PERSONAL INJURY FAQ

Can I be found partially at fault for an accident?

Connecticut follows what is called a “modified” comparative negligence rule. What this means is that if plaintiff is more than 50 percent responsible for an accident, he can recover nothing. So a plaintiff will not be eligible to recover, say, 20 percent of his damages under this type of comparative negligence.

See Connecticut General Statutes Sec. 52-572h. Negligence actions. Doctrines applicable. Liability of multiple tortfeasors for damages.

What is ‘medical payments’ (MIP) coverage mean?
Medical payments coverage is part of an auto insurance policy. It may help pay your or your passengers’ medical expenses if you’re injured in a car accident, regardless of who caused the accident. This coverage is optional and not available in all states.
Should I speak with the negligent party’s insurance company adjuster?
If you plan on obtaining your own attorney and pursuing a personal injury claim, the answer is No. The insurance adjuster represents the negligent party, not you, and will be recording your statements whether you were advised of same or not.
Do I need to hire an attorney to represent me?
Although you are not obligated to do so, it is always advisable that injured claimants retain an attorney to represent their interests.
