Generally speaking the sooner you can reach out for a consultation by a New Haven personal injury lawyer after you’ve been injured, the better. Whether you’ve been injured on the job, in an auto accident, or another way, a personal injury attorney can help you determine if you should pursue a case.
Why does timeliness matter?
The statute of limitations on most injuries in Connecticut is two years, but many case types require that you file a claim within one year of your injury. According to the law, it is important to report your injury as soon as possible, but it’s also important to your case. If you want to file suit against the state or a municipality, it is 90 days.
When you are injured it is of critical importance that you start the process of determining your options as soon as you can. This will allow you to detail your injuries with them still fresh in your mind and will also allow any discovery of material necessary to your claim to be collected in a timely manner.
