Connecticut Statutes of Limitations

Whether it’s a county prosecutor enforcing a robbery charge or someone who was rear-ended suing over a sore neck, the legal system has time limits dictating when a case can be filed in court. These time limits are determined by state laws under “statutes of limitations” and prohibit cases from being filed after a certain amount of time. Connecticut’s statutory “clock” starts ticking when the crime has been committed, or, in civil cases, when the harm occurred or is discovered, and the length of time in which to file a case varies depending on the type of lawsuit or the nature of the crime. The links below can provide more details and resources on the statutes of limitations in Connecticut.
