New Haven Wrongful Death Lawyers
Wrongful death actions in Connecticut are filed on behalf of a deceased person’s estate. These actions are intended to compensate the estate for the losses the deceased person suffered as the result of a negligent person’s behavior. These can be extremely difficult cases to prove since the victim is not able to testify on their own behalf.
The idea of pursuing legal action in the aftermath of a loved one’s death can be burdensome for the victim’s family. A reliable attorney can help you through the entire process and work to ensure that your loved one’s estate is fully compensated. We are personal injury attorneys at the Law Office of Carl A. Secola, Jr., LLC, and we represent Connecticut families who are suffering because of a loved one’s death.
Helping You Through A Difficult Process
We understand what a difficult time this is for you, and you have our pledge that we will do everything in our power to obtain the best possible outcome for your loved one’s estate in the most pain-free manner for your family. We do not expect that any amount of money will ever compensate for your loved one’s death. However, monetary damages are the only form of justice available in our current legal system. It is our hope that any damages that you receive will provide you with adequate financial support as you move into this new phase of your life.
Among the damages that can be sought on behalf of your loved one’s estate are the following:
- Medical, funeral and burial expenses
- Loss of earning capacity and loss of future income
- Loss of future retirement
- Your loved one’s loss of enjoyment of life
- Your loved one’s pain and suffering prior to death
Depending on the circumstances of the fatal accident that took your loved one’s life, it may be possible to seek punitive damages against the responsible party. These damages are intended to punish the negligent party for reckless behavior that led to the death of another person. We will conduct a thorough evaluation of your case and give you an honest assessment of the potential for punitive damages in your case.
