It is unfortunate that families in Connecticut and throughout the country can be devastated by the untimely death of a loved one due to another party’s negligence. In many cases, it was a car accident caused by a drunk driver or a driver who was distracted. In other cases, medical malpractice may result in the loved one’s death. In whatever the manner in which the accidents are caused, the fact is that these types of fatal incidents are quite frequent in America.
Fortunately, the family members who are left in the wake of these tragic incidents may have the opportunity to attempt to secure financial compensation from the negligent party by pursuing a wrongful death lawsuit. Anyone who is familiar with previous posts here knows that in these types of lawsuits the family members can seek compensation to cover medical bills that the deceased incurred as a result of the injury, but there are other damages that could be pursued as well.
Beyond medical expenses, the wrongful death lawsuit could seek to recover wages that were lost to the family as a result of the death. The lawsuit could also seek to recover pain and suffering damages and loss of companionship damages as well. Whatever the scenario, it is important for the family members who are left behind to explore their options for seeking the full amount of damages that they could potentially recover.
