What is a Wrongful Death Lawsuit?

If a loved one has been killed due to another party’s negligent or intentional actions, surviving family members may be able to sue for compensation for their grief and financial hardship.

Filing a Claim Under Connecticut Law

Wrongful death claims in West Hartford and throughout Connecticut are controlled by statutes. The law in CT differs from others in that a wrongful death claim can’t be filed by any surviving close relative that chooses to do so. A claim can only be filed by the personal representative or executor of the decedent’s estate. The court will distribute any damages awarded in the lawsuit in accord with the terms of the will of the deceased. If there is no existing will, the court will appoint a personal representative. 

The West Hartford, CT, personal injury lawyers at Gould Injury Law have extensive experience in handling these types of claims. We have the resources needed to investigate, prove, and obtain a fair settlement on your case. We will act fast to get your family the justice you deserve as you attempt to move forward during this painful time.
