Procedure for a Personal Injury Case in Connecticut

Determine If You Have a Case

The basis for a personal injury claim in Connecticut is another party’s negligent actions and/or behavior caused the injury, and the victim sustained a physical injury and has suffered damages such as missed work, medical bills, etc., as a result of the negligence. If you are not sure whether you have a case, we can help assess your potential claim.

Contact a Connecticut Personal Injury Attorney

If you do have a valid claim, your first step should be hiring experienced representation, like D’Amico & Pettinicchi. The statute of limitations makes personal injury claims time sensitive. Because of this, it is important to contact a local Connecticut injury attorney as soon as you decide to move forward with legal action. Our lawyers can help file the necessary documents and aid you in the collection of important evidence that shows that negligence has occurred. This includes:

  • Documents from the police
  • Photographs of the scene and the injury or injuries
  • Any medical documents that you received based on your medical care
  • Anything else that helps strengthen your case

File a Claim

Once you hire a dedicated Connecticut injury lawyer from D’Amico & Pettinicchi, and it is established that there is enough documentation that shows negligence has occurred, we will file a personal injury lawsuit in court. After your suit is filed, you will need to wait for the case to go to trial. As you wait, we will continue developing your case in a process known as discovery. It is worth noting that your claim may never go to trial, as many cases we are involved in settle, given our known reputation for success.

Consider Settlement

Most personal injury claims are never brought to trial and are instead settled out of court. During the settlement process, our skilled legal professionals work to get the best possible monetary outcome for you and your family. When a settlement agreement is reached, contracts are typically signed regarding payments and any additional details pertaining to the settlement of the claim. Once a claim is settled, both parties typically sign a release of liability, and the claim cannot be reopened.

Personal Injury Lawsuit Trial

If your case goes to trial, both parties will be able to bring forth evidence in front of a judge or jury to argue their case. At the conclusion of the trial, the judge or jury will determine whether an individual is liable for any damages in a claim that is brought against them. If an individual is awarded any damages, all other factors associated with the claim including comparative fault will be analyzed, discussed, and ruled on during the trial.

Types of Personal Injury Damages and Compensation

When you have been injured due to someone else’s negligence, the associated physical and emotional challenges can result in loss of work, medical expenses, and other losses. Those losses are known as damages and they are not just economic. A personal injury claim can help you recover several different types of damages, including:

  • Medical expenses, such as doctor, hospital, ER, and prescription drug fees
  • Current and future lost wages
  • Pain and suffering
  • Anxiety
  • PTSD
  • Depression
  • And more

In addition, in the case of wrongful death, the estate of the deceased individual is able to seek compensation for damages such as:

  • Loss of enjoyment of life
  • Lost income
  • Medical care costs
  • Funeral and Burial Expenses
  • Spousal loss of consortium, including loss of love, companionship, and affection
  • Conscious pain and suffering prior to death

How a Connecticut Personal Injury Attorney Can Help With Your Claim

As soon as you retain a Connecticut personal injury lawyer at D’Amico & Pettinicchi to represent you, we will deal with the insurance company on your behalf. We will launch our own investigation, take care of the paperwork, and handle negotiations while keeping you informed. All you need to do is focus on getting better while we take care of your legal issues.

Throughout the process, we will be your advocate, guide, and legal resource. Our knowledgeable attorneys will answer your questions and listen to your concerns as we pursue accountability and a legal resolution. Thanks to our experience, reputation, and thorough preparation, we are often able to resolve personal injury claims through a negotiated settlement with the insurance company—of course, you will have the final say in whether to accept a settlement offer. But our team is always prepared to go to court and advocate for our clients before a judge and jury, including honing our arguments and fine-tuning our strategies in our in-house courtroom.

We cannot undo what happened to you, but we can handle what happens next. Call today to speak with one of our compassionate attorneys about your case.

Representing Clients Nationwide for Connecticut Injuries.

At D’Amico & Pettinicchi, our accomplished lawyers take on a wide range of personal injury case types, including:


We expect nursing homes, memory care facilities and assisted living facilities to protect our aging and disabled loved ones. When your trust is violated, there must be accountability. If your loved one was harmed, we would be honored to meet with you.


No family should have to go through such a devastating loss, and when such losses do happen, there is an immediate need for accountability and closure.


Traffic accidents involving passenger cars, trucks, motorcycles, bicycles, and pedestrians are all too common on the roads throughout Connecticut. When you are involved in any of these types of crashes, you should seek legal guidance.


When we go to a doctor’s office or hospital, we expect that the medical professionals there will follow established standards of care and practice safe, effective medicine. Those standards of care exist for a reason: when doctors do not follow them, patients can be seriously hurt.


Sexual abuse leaves psychological and emotional scars on any survivor, especially children. All too often, victims of sexual abuse are violated by people trusted to care for them. When a caregiver, teacher, mentor, or family member abuses a child sexually, it robs that child of their basic human rights.


Property owners have a duty to keep their premises free from defective conditions. Falls due to a defective condition, for example, can cause traumatic brain injuries and other serious injuries such as broken bones.

Our Community Involvement

D’Amico & Pettinicchi proudly supports great causes throughout Connecticut. We are involved in our community and dedicated to making our community safer and healthier, and we carry that commitment through everything we do.
