If you have been injured in some type of accident, been attacked by an animal, received some type of personal injury or been the victim of medical malpractice in CT then one of your first questions will be what money are you entitled to recover from the person or persons who caused your injuries. So within the first two minutes of a telephone call or new client interview we will be asked: What compensation might I receive if my personal injury claim is successful?
Usually, a person who is liable for an injury-which generally means his or her liability insurance company-must pay an injured person for:
- Past and future medical care and related expenses
- Past and future income lost because of the accident
- Permanent physical disability or disfigurement
- Loss of family, social and educational experiences
- Emotional damages, such as stress, embarrassment, depression, or strains on family relationships
- Damaged property
You will be awarded "damages," or compensation, which is money intended to restore you to the position you were in before your injury. This money is not considered income (excluding monies paid for loss of income) and is not taxable as income by the federal government or state.
