When is Ansonia - Milford the Proper Venue for a Death or Injury Claim Arising from a Connecticut Auto, Bicycle, Car, Motorcycle, or Truck Accident?

"Venue" refers to where your Connecticut auto, bicycle, car, motorcycle, or truck accident lawsuit should be filed. If a motor vehicle accident lawsuit is filed in the wrong Connecticut courthouse, it could be transferred or dismissed.

The proper venue for a Connecticut lawsuit seeking money damages for serious injuries or wrongful death arising from an accident involving an auto, bicycle, car, motorcycle, or truck depends on one of three criteria: (1) where the injured party resides; (2) where the drunk, negligent, reckless, or speeding driver resides; or (3) where the collision or accident occurred if neither party resides in Connecticut.

According to Connecticut General Statutes Section 51-344 (1), the courthouse for the Judicial District of Ansonia - Milford (located at 14 West River Street, Milford 06460) would be the proper venue for your motor vehicle accident claim if the above criteria are met for any of the following Connecticut towns: Ansonia, Beacon Falls, Derby, Milford, Orange, Oxford, Seymour, Shelton and West Haven.

In addition, even though the following towns are not located in the Judicial District of Ansonia-Milford, we can choose to file a motor vehicle claim there if you or the defendant driver live in any of the following Connecticut towns: Bethany, Milford, West Haven, Woodbury; or Southbury. See Connecticut General Statutes Section 51-345 (c) and (d).
