Hold Hospitals Accountable For Medical Malpractice
Medical malpractice occurs when a medical professional’s conduct falls below the acceptable standard of care through action or lack of action. Doctors, physician assistants, chiropractors, physical therapists, dentists, nurses, nurse practitioners, nurse midwives and other medical professionals have legal obligations to act according to professional standards. Even a small mistake on their part can spell a catastrophic injury for you or a loved one.
Falling short of the applicable standard of care may result in patients suffering serious injuries or dying from illnesses that should have been diagnosed earlier. At Sheffy, Mazzaccaro, DePaolo & DeNigris, LLP, we hold negligent health care providers accountable for their mistakes. No patient deserves to leave a medical facility worse off than they entered it. Our team is here to fight for your rights and ensure that you receive the compensation you deserve.

How Long Do I Have To File A Claim?
The statute of limitations to file a medical malpractice claim in Connecticut is two years. If an injury is not discovered right away, an injury victim has two years from the date of discovery or the date the injury should have been reasonably discovered.
