What Types of Damages are You Eligible for?

Monetary damages that an individual may recover in a car accident personal injury suit can be broken down into three main types:

  • Economic Damages: these types of damages are real-world financial costs generated as a direct result of your car accident. For example, as a result of a car accident in Hamden, you may lose wages, incur medical bills, be required to pay for assistive services and have to replace or repair your vehicle. These can be covered by recovering economic damages in a suit.
  • Non-Economic Damages: non-economic damages are those caused by the accident but cannot be easily quantified fiscally. Non-economic damages include pain and suffering, loss of companionship, emotional distress, and more.
  • Punitive Damages: these damages punish the third-party responsible for the accident. A punitive damage award in Connecticut is limited to only covering attorney fees and litigation costs.

Fault or No-Fault in Connecticut? The Role of Modified Comparative Negligence

In addition to placing fault with the defendant, plaintiff culpability may be considered when calculating a plaintiff’s award for damages. Simply put, this means that a person’s level of carelessness will be considered when determining the amount of compensation due.

If you were determined to be 25 percent at fault for an accident, for example, you would be entitled to 75 percent of any damages you claim.

If the plaintiff in a Hamden personal injury case is found to be more than 51 percent at blame, then they will not be entitled to any compensation regardless of how much harm the defendant caused.

Statute of Limitations

For most personal injury cases in Connecticut, the statute of limitations is two years, starting from the date of the incident. However, there may be exceptions to this in some cases.
