There are many reason why a Connecticut injury or accident claim might settle before trial. One reason that a case might settle is the fact that there is a great deal of uncertainty as to what a jury might do and how much money the jury might award.  A jury must make determinations and decisions as to a variety of issues which could range from liability, to contributory negligence to the validity of special defenses to damages and injuries.

Before a jury determines what facts have been proven and how the law should be applied to the facts  the jury must be "charged" by the trial court judge. Jury charges, which are read by the judge to the jury,  instruct the jurors on how to apply the law of the State of Connecticut to the facts they have found to exist. One of the charges the judge might give to the jury, which would address the issue of comparative negligence could be as follows:

The defendant has filed a special defense alleging that the plaintiff's injuries were legally caused by the plaintiff's own negligence. The defendant must prove the elements of this special defense by a preponderance of the evidence. Specifically, the defendant must prove that the plaintiff was negligent in one or more of the ways specified in the special defense and that such negligence was a legal cause of any of the plaintiff's injuries.

There is so much you need to do and you need to know. You need to concentrate on tending to your medical needs and the needs of your family. Let an experienced team of legal professionals take care of your case and all of the issues that need to be investigated and researched so you can just worry about getting better.
