What to do if a loved one dies in a car collision in Connecticut

To most Connecticut residents, nothing is worse than having a loved one suddenly pass away. This commonly happens in serious car crashes. Motor vehicle accidents are often caused by negligence, and when this negligence causes death, the surviving family members may be at a loss. How will they pay for medical bills or funeral expenses? Who will now financially provide for the victim's spouse and children? Fortunately, there are legal remedies available to help with these common financial worries.

A fatal accident can be caused by a variety of reasons. The at-fault driver may have been speeding or driving while intoxicated. He may have run a stop sign or been distracted by his cellphone. Weather conditions may have played a role in the crash. Whatever the circumstances, if another person caused your loved one's death, you have the legal right to pursue a wrongful death lawsuit.

A lawsuit can help bring compensation as well as closure so that the family can move on from their tragedy. The family may be able to receive compensation for medical bills, funeral expenses and lost wages, as well as emotional damages.

No two claims are alike. A family's award depends on the victim's financial contributions. Financial experts can used to determine this amount. Other experts, including attorneys, may also be of use when pursuing a lawsuit.

The loss of a loved one is never easy to deal with, especially if another party is liable for the death. Our firm is experienced with such cases, tragic as they may be, and will pursue justice diligently. If need be, we will conduct a thorough investigation of the incident, including interviews with witnesses, examining medical reports and more. Our website may provide you with more information about your legal options if your loved ones have died in head-on collisions and other fatal car crashes.
