Negligence plays a crucial role in personal injury cases and often isn’t intentional. It typically occurs when someone fails to reasonably foresee the potential for injury, leading to accidents and harm.

At L.A. LAW, LLC, our experienced personal injury attorneys are here to help you understand how negligence impacts your case. We work diligently to ensure that those responsible are held accountable, and you receive the compensation you deserve for your injuries.

WHAT IS PERSONAL INJURY?

If this is your first experience with a personal injury case, you might be unsure about what qualifies as a personal injury or how a personal injury lawsuit works. At L.A. LAW, LLC, we are here to guide you through every step of the process, ensuring you understand your rights and options.

Personal Injury Defined

Personal injury refers to physical harm caused by someone else’s careless actions or negligence. However, it often encompasses more than just physical or emotional injuries. Personal injury claims can cover medical expenses, lost wages, transportation costs, and other related expenses. In some cases, it may also involve property damage, though this is usually handled in a separate lawsuit.

Personal Injury Law in Connecticut

Navigating personal injury law in Connecticut can be complex, but that’s why we’re here to help. Each state has its own set of personal injury laws, and Connecticut is no exception. Connecticut’s personal injury laws are guided by a combination of statutes and case law.

Most relevant laws can be found in the Connecticut General Statutes, covering areas such as vehicle accidents, property liability, and civil procedures. These statutes play a crucial role in determining the outcomes of personal injury cases. Understanding the nuances of these laws is essential for effectively pursuing a personal injury claim in Connecticut.

 At L.A. LAW, LLC, our experienced personal injury attorneys are well-versed in Connecticut’s legal landscape. We’re here to guide you through the intricacies of your case, ensuring you receive the compensation you deserve.

Understanding Fault and Negligence in Personal Injury Cases

It’s important to understand that negligence doesn’t require intentional harm. Often, prospective clients believe that someone must have caused harm intentionally for it to be considered negligence. However, negligence can occur through careless or reckless actions that lead to injury or damage. At L.A. LAW, LLC, our experienced attorneys are here to help you navigate the complexities of negligence and ensure those responsible are held accountable. What does Liability mean in an injury case3

Negligence

"Who is at fault?"

… a common question among our clients. At L.A. LAW, LLC, determining who is legally responsible for your damages is a cruicial part of our job. In Connecticut, negligence is defined as the violation of a legal duty owed by one person to another. This means that someone can be held liable for your injuries even if they did not intend to cause harm.

Understanding Liability in Connecticut

Personal Injury Law

Navigating personal injury law in Connecticut can be complex, but that’s why we’re here to help. Each state has its own set of personal injury laws, and Connecticut is no exception. Connecticut’s personal injury laws are guided by a combination of statutes and case law. At L.A. LAW, LLC, our experienced attorneys, licensed in Connecticut and New York, are dedicated to identifying all responsible parties to maximize your compensation.

LIABILITY

"Are you responsible?”

In Connecticut personal injury law, liability refers to the party responsible for your injuries. Determining liability is a crucial step in seeking compensation for damages. Liability can arise from various situations, including car accidents, property hazards, medical malpractice, and more. Sometimes, the person who was negligent isn’t the one responsible for paying damages.

Our team will meticulously investigate your case, ensuring every potential liable party is held accountable for their actions. If you’ve been injured, trust L.A. LAW, LLC to fight for the compensation you deserve by uncovering all sources of liability.

What Caused Your Injury? Understanding Causation in Personal Injury Cases

At L.A. LAW, LLC, we want you to understand how causation works and why it matters. Causation refers to the link between the actions or negligence of one or more parties and the injuries you sustained. During a trial, it is typically up to a jury to legally decide who caused your injury. They examine the evidence presented and determine if one or more parties are responsible for your damages.

WHAT CAUSED In YOUR INJURY?

In personal injury cases, the legal concept of causation is crucial in determining who is responsible for your injuries.

In some cases, the jury may find that multiple people or events contributed to the injury. This is known as “concurrent causation.” Understanding the complexities of causation is essential for building a strong case and ensuring that all responsible parties are held accountable.

At L.A. LAW, LLC, our experienced attorneys will guide you through this process, presenting a compelling case to demonstrate who is legally responsible for your injuries. We are dedicated to securing the compensation you deserve by thoroughly investigating and clearly establishing causation.

Parties Involved in a Personal Injury Case

  • Plaintiffs: These are the individuals who have been injured due to the actions or negligence of others. Plaintiffs are the ones pursuing a case in court to seek compensation for their injuries.
  • Defendants: These are the people, companies, or organizations that are allegedly responsible for causing the plaintiffs’ injuries.

It’s important to note that there can be multiple plaintiffs and defendants in a single case. This means that more than one person might be seeking compensation, and more than one party could be held accountable for the injuries sustained. Understanding the roles of the parties involved is crucial for navigating a personal injury case. At L.A. LAW, our experienced attorneys are here to help you through this process, ensuring that all responsible parties are identified and held accountable for their actions

Step 08

PROOF IN A CT PERSONAL INJURY CASE

How Much Proof Do You Need?

In Connecticut personal injury cases, you must provide sufficient facts and evidence to prove your case by a preponderance of the evidence. This means your proof must show that it is more likely than not that the defendant is responsible for your injuries.

Preponderance of the Evidence

Unlike criminal trials, which require proof beyond a reasonable doubt, personal injury cases in Connecticut use the standard of proof known as “preponderance of the evidence.” This lower threshold means that your evidence must outweigh the defense’s evidence in terms of credibility and likelihood.

Multiple Causes of Action

If your case involves multiple causes of action, each must be presented separately with its own supporting evidence. The defendant is required to respond to each cause of action and cannot ignore the evidence presented.

Speculation and Proof

While some level of speculation is expected, your proof must be concrete and substantial enough to establish the defendant’s liability. Our experienced attorneys at L.A. LAW, LLC will help you gather and present the necessary evidence to meet this standard and build a strong case.

Evidence in Connecticut Personal Injury Cases

Direct, conclusive evidence isn’t always needed to build a strong case. In many instances, circumstantial evidence can be sufficient to successfully argue a personal injury case.

For example, circumstantial evidence can be enough to prove a car was speeding. Skid marks, scattered debris, and eyewitness testimony can demonstrate a high rate of speed even without police radar proof. At L.A. LAW, LLC, our experienced attorneys know how to effectively gather and present both direct and circumstantial evidence to support your case. We ensure that all relevant evidence is meticulously analyzed and strategically used to establish liability and secure the compensation you deserve.
