How We Can Help You
For personal injury cases in Vermont, the statute of limitations to file
a lawsuit in the state’s civil court system is three years from
the date the accident or injury occurred. Attempting to file a case after
the three-year window has closed will likely lead to denial.
The state uses a “modified” comparative fault rule in personal
injury cases. So if you were 50 percent or less liable for an accident,
you may be eligible to recover compensation.
- Our Burlington personal injury attorneys handle the following types of cases:
- Car accidents
- Truck accidents
- Motorcycle accidents
- Product liability
- Premises liability
- Medical malpractice
- Animal bites
- Workers’ compensation
- Wrongful death
Both economic and noneconomic damages are available if you succeed in your
personal injury cases. Economic damages directly related to the “bottom
line cost” of your injury, such as past and future medical expenses,
lost earnings, and other out-of-pocket expenses. On the other hand, noneconomic
damages compensate the intangible losses, including emotional distress
and pain and suffering.
