Sometimes people sustain injuries that are caused by something simple and are not the fault of any person or entity. Examples of these kinds of injuries are those caused by aging, heredity, or accidents where no outside party is liable, such as you tripping and falling down your own stairs. In the event that you are injured because of the negligence, recklessness, or maliciousness of another person, you could very well be entitled to bring a claim of personal injury against them for all of your accident-related damages.
The initial question that you need to ask prior to deciding to file a lawsuit for your injury is whether or not you have a legitimate legal claim. There are several kinds of events that Connecticut law sees as justifiable legal actions against the person or entity who is responsible for your injury. These types of injury accidents include but are not limited to:
- Car accidents in which another driver was reckless or negligent
- Slip and fall injuries when a premises liability issue is present
- Medical malpractice when the actions of a healthcare provider are careless or negligent
- Faulty products
- Assault and battery
- Dog bites or animal attacks
Establishing Your Case
In the majority of instances, claims of personal injury are resolved before they ever see the inside of a courtroom. If your case is not resolved, however, and you are required to submit your claim in front of a jury or judge, you will have to prove the other party’s negligence with solid, reliable evidence. This evidence is crucial to your claim because it often means the difference between getting the financial compensation you need to cover the damages related to your injury and receiving nothing at all.
Some kinds of evidence you can show in court to confirm your version of events include but are not limited to:
- An official police report
- An incident report filled out by the company
- Witness testimony and written statements
- Pictures of the accident scene and any visible injuries
- Medical records
- Proof of missing work
- Professional eyewitness testimony
