Navigating the law can be confusing. Here, we’ve answered some of the questions we hear most often from prospective clients.
How Long Do I Have After an Accident to File a Lawsuit?
Generally speaking, Connecticut law requires you to bring a personal injury lawsuit within 2 years from the date of the injury. The facts and parties involved may invoke notice requirements with more stringent deadlines that could bar your claim prior to the 2-year statute.
If you have additional questions or would like to speak about your unique situation, send us a message or call (860) 390-5767 to schedule a free consultation with our legal team.
Will We Have to Go to Trial for My Case?
Most personal injury cases will be resolved before going to trial, but our firm takes the “better safe than sorry” approach to assure you are prepared if it does. The decision to go to trial will depend on the practical and legal risks involved and the significance of the weaknesses and strengths of your particular case.
How Much is My Case Worth?
Because every case and injured person is different, there is no “one size fits all.”
The perceived value of your claim could depend on:
- Whether there is a dispute over the cause or severity of your injuries
- Your efforts to seek and comply with necessary medical treatment
- The medical evidence available to support your claim
- The permanency of your injuries
- The severity of your injuries and its impact on your quality of life
- Whether you will need medical treatment in the future
- The credibility of the client and his or her witnesses
How Long Will It Take to Resolve My Case?
The process should be tailored to the particular facts, legal issues, and needs of the client in order to obtain the best result.
The length of your case could depend on:
- How long it takes to recover from your injuries
- Whether there is a dispute over who is at fault or responsible for causing your injuries
- The factual and legal complexity of the case (multiple parties, fatalities, etc.)
- Whether the opposing party is willing to negotiate and provide a fair settlement offer
- If parties are willing and able to resolve the claim at mediation or arbitration as an alternative to trial
- Whether we have to take the case to trial
