Connecticut Wrongful Death Attorney

Wrongful death is devastating for the ones who are left behind. Nothing could be more terrible than the needless and premature loss of a loved one caused by someone else's negligence.

In a wrongful death claim, you can seek justice for your loved one and compensation for the losses you and your family have suffered. At Naizby Law, we are serious lawyers for serious injuries, representing injured people. We will fight to obtain justice for your loved one and to ensure that you and your family receive the compensation you deserve.

What Is Wrongful Death?

Wrongful death is the death of a person resulting from someone else's wrongful actions. This may involve negligence, including careless driving, medical malpractice, defective products, or dangerous premises; or intentional acts, such as assault and battery, vehicular manslaughter, or murder. As a basis for legal action, wrongful death allows family members of the deceased victim to file a claim against the party or parties who caused the death of their loved one to recover compensation for the lost support and companionship of the deceased person.

Why File a Wrongful Death Claim?

If you have lost a loved one because of someone else's wrongdoing, no amount of recovery can ever compensate you for your loss. Filing a wrongful death claim is a way to seek justice for your loved one by holding the responsible parties accountable for the harm they have caused. It can also provide compensation to help protect your family's financial future, particularly when the loved one was a breadwinner other members of the family were depending on for support.

How Do You File a Wrongful Death Claim?

If you have lost a family member and you know or suspect that the death was caused by someone else's wrongful actions or negligence, the best thing to do is to consult with a wrongful death lawyer as soon as possible. At Naizby Law, our Connecticut personal injury lawyers can advise you as to whether you have a case and explain your options under the law.

If we represent you in a wrongful death claim, we will thoroughly investigate your loved one's death and provide dedicated and compassionate legal assistance. We are a board-certified trial law firm. We can negotiate skillfully on your behalf for a fair pretrial settlement, or fight for your rights in court if necessary.

When to File a Wrongful Death Claim in Connecticut

In the state of Connecticut, there is a time limit imposed by law on wrongful death claims known as the "statute of limitations." Under state law, no wrongful death claim can be brought more than two years after the deceased person's death, or more than five years after the act or omission complained about occurred.

It is best to take action as soon possible if you are seeking justice for someone you love who has been a wrongful death victim. Evidence must be obtained and preserved to support your case, and the sooner you begin, the better.

At Naizby Law, we understand that you are grieving for your loved one, and dealing with a lawsuit may be the last thing on your mind at this time. Let us handle the legal details of your wrongful death claim and fight for the justice and compensation you deserve, while you focus on recovering from the terrible loss you have suffered. Even if you're not from Connecticut, we can handle cases from other states when injury was done during a visit or traveling through. Call us at (866) 284-3578 to see how we can help.
