Medical Malpractice Claims Involving Children

My child had surgery and did not get the result I was expecting. How much time do I have to bring a malpractice case for injury to my child?

In Connecticut Medical Malpractice cases, you have two years from the date of the injury to bring a claim. There are few exceptions, and generally, there are no exceptions for children, even those injured at birth. This allows very little time to collect medical records and get the case properly evaluated so it is important to contact us immediately if you believe you have a malpractice case.

The Connecticut Personal Injury Lawyers with Carter Mario Law Firm believe that doctors and medical staff have a responsibility to protect the well-being of patients. Failure to do so could be considered negligent, and anyone who has suffered because of such a mistake is encouraged by the firm to explore their legal rights.
