Personal Injury Attorney
Put Years of Experience in Your Corner!
Being involved in an accident that results in injuries can be a traumatic and overwhelming situation. Most people are uncertain as to what steps to take following their accident and may make the mistake of relying on an insurance adjuster to help them with their claim. Contacting a personal injury lawyer to protect the individual's rights would better serve their interests.
If the negligence of another caused the accident, you have the right to file a claim for compensation. The other party's insurance company will not have your best interests in mind when settling your case, as their main concern is quickly closing the claim and settling for as little as possible. Injuries can often take some time to heal and may lead to unforeseen complications that require further medical attention.
How Long Do I Have to File a Personal Injury Claim in Connecticut?
According to General Statutes of Connecticut section 52-584, the statute of limitations for personal injury cases is two years. This means you have two years from the date your injury occurred to file your claim, or you will lose your right to file and your right to recover compensation. While two years may seem like a significant amount of time, there are exceptions that can change this time limit so it’s important to speak to an skilled attorney about the specifics of your case as soon as you can.
