Personal Injury in Connecticut

Personal injuries can have many different effects on people. Many experience pain every day. Some are unable to return to work. Others cannot participate in activities that they used to do. Personal injuries can include broken bones, sprains, strains, neck and back injuries, traumatic brain injuries, paralysis, and even death.

If you suffered a personal injury, you may be entitled to compensation from the person who caused that injury. How is the best way to know? Speak with Hartford personal injury attorney Vincent DeAngelo.

When can a personal injury occur?

A personal injury action is usually based on someone else’s negligence or intentional act. A personal injury can occur in these circumstances:

What is negligence?

More often than not, personal injury is caused by another person’s negligence. But what exactly is negligence? Under the law, four things must be established for negligence to exist:

  • Duty. Each person has a duty to act in a certain way, whether it is driving a car or maintaining a property.
  • Breach. There is a breach when that person fails to act in accordance with his or her duty.
  • Injury. Negligence does not exist just because a person breached his or her duty. There must be some sort of injury.
  • Causation. The breach of the duty must have caused the injury.

You are injured. Now what?

It can be overwhelming if you have been injured in an accident. In addition to the pain and inconvenience of an injury, there are forms and questions from the insurance company and medical bills from the hospital, doctors and other healthcare providers. It may be time to ask for help.
