Deadlines for Filing Personal Injury Lawsuits in Connecticut

Under the Connecticut statute of limitations for injury claims, you typically have two years after getting hurt due to someone’s negligence or fault to file a personal injury lawsuit against the party or parties who bear liability for your injuries and losses. However, you may have less time to file your personal injury claim under certain circumstances.

For example, when pursuing a personal injury claim against Connecticut, the law requires you to send a written notice of your claim to the state government within one year of the date that you got injured.

Talk to a personal injury attorney from Holth & Kollman, LLC, as soon as possible after getting hurt in an accident or incident in East Haddam to give yourself the best chance of filing your personal injury claims on time. Filing a personal injury claim or lawsuit after the applicable deadlines expire may result in losing your opportunity to seek financial recovery.
