Who is Responsible for Your Accident?
Our Connecticut Personal Injury Lawyers Can Help
When someone fails to use reasonable care in a situation that results in harm to another person, it’s considered negligence. In order to receive compensation for your injuries, you must first prove that the other driver’s negligent actions caused your accident. Our Connecticut car accident lawyers at Carter Mario Injury Lawyers can help. We’ll investigate the details of your accident and help you determine who is responsible.
If you were injured in an accident, call (800) 900-6700 to request a free initial consultation.
Modified Comparative Negligence
Even if you are partially at fault for your accident, you may be able to seek compensation for your injuries. That’s because Connecticut is a “modified comparative negligence” state. This means that negligence is determined by the percentage of fault. The law of modified comparative negligence means that as long as a judge or jury decides that 51 percent of the responsibility for the accident belongs to the other driver, you can still collect damages or compensation.
How Is Compensation Decided?
The amount of compensation you can receive for your auto accident depends on the distribution of fault for the accident between you and the other driver. Modified comparative negligence cases can be hard to prove without an experienced Connecticut auto accident lawyer on your side to gather evidence and help make sure the correct percentage of blame is placed.
