Do You Have a Westport Personal Injury Case?

In Connecticut, if someone is injured because of another person’s carelessness or recklessness, the victim (plaintiff) can file a personal injury case in pursuit of financial compensation to make up for their injuries and losses. There must be proof, however, that the accident or injury was caused by the wrongful act of the other party (the defendant). Most plaintiffs base their claims on the legal theory of negligence. Someone is negligent if he or she does not use a prudent amount of care for a situation.

To prove negligence in a personal injury case in Westport, there must be evidence of four elements:

  • Duty of care. A duty of care is an obligation to act in a certain way to ensure the safety of others, such as a driver’s duty to follow roadway rules
  • Dereliction of duty. A dereliction or deviation from the duty of care can refer to anything that another party wouldn’t do if they were being reasonably careful.
  • Direct cause. The defendant’s action or omission must be the proximate or actual cause of the plaintiff’s injury.
  • Damages. There must be compensable losses, or damages, connected to the defendant’s breach of duty. Common examples are injuries, lost wages, medical bills and property damage.

If a person or party commits an act of negligence and this injures someone else, the negligent party can be held liable, or financially responsible, for related losses. Find out if you have a case during a free evaluation at Connolly Brennan Ralabate, PC.
