How Do You Know If You Have Grounds for a Wrongful Death Case?
A wrongful death suit can be filed for any number of causes where someone else's carelessness led to an unexpected death. This might have involved a car accident, medical malpractice, mistreatment, abandonment by a caregiver, failure to maintain equipment that contributed to personal injury, defective or dangerous products, diseases traced back to a known and specific cause, or any other case where someone's misconduct cost your loved one his or her life.
Who can file a wrongful death claim? In Connecticut, this type of claim must be filed by the executor or administrator of the deceased person’s estate. What if your loved one died without making an estate plan? Then the court may appoint an executor.
In Harford, CT, executors are usually immediate family members—the spouse, parents, or children of the deceased. In exceptional cases, siblings and other relatives may be able to file a claim.
If you are seeking justice for a loved one's wrongful death, you must know that you bear the burden of proving that the other party was negligent or even reckless leading to loss of life. Wrongful death cases can be challenging to prove. That's why you need a legal team that knows personal injury and wrongful death cases inside and out.
The wrongful death attorneys at Gould Injury Law can work with you to see if you have solid grounds to pursue a wrongful death claim. We understand that compensated damages won't return your family member to you. But many people find that they get a sense of closure when guilty parties are held to account and the costs incurred from their relative's passing are covered.
Please ask yourself, 'Would compensation for the neglect that caused my loved one's death help my family navigate the grieving process? Would getting help with funeral expenses, medical bills, and other costs help reduce our anxiety, giving us time and energy to heal?'
If you answered yes to the above questions, we strongly believe we can help you. Let Gould Injury Law work with you to build the strongest case possible and get a favorable outcome that will help your family–fast!
How Long Do You Have to File a Wrongful Death Lawsuit in Hartford, CT?

What Kind of Compensation Can You Expect?
Wrongful death cases hinge on being able to clearly prove that another person's negligence or recklessness led to events resulting in the passing of your family member. By helping you prove that your deceased loved one was the victim of someone else's neglect, you may be able to recover damages for the following:
- Pain and suffering
- Loss of income, both present and future
- Loss of support that the deceased would have provided
- Loss of enjoyment of life activities
- Medical bills incurred prior to the death
- Funeral expenses
- Loss of companionship
The above list is not meant to be exhaustive. And how could it be? There are countless costs related to the loss of your loved one that could never be measured in dollars and cents. While monetary restitution cannot resolve your emotional loss, it is worth your time and energy to recover these damages. Why?
Many people who have suffered a similar loss are surprised at the financial burden incurred upon the death of a loved one. These bills should be the least of your worries. Instead, leave the work to recover these costs to a lawyer and afford your family time to focus on healing. Take a look at some of our recent case results to get an idea of what kind of compensation you could expect from your wrongful death claim.
To maximize your compensation, you need a legal team that knows Connecticut state law. For example, Connecticut General Statutes declare that if your loved one was the victim of a car accident in Hartford, double or triple damages could be awarded if the other driver deliberately violated traffic laws.
Hartford has been nicknamed the “Insurance Capital of the World,” and with good reason. The many aggressive insurance companies in the area will try to pressure you into settling out of court.
