Who Can File A Wrongful Death Claim?

A wrongful death claim in Connecticut is similar to a personal injury claim. Namely, if an individual has died as a result of another person's carelessness, recklessness or intent, then a legal civil action can be taken. That is, the deceased's family can file a claim seeking monetary damages.

The lawyers at Chinigo, Leone & Maruzo, LLP, have assisted residents of Norwich in their wrongful death matters for more than 25 years. We understand that no amount of compensation can replace the loss of a loved one. Our aim is to help our clients alleviate the financial burdens imposed on them as a result of their relation's sudden, unexpected — and unfair — death.

How A Knowledgeable Lawyer Can Help

Families can seek damages for a number of concerns in a wrongful death suit, including:

  • Funeral and burial costs
  • End-of-life medical and hospital fees
  • Compensation for end-of-life pain and suffering
  • Compensation for the deceased's lost earning capacity

Further damages can be sought in cases where the death resulted from a deliberate violation of traffic laws.

What our firm does is collaborate with all parties involved. We confer often with the deceased's family, so that we can best serve them. We also negotiate with insurance companies and their local counsel, in order to obtain the most favorable claim. If a settlement cannot be reached, we will always be prepared to try a matter in court.
