Loss of consortium in Connecticut

A common misconception amongst many in New Haven might be that wrongful death lawsuits are simply meant to punish the parties believed to be responsible for causing the untimely deaths of others. On the contrary, most who seek such action are simply trying to deal with the expenses associated with their losses the best that they can. Typically, the greatest of those losses are not monetary, but rather the emotional pain felt by being deprived of their family member or friend's companionship. The legal term for this deprivation is "loss of consortium." 

What is traumatic brain injury?

Whether due to a car accident or as a result of poorly maintained property, negligent behavior can cause a great deal of harm.

The Mayo Clinic explains the basics of TBI, including symptoms and prevention.

Wrongful death vs. survival action

If you have had a loved one die recently due to the negligent actions of another, then you might justly be considering a wrongful death lawsuit (filed by either yourself or the decedent's personal representative). However, what if you had already initiated action following an incident that injured your loved one, and then he or she suddenly succumbs to his or her injuries? Many have come to us here at The Law Office of George H. Romania, LLC thinking that in since such action did not begin as a wrongful death lawsuit, their cause of action then dies with their family members. We can tell with certainty that is not the case.
