Personal injury cases typically center around the legal concept of negligence. Negligence in the legal sense occurs when a person or entity is obligated to act in a reasonable manner to keep others safe but, through action or lack of action, fails to do so and results in the injury of another.
This responsibility is referred to as a duty of care and it is considered a breach of duty when someone fails to meet it. An example of negligence is distracted driving. Drivers in Connecticut have a duty to reasonably prevent car accidents by driving prudently. Knowingly doing something dangerous, such as texting and driving, is negligence. If negligence causes an accident and someone else is injured, the negligent party will be liable for damages. This means the at-fault party will owe the victim financial compensation.
It isn’t always easy to obtain fair compensation after a serious injury. Nearly all personal injury claims pursue compensation through an insurance policy, but insurance companies are in business to maximize profits, not to pay out claims fairly. Dealing with your personal injury case alone, unrepresented, could put you at risk of being taken advantage of by an insurance company. Insurance companies are notorious for offering less money than a case is worth and denying claims without a valid reason. Once you accept a settlement – even a bad one – you can’t go back and ask for more money. Your case will be over. This is why it’s critical to work with an attorney on your personal injury case before you settle. An attorney will negotiate with the insurance claims adjuster aggressively to make sure you end up with fair and full compensation for a serious injury.
