If your body was injured or your property was injured, then you have suffered a personal injury. However, not all injuries are someone else's fault. It is not always necessary to have a physical injury to bring a personal injury lawsuit. In the case of an assault, for example, you do not need to show that a person's action caused you actual physical harm, but only that you expected some harm to come to you. Some of the most common types of personal injury cases involve car accidents, or individuals who have fallen. Less common personal injury cases involve lead paint, negligent security, and medical malpractice.
In most situations you have two years from the date of the injury to file a suit. However, this rule does not apply in every case and only an experienced attorney can help you determine if you can still make your claim. Worker's compensation claims are limited even further, to one year from the date of injury. Again, an experienced attorney can help analyze your worker's compensation claim and determine if a longer time period may be applicable.
We specialize in handling personal injury claims, automobile accidents, worker's compensation, slip and fall accidents, animal bites and more. Headquartered in Middletown, Connecticut, Robbins Law, LLC is centrally located to serve the entire state of Connecticut.
The first thing to do after an accident is to check on your own health status and the status of anyone else in the vehicle with you. If you are able, call the police and remain at the scene until they arrive. The police will assist in getting an ambulance if you need one. Do not say anything to the other driver about the cause of the accident. Go to the Emergency Department of a local hospital. Remember, your health is of the utmost importance! You should also report the accident to your insurance company if you are able.
After you are stable, call Robbins Law to speak to an attorney.
