No matter how it happens, getting hurt is not something you want to go through. Whether it’s because of a traffic accident, sports injury or other cause, if you’re hurt because of negligence or inappropriate care, it’s important that you know that you have a right to pursue compensation for your losses.

People suffer personal injuries because of many situations such as:

  • Slips and falls
  • Trucking accidents
  • Workplace injuries
  • Pedestrian accidents
  • Auto crashes

No matter what the primary cause is of yours, you deserve to have someone help you look into the options you have for receiving compensation. Some people will be able to pursue an insurance claim, while others may need to file a lawsuit against a responsible party. Every situation is different, which is why it’s a good idea to reach out to your attorney as soon as you can after an injury.

How long do you have to make a personal injury claim?

Connecticut has a two-year limitation on filing personal injury claims. Since that’s the case, you’ll want to start a claim as soon as possible, even if you’re not sure if your claim will have enough support to receive compensation. Starting a claim helps you protect your right to recovery, even though you may not know how this injury will affect you in the long term at this time.
