Damages pursuable in a Connecticut car accident case

Connecticut residents who get hurt in a car accident may be able to seek financial compensation by filing a personal injury case against the at-fault party in the crash. However, the viability of such a claim will largely depend on the facts and evidence surrounding the accident. For injured people who do have viable claims, the biggest question they have usually relates to the kind of damages they can seek.

Before answering this question, it is vital to again point out that the types of damages pursuable will depend on the nature of the accident, and the extent of property and personal injuries caused by the accident. Therefore, it is important to consult with an experienced Connecticut personal injury attorney to get an idea of what damages are pursuable given a specific factual scenario. That being said, let's take a look at the spectrum of compensation that might be pursuable in any given car accident.

Disfigurement is a category of damages that relates to injuries that left someone disfigured or deformed. Scars and other permanent changes to someone's appearance would qualify under this category -- and compensation would be based on the extent of mental suffering caused by the disfigurement. Current and future medical expenses are also commonly pursuable, as injured individuals usually must pay a great deal in medical bills caused by their injuries.

Here are some other commonly pursuable categories of damages: costs related to household services for disabled or recovering individuals (like in-home nurses and other assistants); loss of enjoyment of life; loss of consortium; loss of society and companionship; lost earning capacity; lost wages; mental anguish; pain and suffering; permanent disability; and special damages (which is more of a "catch-all" category).
