Can I file a lawsuit long after an initial accident happened?

Like many other states, Connecticut has a limit on how long after an accident you can file a personal injury claim. This limit is called the statute of limitations, and it is two years in this state. This means that you have until two years to the date after an accident to file your claim against the person or entity that injured you. However, some exceptions might be made in cases where the symptoms or signs of injury did not occur until long after an injury, such as brain damage or other injuries. The best way to know your options is to talk with an experienced legal representative about your situation.
