Your First Steps After an Injury

If you or a loved one has suffered an injury, taking immediate and appropriate actions is crucial for your health, and for any legal claims you may pursue later. Here's what you should do: 

  1. Seek Medical Attention: Your health comes first. Even if the injury seems minor, symptoms can appear or worsen days after the accident. A medical professional will document your injuries, which is essential for any legal action. 

  1. Report the Incident: Whether it's a car accident, a slip at a public place, or an incident at work, report it to the relevant authorities or management. This creates an official record. 

  1. Collect Evidence: If possible, take photos of your injuries, the accident scene, and anything that may have contributed to your injury. Get contact information from witnesses. 

  1. Keep Record of Expenses: Save all receipts related to your injury, including medical bills, transportation to medical appointments, and any other expenses incurred due to your injury. 

  1. Contact a Personal Injury Attorney: Before discussing your case with insurance companies, consult a personal injury attorney to discuss your rights and potential compensation. Sacramone Law offers free consultations to help you understand your options moving forward. 

Taking these steps will not only put you on the path to recovery but also preserve your rights and prepare for any legal actions you may decide to pursue.

Seek Fair Compensation

Personal Injury Services at Sacramone Law 

At Sacramone Law, I offer a range of personal injury services, working to meet the unique needs of each client. No matter what your situation may be, my goal is to get you the best possible outcome. 

Car Accidents 

Car accidents are a dishearteningly common occurrence, affecting millions of Americans each year. They can result in many injuries, from whiplash to more severe trauma. If you find yourself a victim of a car accident, it's crucial to act quickly.  

Motorcycle Accidents 

For the free spirits like me who choose the open road of a motorcycle, the bond of the community is strong. But when a motorcycle accident happens, the consequences can be dire. As a motorcycle rider for decades, I understand the depth of loss and injury that can occur. My personal injury practice prioritizes riders' rights and holds those responsible for your accident accountable. 

Workplace Injuries 

A workplace injury can turn your sense of security upside down. From simple trips to repetitive strain injuries, I've seen the full spectrum of workplace accidents, and I know the stress they cause. My experience allows me to build a case that is both comprehensive and compelling, aiming to secure you the compensation you need to recover and carry on with your life. 

Slip and Fall Accidents 

Even a small slip and fall can cause serious harm. It could be due to a negligent property owner, poor maintenance, or unsafe conditions. Regardless of the cause, my firm will fight to ensure that you are not the one left picking up the pieces. 

Medical Malpractice 

Medical professionals are often the ones we entrust with our health and well-being. When that trust is breached, the consequences can be catastrophic. Whether you seek recompense for surgical errors, misdiagnosis, or any medical mistake, I will rigorously pursue your medical malpractice claim. 

Product Liability 

When a defective product causes harm, it's the manufacturer's responsibility. My role as your advocate in a product liability case is to demonstrate how the product failed and how that failure caused your injury. With me at your side, no corporation is too large to be held accountable. 

Personal Injury Claims Process

The first step in the process is to file a claim. This begins with a thorough investigation of the accident and the collection of evidence. This evidentiary phase is crucial and I work to uncover and build a strong case with all pertinent details. 

The next phase involves negotiation with insurers or other defendants. Insurance adjusters may offer settlements, but they typically lowball the initial offer.  

If a fair settlement is not attainable through negotiation, I am prepared to take your case to trial. Here, the presentation of evidence, witness testimony, and legal argument will culminate in a verdict by a jury of your peers. Throughout this process, my focus is always on achieving the most favorable outcome for you. 

Possible Damages and Compensation

Understanding the various types of damages for which you may be eligible is crucial in any personal injury case. Here is a breakdown of the different categories: 

Economic Damages: These cover tangible financial losses you have faced as a result. This includes: 

  • Medical expenses 

  • Lost wages 

  • Property damage 

  • Any other out-of-pocket expenses 

Non-Economic Damages: For the intangible effects, these damages compensate for: 

  • Pain and suffering

  • Emotional distress

  • Loss of enjoyment of life

  • Loss of consortium

Punitive Damages: Applied in cases of gross negligence, these are intended to: 

  • Punish the defendant

  • Deter similar conduct in the future

At Sacramone Law, I'm dedicated to guiding you through this process, aiming to secure every bit of compensation you deserve.

Personal Injury FAQ

Understanding personal injury law can be complicated, so it's natural to have questions. Here are common questions we come across: 

How Long Do I Have to File a Personal Injury Claim? 

In Connecticut, most personal injury claims must be filed within two years of the date of the injury. This is known as the statute of limitations. However, there are exceptions, and it's always best to consult with an attorney as soon as possible to understand your rights. 

Will I Have to Go to Court? 

It's not always necessary to go to court. Many personal injury cases are resolved through negotiation and settlement. However, should it be in your best interest, I am fully prepared to take your case to trial. 

How Much Is My Personal Injury Claim Worth? 

The value of your personal injury claim depends on a number of factors, including the nature and severity of your injuries, their impact on your life, and the insurance coverage available. No two cases are alike, but be assured that I will work tirelessly to maximize the value of your claim. 

Do I Really Need a Personal Injury Attorney? 

While it's not legally required to have an attorney represent you in a personal injury claim, it's highly advisable. An experienced personal injury attorney can protect your rights, advise you on the strengths and weaknesses of your case, and ensure you do not accept an unfair settlement.
