Wrongful Death


Losing a loved one suddenly due to the carelessness of another is overwhelming. No family should have to go through such a devastating loss, and when such losses do happen, there’s an immediate need for accountability and closure.

We understand what you’re going through, and we believe you should have an experienced attorney assisting you through your legal concerns. We would be honored to meet with you for a confidential remote consultation and provide candid answers about your family’s legal options.


A wrongful death claim is brought on behalf of a person who has died as a result of someone else’s carelessness. Some unfortunately common scenarios where negligence has led to the death of the injured person include:

  • Car accidents
  • Truck accidents
  • Motorcycle accidents
  • Boating accidents
  • Dangerous products
  • Negligent security
  • Nursing home negligence
  • Medical malpractice

A wrongful death claim is a civil claim that is distinct from any criminal charges against the person who caused the death that might be brought by the State of Connecticut.

Both the economic damage, such as funeral expenses, medical bills related to the death, and lost wages of the deceased, and non-economic damages such as the deceased’s lost ability to enjoy life, can be recovered in a wrongful death action. In Connecticut, there is also a claim for loss of consortium for the surviving spouse, which includes the loss of care and companionship.

A successfully resolved wrongful death claim provides accountability and a degree of closure. Moreover, accountability can help to protect other families from suffering similar losses in the future.
