Obtaining Money Damages for your Child's Disability Following a Connecticut Accident

Posted by Richard P. Hastings | Dec 05, 2013 | 0 Comments

After being seriously injured in a Connecticut accident case, you will have a great number of questions about many different issues that will affect you as a result of being injured. Some of the many common questions you will have include but are not limited to:

  •  You will have questions about who is going to pay your medical bills? 
  • How are you going to obtain money for your lost wages?
  • Who is going to pay to have your damaged property repaired?
  • How long is it going to take you to get better?
  • What doctors should you be seeing?
  • What should you be telling your doctors?
  • How can you get better medical care?
  • How can you get better quicker?
  • What should you be doing?
  • What should you not be doing?
  • How is the value of your CT personal injury case determined?
  • When will you be able to have access to this money?

These are standard questions that most Connecticut accident victims have after being injured. Our experienced Connecticut accident attorneys are prepared to answer these questions for you.

One of the questions which you might have is how is your disability, and how it affects you, established. Basically speaking, an injured party, or the plaintiff, may testify as to how any injury has affected his or her life. You can also call upon other witnesses, such as family members, coworkers or friends who have seen you before and after the accident, to testify as to how your injuries have affected you. Further evidence of your disability may include loss of income, a reduction of your future earning capacity, and how this disability has affected you on a day-to-day basis in your personal life, business life, social life and through other activities which you would normally engage in.

Your disability may also be established by the testimony of a qualified expert witness who could include your treating physician. Expert witnesses, especially doctors, commonly express opinions relating to the permanency and level of the permanency that is related to the accident in which the injured party suffered this disability. In many cases, the doctor will provide a report which references a guide or manual in how this disability rating has been established. These opinions must be based upon the reasonable medical certainty standard and not be based upon possibilities. In certain circumstances, a injury may be established even though there was no medical testimony expressly substantiating this disability.
