Wrongful death is “the taking of the life of an individual from the wilful or negligent act of another person.” When someone dies because of the wrongful conduct of another, then the decedent’s heirs and other beneficiaries may file a wrongful death action with the help of a CT wrongful death attorney.
Some common examples of situations that result in wrongful death actions include:
In wrongful death cases, the surviving family of the deceased are entitled to compensation for damages and suffering. The nominee or family member of the deceased or the person appointed by the nominee can bring the case to court to claim compensation.
The compensation can help ease the financial and emotional burdens following such a traumatic loss. Compensation may cover medical expenses, funeral expenses, lost income, pain and suffering, loss of companionship and any other costs associated with the wrongful death of their loved one.
Connecticut’s Wrongful Death Statute, Section 52-555 of the Connecticut General Statue requires that the executor or administrator bring the suit within two years of the date of death, and five years of the date of the injury.
There are different factors that are needed to be considered while determining the amount of compensation.
Connecticut has a law which is used to bring a claim for wrongful death. It’s called the Wrongful Death statute.
