Requirements to Bring a Wrongful Death Claim

Although you should discuss your eligibility to bring a wrongful death claim with a lawyer before taking action, there are some general requirements that have to be met.

Identifying factors of a wrongful death claim:

  • An incident resulted in the death of a loved one
  • The incident was cause fully or partially by another person’s negligence
  • The death resulted in loss to you or your family members
  • The death of your loved one led to financial damages

How Long Do I Have to Bring a Wrongful Death Claim?

In Connecticut, you have two years from the date of your loved one’s death to file a claim. The sooner you speak with a lawyer, the better chance you have at pursuing maximum compensation.

What Are Punitive Damages?

In cases involving especially reckless or negligent actions by an individual or a company, the court may award punitive damages to you and your family. These are essentially fines imposed upon the guilty party to deter similar future behavior.
