Wrongful death is a type of personal injury claim that arises from a death due to someone else’s negligence, recklessness, or intent to harm. However, unlike personal injury cases, wrongful death claims are filed by the deceased person’s estate. Wrongful death claims can recover damages for pain and suffering your loved one endured during the incident before they died, loss of future income, funeral and burial expenses, all medical bills associated with the accident, and loss of companionship.
Accidents that regularly cause wrongful deaths in Danbury include:
All wrongful death accidents share one thing in common: negligence. You might have a wrongful death case if someone’s negligence or recklessness led to your loved one’s fatal injury. It doesn’t matter if the rs meant to kill the victim or not. If the victim ultimately passed away from the negligence-related injury, the at-fault party will be financially responsible. If someone’s misconduct killed your loved one, you have grounds to file a claim. Discuss your particular wrongful death case in more detail with our Danbury attorneys today.
Wrongful death cases are complicated and typically have an enormous impact on families in Danbury. For these two reasons, you should absolutely speak with an attorney if you suspect your loved one’s death was a result of negligence. There are important filing deadlines and a significant investment required to properly build a case and prove the death was wrongful.
Additionally, there is just so much at stake in these cases. A wrongful death robs a family of something irreplaceable: a loved one’s life. You will never get another chance to achieve justice for what happened and a wrongful death claim is likely the best recourse to make sure that you aren’t left with medical and funeral debts as a result. If the negligent action was particularly wanton or egregious, a wrongful death claim may help prevent someone else from being killed as a result of the same behavior. This is particularly true when a defective product or institutional negligence causes someone’s death.
Wrongful death is the most serious possible outcome of negligence. If your family lost a loved one in a preventable accident because of someone else’s negligence or intentional wrongdoing, we can help.
