Wrongful death actions are meant to compensate surviving heirs, including spouses, children, parents, and other dependents, for their losses resulting from the death of a family member or provider. These losses may include:

  • Medical and funeral expenses
  • Loss of anticipated earnings
  • Loss of medical benefits
  • Loss of pension or retirement benefits
  • Loss of household support
  • Pain and suffering
  • Loss of companionship

If you have lost a family member due to the negligence, recklessness, or wrongdoing of another, it is important to retain legal representation as soon as possible. Connecticut law limits the amount of time you have to file a claim, and valuable evidence may be lost if an attorney is not actively working on your case. We can help you handle the legal issues surrounding your loss, while you focus on your emotional recovery.
