The Importance of Acting Quickly
If you or a loved one has been injured in an accident, your main concern is to heal and recover. We understand.
However, if your accident was caused by someone else's negligence, it is important to seek legal representation as quickly as possible, and here's why:
- Evidence may disappear — Evidence like skid marks may fade over time.
- Memories fade — Witnesses may forget important details of the accident.
- 911 calls erased — After 30 days, 911 recordings are erased.
- Security camera footage may be taped over
The sooner you contact a personal injury lawyer, divorce and family law, the sooner he or she can begin gathering evidence, contacting witnesses, and prepare a case on your behalf. Insurance companies begin their own investigation the minute they hear word of your accident. Counter their efforts by contacting an attorney who is committed to protecting your rights.

Statute of Limitations
In Connecticut, there is a limited time in which you can file a personal injury or medical malpractice claim. In general, from the date of your accident, you have two years in which you can bring a suit against the person or party who negligently harmed you. There are some exceptions to this time limitation.
Even though you have two years to file a claim, it is better to act sooner than later to preserve evidence and gather important witness testimony. Also there are some types of claims that will be barred if notice is not given in as few as 90 days.
If you have been injured in a car accident, construction accident, medical error accident, or any other personal injury accident, contact our law firm today for a consultation.
