How long do I have to file a medical malpractice claim?

Every year, people pass away and experience a lower quality of life due to medical professional negligence. In New London, and communities throughout the entire state of Connecticut, it is important for you to stand up for your rights if you believe that you have experienced medical malpractice firsthand. However, you should familiarize yourself with the statute of limitations for medical malpractice claims in this state and make sure that you take action in a timely manner and before it is too late.

According to the Connecticut General Assembly, you must file a medical malpractice suit no more than two years after the day you were injured or your injury ought to have been identified. However, you have three years from the day that a medical professional's act occurred to file a claim, even if you had no way to identify medical malpractice at the time.

Having said that, you could be able to file a medical malpractice claim for an act that occurred over three years ago if your doctor had an ongoing responsibility to inform you of the malpractice and its potential ramifications. From a worsened medical condition to physical pain and financial difficulties, medical malpractice can lead to a wide variety of troubles that interfere with daily life and create havoc for entire families. As a result, you should hold a negligent medical professional accountable for their actions as soon as you can.
