What Compensation Is Available in a Connecticut Personal Injury Claim?

In Connecticut, you may be able to receive compensation for economic and non-economic losses such as:

  • All medical expenses related to the accident
  • Lost wages incurred from time taken off work
  • Ongoing treatment costs
  • Property damage replacement or repair
  • Pain and suffering
  • Punitive damages, although only in rare cases

Unlike many other states, Connecticut does not have damage caps for compensation in any types of injury claims, whether for economic or non-economic damages. We will help you calculate the fair and just compensation you deserve so that you can pay off all your accident-related expenses now and into the future.

The Statute of Limitations on a Personal Injury Claim in Connecticut

Time is of the essence in seeking legal assistance after an injury occurs. In Connecticut, if you do not file suit within two years from the date of your accident, the "statute of limitations" will prevent you from pursuing a claim.

Deadlines and time constraints with insurance policies can also affect your right to receive the compensation you are hoping to obtain. Therefore, it is best to initiate your personal injury claim as soon after your accident as possible.

What To Do After Being Injured in an Accident

Since memories can fade, evidence disappears, and scenarios become distorted, there are specific steps that you should take immediately following an accident.

We encourage you to:

  • Take pictures of the accident scene from as many angles as possible. Photograph anything you think might be relevant to your claim, including what caused the accident and any bodily injuries you sustained.
  • Be sure to ask for the names, addresses, and telephone numbers of any witnesses.
  • Write down the time, location, and order of events.
  • Get copies of police reports and medical reports.
  • Refrain from speaking to prospective defendants, insurance company representatives, or the media.

However, it should be noted that the most important thing to take care of after an accident is your health. If you or someone else has been seriously injured, seek medical attention right away—you can always collect evidence later with the help of an attorney.
