Suffering through a personal injury is something that many people will unfortunately have to endure at some point in their lives. However, it is unfair to expect injured individuals to bear the burden of an injury if they were not responsible for the incident. In fact, the law in Connecticut allows people injured due to the actions of others to seek compensation for any loss that results from the incident.Read More
Any time someone causes an injury to someone else as a direct result of their own action or inaction, they carry legal liability to reimburse the harmed party for their losses. However, proving fault in an injury case can be a complicated matter.
It is not enough to claim that another party was at the scene and therefore they caused an injury. Instead, a plaintiff must select a legal cause of action and present a theory that places blame on a defendant.
Perhaps the most commonly used of these theories is negligence, which usually applies whenever an injury results from an accident. The defendant in such a case did not mean to cause harm to the injured person, but nevertheless, harm resulted from their reckless behavior.Our Referral Process
Whether it involves an intentional attack or an accident, every personal injury case must center around a physical harm. While this harm does not need to be life-threatening, it must require medical attention to qualify as such for these purposes. Plaintiffs typically demonstrate their injuries during trials or settlement talks by presenting relevant medical records and bills.
While a physical injury must be present to pursue a claim, the costs associated with treating these injuries are not the only compensable losses. For example, an incident may also leave a plaintiff unable to work to earn a living. Whether this involves a temporary injury while a person recovers or a permanent loss of work ability, a personal injury lawyer in Glastonbury could work to hold a defendant liable to provide compensation for this lost income.
