Common Car Accident Injuries in Connecticut
Serious and even catastrophic injuries are often the outcome for far too many involved in Connecticut car accidents. In such cases, there is no dollar figure certain to fully compensate victims for all that has been lost. Yet, substantial financial resources can ease the unexpected burdens produced by harm, including:
- Spinal cord damage
- Broken bones
- Herniated discs
- Back and neck injuries
- Skin burns and resulting disfigurement
- Limb amputations due to nerve damage
- Injuries to vital internal organs
- Traumatic brain injury/lasting cognitive impairment
- Torn ligaments
- Internal bleeding
A motor vehicle accident can incur massive losses in the form of mounting medical bills, lost wages, physical therapy, and rehabilitation expenses. Financial losses also stem from necessary accessibility modifications to the home, property damage, limited future earning capacity, and more. In addition, you may be eligible to receive compensation for non-economic damages, such as pain and suffering.
Given this stark reality, it is essential for those involved in serious car accidents to pursue the full amount of compensation available to them under state law.
