What damages am I entitled to recover?
This all depends upon what type of case you have and the injuries you have suffered. If you require medical care, past and future medical treatment is recoverable. Past and future lost wages may also be recovered. In addition are "general damages," including pain and suffering, loss of enjoyment of life, emotional distress, and the inconvenience associated with a personal injury.
How long do I have to file a lawsuit?
The allotted time given to injured parties to file a lawsuit is known as the statute of limitation. If the statute of limitations expires before you attempt to file, the court will not hear your case. In the state of Connecticut, you have two years to file a claim from the day you experienced the injury. The short timeframe makes it imperative that you contact a personal injury attorney right away if you have suffered harm.
What should I do if I've been involved in an automobile accident?
First of all, you should get medical treatment if you need it. Secondly, you should open a claim with your auto insurance carrier and the other driver's insurance carrier. If and when the other driver's insurance company calls and asks for a statement, don't give them one. If you have been injured, seek out an attorney from The Rotatori Law Firm to represent you before giving such a statement.
I fell down slippery steps and injured my back, what should I do?
If you were injured due to the dangerous conditions of someone else's property it may be possible to file a claim to get compensation for your injuries. Property owners are responsible for warning others of dangerous conditions on their property. As with any personal injury case, you will need a professional and experienced attorney to represent you and seek damages for your case.
