Medical Malpractice in Connecticut

If you've been injured or a loved one was killed while in a doctor's care, you may be able to sue the doctor, hospital or medical provider. A Connecticut medical malpractice attorney can explain the specific requirements for winning a medical malpractice lawsuit and help determine whether you have a viable lawsuit.

How Much Do Medical Malpractice Lawyers Cost?

Most Connecticut medical malpractice attorneys charge their clients what is known as a contingency fee.

Lawyers who are paid on contingency charge no up-front fees. Instead, the lawyer receives a percentage of any money received through a settlement or court award.

The advantage of hiring a medical malpractice lawyer on contingency is that it costs you nothing out of pocket and you pay nothing if your lawsuit is unsuccessful. The downside of contingency fees is that you may have trouble finding an attorney to take your case if it's weak or not worth much money.

Find & Hire a Connecticut Medical Malpractice Attorney

Under Connecticut law, you have a limited period of time in which to initiate a medical malpractice claim. Because lawsuits take time to prepare, you should hire a lawyer as soon as possible after your injury.
