Personal Injury: Common Questions

Frequently Asked Questions in Personal Injury

How do I know if I have grounds for a personal injury case?

Establishing liability is a crucial aspect of any personal injury claim. In many cases, this is no problem, as it is clear who was responsible for the injury, such as in cases of drunk driving accidents or others in which liability is obvious. Grounds for a personal injury claim is something I am very familiar with, and how to establish and document your claim. Even in those cases, there could be attempts to deny liability. Others are more difficult, such as in birth injury cases, as it must be fully established that the medical professional or facility breached their duty of care during the birth of the child. In all injury claims, it is advised that you contact a Waterbury personal injury lawyer from Law Office of Thomas L. Brayton, III as soon as possible so that all the supporting documentation and evidence for your claim is preserved while it is easily available. I can come to you if you are unable to come to my office to get the process into motion as early as possible.

How much could I expect in a settlement?

Each case must be evaluated, but all the damages must be part of the claim filed. This will include any medical costs, both now and predicted for the future, rehabilitation, nursing care, lost wages, future lost wages, other predicted financial losses, pain and suffering and all other costs that are related to the accident. In catastrophic injury cases, such as traumatic brain injury, spinal cord injury, burn injuries, serious construction accidents including amputations, loss of hearing, eyesight or other, it is absolutely vital that the change in quality of life is addressed in the claim. When I take on your case, I ensure that fair and full financial compensation is aggressively sought on your behalf.

What if my workers' compensation claim was denied?

This is unfortunately far too common, and I have spent years working within the system in resolving this problem. I advise that you contact me immediately so I can review your situation and determine how to best move forward with getting it resolved fairly. I am very familiar with resolving workers' comp denials and in filing workers' comp claims.
