Medical malpractice claims

While Connecticut does not have a general medical malpractice act, medical malpractice law in the state requires attorneys to investigate claims to determine if medical negligence has occurred before pursuing a case in court. This includes obtaining a written and signed opinion by a health service provider who works in the same or a similar field as the physician whose negligence you claim caused your injuries. This health service provider reviews and evaluates your claim to determine if there is evidence of negligence on the part of your physician. While not every complication resulting from a medical procedure is the result of medical malpractice, we thoroughly investigate the circumstances of your claim to determine if you have a case against your doctor or other healthcare provider.

Common examples of medical malpractice in Connecticut

  • Failure to diagnose disease
  • Misread X-rays, CT scans, MRIs or mammograms
  • Failure to identify the signs of a heart attack or stroke
  • Failure to provide the recommended follow-up care
  • Abusing or neglecting a patient (including in nursing homes)
  • Misdiagnosis/delayed diagnosis
  • Incorrect surgery or medical procedures performed

Do statutory time limits apply to my medical malpractice claim?

Under Connecticut medical malpractice statute of limitations law, you must initiate your claim within two years of the date on which you sustained your injury or reasonably discovered your injury. Additionally, you must initiate your lawsuit within three years of the act of medical negligence that resulted in your injury, even if you do not discover your injury until more than three years have passed. However, in some cases, physicians may have a continuing duty to warn or disclose, which can result in extending the amount of time you have to initiate your case. The Reinken Law Firm can assist you in determining how the time limits imposed by the law affect your medical malpractice claim.
