Are Car Accidents Considered a Personal Injury?
Car accidents can be considered a personal injury case. Since car accidents can cause harm due to the actions of others, the person who caused the harm can be held accountable through a personal injury claim. People usually seek financial compensation to pay for bills, medical expenses, and other expenses that have been incurred due to the accident. When filing a personal injury case, make sure that you’re within the statute of limitations of two years. If you come forward after the two years, your case will most likely be dismissed, so file your claim as soon as possible.
Building an Effective Case
After an accident, one of the first calls you could receive will be a settlement offer from the other party’s insurance carrier. For most cases, the other party in the lawsuit will be the legal representatives of the insurance company, and they are used to fighting against people just like you. It is important that you not only stand strong in support of your interests, but that you also hold firm to the amounts you need to get better.
In order to obtain the best possible outcome for your case, you will need to:
- Document the extent of your injuries
- Prove that the other party was at fault for those injuries
- Show that they failed to uphold their responsibilities
- Explain how that failure led to your injuries
- Avoid being blamed in any way for the accident
Because Connecticut has comparative and contributory negligence laws, it is important that you not allow the insurance companies to convince you that this was also your fault. The Law Offices of Michael T. Barrett can help you build a strong case that maintains your innocence in the accident.
