What is Wrongful Death? What Are its Most Common Causes?.

In Connecticut, a wrongful death claim is defined as a claim “for injuries resulting in death”. More specifically, a wrongful death occurs when a person or company acts in a negligent or reckless manner and that behavior causes the death of another person.

Common causes of wrongful death in Bridgeport include:

 Damages Available in Wrongful Death Cases

Damages in a wrongful death case in Connecticut are paid directly to the estate of the decedent.  Because the victim is no longer able to bring the claim themselves, wrongful death claims are brought to court on behalf of the decedent’s survivors or estate.  In Connecticut, the claim must be filed by the executor or administrator of the decedent’s estate.

Damages available include:

  • Medical bills related to the injury
  • Funeral and burial expenses
  • Lost earning capacity
  • Damages for conscious pain and suffering endured before the death
  • Compensation for the loss of capacity to enjoy life’s activities had they lived

Don’t Wait – Time is Running Out

In Connecticut, a law called a statute of limitations puts a deadline on your family’s right to file a wrongful death claim. The filing party must bring the case to the county courts within at least two years of the deceased person’s death. Waiting longer than two years from the date of death could lead to the courts automatically dismissing your wrongful death case. This is why it’s important to talk to a lawyer right away about a potential case.
