Lost Limbs And Body Parts

Being forced to endure any sort of catastrophic injury in the wake of a negligently caused accident can prove to be devastating, but some may argue that losing a limb takes the top spot. From an arm or a leg to a finger or a toe, undergoing an amputation of any kind can have a serious impact on your life.

Learning to live with a missing limb is never easy, as day-to-day routines must be altered, and prosthetic devices may need to be implemented. You must adjust to their new appearance, which can ultimately prove to be one of the most difficult hurdles to overcome.

If you have lost a limb at the hands of a reckless or careless individual, you have the right to pursue damages for the unnecessary suffering you have endured.

How Long Do You Have To Pursue Legal Action In Connecticut?

If you have suffered an injury that was caused by negligence, misconduct or malpractice, you only have two years from the date of injury to officially file a lawsuit, according to the Connecticut statute of limitations.

In the event that an injury was not discovered right away, however, and an amputation was needed thereafter, you may have up to three years from the date that the negligent act took place to pursue your case.

If you have suffered the loss of your limb and you are unsure of whether or not the statute of limitations has expired on your case, it is imperative that you consult an attorney at our firm as soon as possible. There may still be time.
