FAQs: Seeking Financial Compensation for Medical Malpractice in Connecticut
Q: How do I know if I have a claim for medical malpractice?
Proving that a doctor or other health care provider committed medical malpractice requires a detailed factual assessment and a thorough understanding of the law. In other words, as a patient, the only way to know for sure whether you have a claim is to speak with an attorney. Our firm offers free consultations, and we will be happy to do the research necessary to determine if you should file a claim.
Q: How long do I have to file a medical malpractice claim in Connecticut?
In most cases, you have two years from the date of your health care provider’s mistake to file a claim for medical malpractice. However, if it was not possible to discover your provider’s mistake immediately, you have two years from the date that you reasonably should have discovered the mistake, subject to a maximum time window of three years.
That said, you should not wait any longer than necessary to seek help. It will be important to take certain steps related to your claim as soon as possible. And the sooner you file your claim, the sooner you can get on the road to recovery.
Q: Do most medical malpractice claims settle?
Yes. Statistically speaking, most medical malpractice claims settle, and this is consistent with our experience as well. When you engage our firm to represent you, we will focus our efforts on negotiating a favorable settlement. However, we will also keep open the possibility of taking your case to trial if necessary.
Q: Are medical malpractice claims expensive?
While there are certain costs (such as court costs and expert witness fees) involved in filing a medical malpractice claim, these costs pale in comparison to the long-term financial and non-financial consequences of a medical mistake. We cover these costs while our clients’ claims are pending, and we will only ask you to repay them if we are successful in helping you recover just compensation.
