People in Connecticut who have been the victims of medical malpractice usually can’t believe that this type of negligence happened to them. We all read about instances of medical malpractice in the news, but most of the time it can seem like a distant problem that doesn’t affect us. When it does, sometimes victims don’t even know where to start with a medical malpractice claim.

First and foremost, it can be an important first step to reach out to the medical professional whom you believe was responsible for the medical malpractice issue. In doing so, your goal is to gather information about what went wrong and how the medical malpractice could have been prevented.

Next, it is crucial to know the deadlines and timeframes for filing a lawsuit. Victims don’t have forever to pursue a medical malpractice claim – they must do so within a certain timeframe designated by Connecticut law. The deadline can vary depending on the type of medical malpractice involved, and when the victim found out that there was a potential issue with the treatment they received.

Lastly, you’ll want to make sure that you get a comprehensive assessment of the validity of your claim before you take legal action. For most victims, this means reaching out to an attorney who handles medical malpractice cases, and who can advise victims about the potential for recovering financial compensation in a lawsuit. When victims of medical malpractice in Connecticut follow these initial steps, the potential to recover compensation may be higher.
