Are You Entitled To Hedonic Damages?

Posted by Richard P. Hastings | Mar 10, 2013 | 0 Comments

If you have been seriously injured in a Wallingford CT accident one of the concerns that you will have is what is your case worth. It is very important that you have an experienced Wallingford CT accident attorney and injury lawyer assist you in the development, presentation and prosecution of your case. There are a great many elements, facts, circumstances and situations that must be reviewed, and potentially investigated, to properly determine the value of any one personal injury case.

One of the elements of damage to which you may be entitled is that which is referred to as hedonic damages. Hedonic damages are damages for loss of enjoyment of life. In other words you may be entitled to an award of money damages that would compensate you for your inability to carry on your life's activities like you did prior to your accident which was caused by the fault of another. When a person has been seriously injured in a Wallingford CT accident or injury case, generally several things will have occurred: there will be certain activities that the injured party may no longer perform as a result of their disability; there will be certain activities that the injured party may perform differently after the accident that is a result of their disability; and there may be certain activities that the injured party may perform equally well both before and after the subject accident. The damages that you would be entitled to for loss of life's activities would depend upon a great number of issues.

If you have been seriously injured in some type of a Connecticut car, truck or motorcycle accident case, a dog bite injury case, a slip and fall or trip and fall case, a products liability case, a premises liability case, a hit-and-run accident, a pedestrian accident, a bicycle accident, or any other type of accident that causes a serious injury then you need to consult with an experienced Connecticut injury attorney and accident lawyer. You should not speak with the insurance adjuster, of the at fault party, unless and until you get the advice of an experienced Wallingford CT accident  lawyer.
