When you suffer a personal injury as a result of someone else's negligence, you may be entitled to compensation. Personal injury claims can only be pursued in Connecticut for a limited time period, called a statute of limitations, after the incident occurred. If the injured victim fails to claim compensation within the time frame, he or she loses the right to make a claim or file a lawsuit.
In Connecticut, personal injury claims must be pursued within 2 years from the date of the accident.
Connecticut's statutes of limitations also apply to:
Wrongful Death: The suit must be filed within two years from the date of death.
Medical Malpractice: The claim must be pursued within two years from the date the injury was first sustained or discovered.
Product Liability: The time limit for initiating legal proceedings with regard to product liability is three years from the date the injury occurred or from when the injury was discovered.
