Filing a Car Accident Claim Within the Statute of Limitations

If you are in a car accident in Connecticut, it is imperative seek legal help from a Connecticut car accident attorney as soon as you are physically able. The reason for such immediate action is due to a set of laws known as the Statute of limitations (SOL). 

The SOL is a state law that restricts the time period within which legal proceedings may be brought.In most cases the SOL begins from the date of the incidence that caused the injury - such as a car crash, slip and fall...and ends two years to the date.

Statutes of limitations date back to early Roman Law, and are a fundamental part of European and U.S. law. These statutes, are to prevent individuals from filing a claim after all evidence has been lost or after the facts have become obscure through the passage of time. As time passes, papers may be destroyed, witnesses may die, or the conditions of a transaction may be forgotten.

If you don't file a claim before your state's deadline, you will lose your right to sue and recover money damages for your injuries and any future complications arising from your injury. Therefore, if you or a loved one is hurt in an accident, please contact one of our Board Certified trial attorneys at 1-800-4-INJURY before it is too late.
