Disarray often follows the death of a loved one and the painstaking sorrow is often exacerbated with heightened financial and medical expenses. Learning that the death of a loved one was caused by someone else’s negligence can be difficult to cope with. Anger and profound sadness often take charge in considering whether to pursue legal action. Although holding the responsible party accountable for the death of your loved one will not bring them back, you can have some relief knowing justice was pursued. If you are seeking legal representation to defend the interests of a deceased loved one please do not hesitate to contact the Law Offices of James A. Welcome.

What Is a Wrongful Death?

Under Section 52-555 of Connecticut state law, Injuries resulting in death that were caused by another’s negligent or reckless actions are considered to be a wrongful death. Connecticut law permits the deceased heirs or representatives to file a wrongful death claim against the liable party. Wrongful death claims are time-sensitive and require experienced legal representation due to their complex nature in establishing the extent of liability. The seriousness of the circumstances and ultimately the defense by the at-fault party requires the plaintiff to effectively prove that the defendant acted negligently. You may be entitled to compensation for expenditures that were usually paid for by the deceased loved one. They may include funeral costs, medical costs, and pain and suffering costs. 

In most cases, your Connecticut wrongful death claim has a statute of limitations of two years from the date of your loved one’s death. You are encouraged to reach out to our law firm as soon as possible to get started with filing a wrongful death suit. Deferring action can result in the statute of limitations being exceeded. To find out if you have a basis for a Connecticut wrongful death lawsuit, call Attorney James A. Welcome
