Bringing A Wrongful Death Claim

A loved one’s death is never an easy thing for survivors to handle. Needless deaths, however — ones caused by the recklessness, indifference or negligence of others — are the hardest deaths to cope with. These deaths often leave family members with levels of grief, anger and confusion that are overwhelming. During a difficult time like this, legal issues are among the last things that people want to be dealing with.

If you have lost a loved one as the result of a job-related accident or the negligence of someone else, contact an experienced attorney at the Law Offices of John J. LaCava, LLC, and let us fight to protect your family’s rights and interests.

Do You Have A Wrongful Death Claim?

Our lawyers pursue wrongful death lawsuits on behalf of accident victims throughout Fairfield County. We handle claims arising from a variety of causes, including motor vehicle accidents, construction accidents and medical malpractice.

In Connecticut, spouses may bring loss of consortium claims in conjunction with a wrongful death lawsuit, but wrongful death claims themselves can only be brought by the executor of the decedent’s estate. If successful, damages that can be recovered include medical expenses, property losses, funeral costs and the loss of expected earnings.

What Is The Key To Success In These Cases?

The key is prompt investigation.

Hiring an attorney sooner rather than later can be extremely beneficial in this regard. In addition, if your loved one left no will, it is important to get the probate process started early.

We know this is a difficult time and we are committed to providing honest communication, responsiveness, and compassionate service. We genuinely want to be helpful in any way that we can. Our goal is to make the legal process as comfortable and efficient for you as possible so that you can concentrate on other matters and leave the legal concerns to us.
