There is Justice After the Death of a Loved One
Nothing can replace the loss of a loved one. Life will never be the same. When a member of your family is killed in an accident, choosing the right wrongful death attorney is vital. Our attorneys help Connecticut families and survivors file their claim, find justice, and hold negligent parties accountable for the consequences of their actions.
Fighting for Survivors Under Connecticut Law
In Connecticut, a wrongful death claim can be filed against a person or company whose negligent, reckless, or intentional behavior may have caused the death of another. Because the injured person is no longer available to bring the claim, another party must step in to bring the case to court on behalf of the deceased person's survivors and estate.
With the help of our attorneys, you can bring that case on behalf of a loved one.
