Understanding Connecticut's Comparative Negligence Laws

If you have been wrongfully injured in Connecticut, there are a few things that you must understand before taking any action to pursue your case. First and foremost, you must review the circumstances of your accident and determine whether or not someone else's negligent actions have contributed to your harm. If, for example, you were struck by a car while crossing the street, you must be able to show that the driver had acted either carelessly or recklessly while behind the wheel. This means that they could have been talking on the phone, driving at excessive speeds or driving while intoxicated at the time of the collision. From there, you must ask yourself if you had any part in causing the accident-as this may jeopardize your ability to recover compensation.
