At Carlson & Dumeer, LLC, we understand that this time in your life is difficult, and you deserve outstanding representation to assist you in obtaining the compensation that you deserve. At our firm, the Hartford injury attorneys work hard to ensure that justice is served to wrongdoers and that our clients receive favorable outcomes or settlements to their cases.

What is Wrongful Death?

Wrongful death is a legal term used to describe a situation where a person dies due to the negligence, recklessness, or intentional actions of another party. This can occur in various contexts, such as car accidents, medical malpractice, workplace accidents, criminal behavior, and more. When a wrongful death occurs, the surviving family members or the estate of the deceased person may have the right to file a wrongful death lawsuit against the responsible party or parties.

Wrongful death lawsuits typically seek to recover damages for the losses suffered by the surviving family members as a result of the death. These damages can include compensation for medical expenses, funeral and burial costs, loss of income and financial support, loss of companionship and guidance, and possibly punitive damages in cases of extreme negligence or intentional harm.

Laws regarding wrongful death claims vary by jurisdiction, so it's important to consult with a knowledgeable attorney who can provide guidance based on the specific laws applicable to your situation.

Certain parties are exempt from wrongful death cases, such as:

  • Hospitals
  • EMTs
  • Police
  • Firefighters

In the state of Connecticut, Section 52-555 of the Connecticut General Statutes states that you only have two years from the time of your loved one's death to file a wrongful death lawsuit. If a loved one passed because of a car accident, then the negligent driver may be held liable for the death. 

Land or property owners who failed to properly secure a pool or body of water may be held responsible for a drowning death. Almost any accident that has been determined to be caused by negligence and has resulted in the death of a person can be grounds for filing a lawsuit.
