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

"Venue" is a legal term and refers to where a lawsuit should be filed; if a lawsuit is filed in the wrong 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 a motor vehicle accident involving an auto, bicycle, car, motorcycle, or truck depends on one of three criteria: (1) where the injured party resides; (2) where the negligent, drunk, or reckless driver resides; or (3) where the collision or accident occurred if neither party resides in Connecticut.

According to Connecticut General Statutes Section 51-344 (13), the courthouse for the Judicial District of Windham (located at 15 Church Street, Putnam, Connecticut 06260) would be the proper venue for a Connecticut motor vehicle accident claim if any of the above criteria are met for any of these Connecticut towns: Ashford, Brooklyn, Canterbury, Chaplin, Eastford, Hampton, Killingly, Plainfield, Pomfret, Putnam, Scotland, Sterling, Thompson, Windham and Woodstock.
