Our law firm’s approach to your medical malpractice lawsuit
Connecticut regulations mandate that patients considering filing a medical malpractice suit have an expert evaluate the case and advise on whether negligence or malpractice was involved. Our attorneys help you find a professional to review your situation and, if the expert determines that negligence or malpractice occurred, we begin to build a solid case.
Elements of a medical malpractice claim
To prevail in a medical malpractice lawsuit, you must prove all elements prescribed by law. Our attorneys thoroughly investigate your claim and collect persuasive evidence to establish:
- Your doctor — or other medical professional or facility — owed you a duty of care
- The duty was breached
- The breach caused you injuries
- The damages you suffered because of your injuries
Connecticut statute of limitations for filing medical malpractice claims
Connecticut has a two-year statute of limitations on medical malpractice lawsuits, except in situations in which the negligence could not have been recognized in those two years, and even then, the deadline is only extended to three years, after which you are forever barred from bringing a claim. If you suspect you have been the victim of malpractice, let our law firm review your case at a no-obligation free consultation. You have nothing to lose and everything to gain by immediately allowing our attorneys to determine whether you have a valid cause of action against a medical professional or entity.
