Connecticut Medical Malpractice Lawyer Advice

Statute of limitations and Your Connecticut Medical Malpractice Lawyer

An experienced Connecticut medical malpractice lawyer may advise you that the statute of limitations limits the amount of time you have to take action. If you or your Connecticut medical malpractice lawyer do not file suit within the statute of limitations than your case may be dismissed, and you may be prohibited from taking any legal action on that case.

These limitations vary between states, and your Connecticut medical malpractice lawyer should understand any possibilities for tolling from the date of discovering the injury. For example, some states allow tolling of the statute of limitations until the minor becomes a legal adult.

Notice provisions, particularly those relating to government entities, may have short compliance periods. Your Connecticut medical malpractice lawyer should understand that failing to satisfy these provisions may forfeit your case even if you satisfy the statute of limitations.

A claim may involve multiple defendants and multiple causes of action thereby complicating the statute of limitations. Your Connecticut medical malpractice lawyer must accurately identify deadlines and comply with any statutory notice demands.

Likewise, certain states require that a certificate of good faith be completed. These and similar documents hold that you or your Connecticut medical malpractice lawyer get a medical expert to review the file and find that there is a good faith basis for a medical malpractice case.
