Examples of catastrophic injuries are:

  • Paralysis (loss of function and/or feeling)
  • Brain injuries or brain damage
  • Lost limbs or amputations

How to Maximize Your Settlement for a Catastrophic Injury in Connecticut

Although no dollar amount will ever suffice to pay for a life-altering injury, achieving a fair and full settlement from an insurance company can be integral to your future. It can allow your family to pay for necessary medical care without financial stress. The following tips can help you maximize the financial outcome of your catastrophic injury claim in Connecticut:

  • Report a serious accident or injury to the police right away.
