After An Auto Accident

Statute of limitations for recovery of compensation after an accident is generally two years in Connecticut. The clock starts ticking after your accident. Time goes by quickly, especially when you are injured, and daily life is complicated. For these reasons, it is important to have a personal injury attorney on your side as soon as possible, to begin gathering evidence toward a strong case on your behalf.

Please also note that Connecticut follows the modified comparative fault rule. This means that if you are the plaintiff seeking compensation, and you are considered to be more than 50 percent responsible for an accident, you may recover nothing. Insurance companies may try to force you to accept an inadequate settlement by invoking this rule. To protect your right to recover compensation, get an attorney who will stand up for you.

After A Construction Site Injury

As an injured worker, you likely qualify for workers’ compensation benefits from your employer’s insurer. For best results, work with an attorney to ensure you get all benefits you are eligible for.

Besides your workers’ compensation claim, you may be able to file a lawsuit against a third party (not your employer). An experienced personal injury lawyer can coordinate your personal injury claim with your workers’ compensation case to save money on your case. The Law Offices of Rafael Pazmino, LLC, will work to maximize the total compensation that you may receive.
