Injuries caused by someone else’s negligence or wrongful conduct can be life-altering. You were healthy and vibrant one minute, and the next, you were dealing with painful injuries, doctors’ appointments, and lost wages. Then, there is the emotional toll caused by your personal injury. You might feel angry at the person that caused the injury and depressed and anxious about your physical and financial issues.
You must notify a city or county of your intent to sue within six months. The State Claims Commissioner must be notified of a claim against the state within one year.
Connecticut law allows for only Two Years to file a personal injury claim. This deadline is critical to your rights because if you don't get your lawsuit started in court before Connecticut's two-year filing window closes, you'll lose your right to have your case heard. Call our offices today to avoid missing your window of opportunity.

You must prove that the other party caused your injury to have a successful personal injury claim. First, you have to show that the other party owed you a duty of care and breached it. Connecticut defines duty of care as a statewide, legal obligation that requires individuals to take responsibility for any injury resulting from their negligent action. For example, Connecticut motorists have a duty of care to follow the rules of the road. That includes stopping at red lights. If a driver runs a red light, he or she has breached the duty of care. That breach put you and other motorists at risk.
Finally, you must prove that by breaching the duty of care, the other party caused your injuries. Using the previous example, if a driver runs a red light, hits your car, and breaks your leg, you can prove causation. By running the red light, the driver caused an accident. The accident resulted in a broken leg. This is a straightforward example, but personal injury cases are generally much more complicated. That’s why it’s vital to hire a Connecticut personal injury attorney.
