No one is ever prepared for that phone call that informs them that a loved one has died suddenly in a motor vehicle accident. But, the fact is that serious motor vehicle accidents are quite common in Connecticut and the throughout the rest of the country, resulting in fatalities that can change a family forever. When the death in question was the result of negligent or reckless conduct from another driver, there may be legal options to help the surviving family members to recover financial compensation to help them as they attempt to move on with life.
Wrongful death cases in Connecticut can be difficult, both in legal terms and emotionally. At our law firm, we understand the stress and grief that surviving family members go through in wrongful death cases, and we do our best to help them get through the legal steps by taking the right approach for each individual case.
Some wrongful death cases can be settled through direct negotiations with the other side. Others may be settled during mediation or through the use of some other form of alternative dispute resolution. But, the reality is that some of these cases do proceed all the way to trial. No matter what the circumstances in your case, we work with our clients in Connecticut to find the right path forward.
