Losing a loved one is probably one of the hardest things anyone has to experience in their life. To make matters worse when it is due to someone else’s negligence that causes a fatality it makes it even harder to grasp. Our office handles wrongful death claims and will help in holding the responsible party accountable, try to bring some closure to the traumatic event and prepare you for the future. In Connecticut, the law allows us to recover certain money damages as follows:
- The reasonable and necessary medical and funeral expenses.
- The value of the decedent’s lost earning capacity less deductions for (his/her) necessary living expenses taking into consideration that a present cash payment will be made.
- Compensation for the destruction of the decedent’s capacity to carry on and enjoy life’s activities in a way that (he/she) would have done had (he/she) lived.
- Compensation for the death itself.
- Pain and suffering.
There is no amount of money that can replace a loved one. We can however help provide for you and your family’s future. Do not let insurance companies dictate what you are entitled to. Let our wrongful death attorneys go to work for you and hold those responsible for the fatality accountable.
