Have you lost a loved one? Was their death caused by an accident? Oftentimes, these accidents are avoidable, and many people do not know where to turn for help to pursue justice for the wrongs that have been done to them and their family. 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.
Certain parties are exempt from wrongful death cases, such as:
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.
