What is a wrongful death claim?

“Wrongful death” means that the negligence or wrongful act of another led to the victim’s death. The idea behind a wrongful death lawsuit is that the wrongful death also harmed people who depended upon the deceased for financial or emotional support. It includes, for example:

  • Fatal car accidents
  • Construction injuries
  • Falls from unprotected elevations
  • Animal attacks
  • Environmental hazards
  • Medical malpractice
  • Criminal acts

New London attorneys who make a difference in your wrongful death claim

Litigating wrongful death cases presents unique challenges, most notably that the injured person, who would be the “star witness” in a personal injury case, cannot testify.

In addition, the deceased’s estate may recover damages not only for the death itself, and medical and funeral expenses, but also for “just damages,” which include loss of earning capacity, conscious pain and suffering, and the loss of enjoyment of life. Estimates of future earnings usually require the testimony of an expert witness. The lawyers at Traystman & Coric, LLC have great acumen at dealing with the financial aspects of litigation, and have a wide network of trusted experts.
