Answering Common Personal Injury Questions

If you are considering filing a personal injury lawsuit against the party responsible for your accident, you will most likely have a lot of questions that you would like to have answered. Our skilled attorneys are ready to answer your questions and provide you with valuable insight about how to pursue your case and how to ensure you do everything in your power to make your case successful.

Q. What damages can I receive compensation for in my personal injury claim?

If you were injured due to negligence or someone else's carelessness, you may be eligible to receive compensation for: medical treatment (present and future), lost income from missed work, pain and suffering, loss of consortium (from the death of a loved one), emotional distress, and property damage.

Q. Are personal injury settlements taxable?

In general, no, money you receive in a personal injury settlement is not taxable income because it is intended to replace out-of-pocket expenses incurred as a result of your injury. However, if you are concerned about whether or not your settlement may be taxable you should consult with a Connecticut tax professional.

Q. How are pain and suffering calculated?

There are several different methods that can be used to calculate damages for pain and suffering, but most of the time these calculations take into account several things: the amount of medical treatment required (and related expenses), the length of recovery, the severity and type of injury.
