully in Connecticut we have the comparative negligence doctrine. This means that it’s possible for you to recover damages even if you are partially at fault. This doctrine just requires you to prove the other driver is equally or more at fault for the accident.
This law is one of the reasons most drivers choose to get legal representation to help document the conditions of the collision and fight for rightful compensation.
