For nearly 30 years, we have successfully helped our clients in a variety of wrongful death cases, including car accidents, premises liability, and defective products.

Establishing a Wrongful Death Claim

In Connecticut, a wrongful death claim must be filed by the executor or administrator of the deceased person’s estate. If the deceased individual died without creating an estate plan or will which appointed an executor or administration, or if the appointed executor or administration can’t uphold their duty, the court may select an executor or administrator.

The executor or administrator must file the lawsuit within two years of the date of the decedent’s death. When the wrongful death lawsuit is successful in court, damages are paid to the estate of the deceased person.

Damages may be compensated for the following loss categories:

  • Funeral and burial expenses
  • Medical, hospital , and nursing expenses associated to the deceased person’s final injury or illness
  • Damages for loss of income capacity
  • Damages for loss of the capacity to enjoy life’s activities
  • Damages for pain and suffering experienced by the deceased prior to death
