If your child has been involved in a Connecticut car accident case resulting in hospitalization, as a parent, you should have a number of questions that need to be answered right away. Get those answers now from attorneys who have decades of experience in obtaining money damages for injured people.

Jury charges are instructions that the trial court judge will give to the jurors after the closing statements have been made by the attorneys but before they begin deliberations. There charges are the law in the State of Connecticut as it relates to certain decisions, which the jury will be called upon to make. One decision that the jury will have to make involves Damages- Fear Resulting from an Increased Risk of Future Medical Treatment and Disability and an appropriate jury charge might be:

3.4-5 Damages - Fear Resulting from an Increased Risk of Future Medical

Treatment and Disability

The plaintiff may recover damages for fear of an increased risk of future medical treatment and disability proximately caused by the defendant's negligence. The fear must be rational in that the consequence feared has a reasonable basis in the evidence. Fear of a completely fictitious or imagined consequence, having no reasonable basis, is not a recoverable element.
