Ask a Personal Injury Lawyer: How Soon Do I Need to File a Personal Injury Case?
It is best to contact a lawyer as soon as possible. Every state imposes a time limit, known as a statute of limitations, within which a personal injury lawsuit must be filed in Court. The statute of limitations for personal injury cases in Connecticut can be as short as one year, and the statute may begin to run as soon as you are injured. Moreover, there are certain Notice of Claim requirements in Connecticut that must be complied with or you cannot file a lawsuit. Therefore, because you do not have a lot of time within which to file appropriate Notices or lawsuits, you should speak with an experience lawyer as soon as possible after an injury.
