Hartford Personal Injury Lawyer

Representing Injured Individuals Since 1978

David A. Zipfel & Associates, LLC is a dedicated personal injury firm located in East Hartford (off Route 84) and Enfield (on Route 5) serving injured accident victims. A personal injury caused by an unexpected accident can reduce a person's abilities and may even prevent them from returning to work.

An injured accident victim may also face financial stress while trying to pay for repairs and medical care. Anyone injured by someone else's negligence should not be held accountable for the damages. They should seek the legal help of a Hartford personal injury lawyer.

How Long Do I Have to File a Personal Injury Claim in Connecticut?

According to General Statutes of Connecticut section 52-584, the statute of limitations for personal injury cases in the state of Connecticut is two years. The statute of limitations is a law set by each state that limits how long injury victims have to file a personal injury claim.

More specifically, this law means you have two years from the date your injury occurred to file your claim, or you will lose your right to file along with the right to pursue compensation, no matter how severe your injuries are. While rare, it’s important to note that there are exceptions that can change this two-year time limit. The most notable exceptions include:

  • If the alleged negligent party leaves the state before the lawsuit can be filed, the time they are away will usually not be counted in the two-year time period. 
  • The two-year time period may be extended if the negligent party took steps to intentionally avoid a lawsuit by concealing their identity.

The statute of limitations has a big impact on the success of your case so it’s important to speak to a skilled attorney about the specifics of your case as soon as you can. The team at David A. Zipfel & Associates, LLC offers free, no-obligation consultations so you have nothing to lose by contacting our firm today!

    "Retaining the services of Attn Britchgi was the best decision I could have made"
    The court proceedings surrounding my legal matter was one of the most anxiety provoking experiences in my life. Retaining the services of Attn Britchgi was the best decision I could have made AS I EXPERTLY REPRESENTED AND GUIDED THROUGH THE PROCESS.

    The matter dragged on for several months (years even) and she never lost her steam, she was always available, returning calls promptly and remembering my case details as if I were priority.

    Thank you Attn Britchgi...should I ever have a need, I'll have no problem saying let me call MY LAWYER!
