  • Obtain copies of any accident or incident reports written after the accident, such as a police crash report or a business accident report.
  • Follow your doctor’s treatment plan and recovery instructions.
  • Request copies of medical records of your treatment and rehabilitation.

Compensation Available in a Personal Injury Case

Under Connecticut’s statute of limitations for injury claims, you typically have two years after suffering injuries to file suit against those responsible for causing your injuries. Furthermore, you have two years to file a claim against the federal government for injuries that occur on federal property or by the negligence of federal employees. However, for personal injury claims against the state government, you have one year from the date you discover the facts supporting your claim to file a written notice of your claim with the government, although you cannot file your notice of claim more than three years after the acts that led to your injury.
