Types of Personal Injury Cases
In Vermont, as long as you are 50 percent or less at fault for an accident, you may be legally entitled to monetary damages. The statute of limitations for personal injury cases is three years from the date of the accident or injury to file a lawsuit in the state’s civil court system. Failure to file a lawsuit after the three-year window will result in a dismissal of your claim by the court.
Types of cases our Rutland personal injury lawyers handle are the following:
- Car accidents
- Truck accidents
- Motorcycle accidents
- Product liability
- Premises liability
- Medical malpractice
- Animal bites
- Workers’ compensation
- Wrongful death
Personal injury lawsuits are used to recover both economic and noneconomic damages. Economic damages are designed to compensate you for actual financial losses (i.e. medical bills and lost wages), while noneconomic damages are intended to compensate you for intangible harm (i.e. emotional distress or pain and suffering). You need to prove that the negligent party owed a duty of care, there was a breach of the duty of care, that breach resulted in your injuries, and that you suffered damages.
