Hartford Wrongful Death Attorney
Helping You Seek Justice For Your Loss
Personal injury accidents can cause devastating pain and suffering, turning the victim's life upside down. He or she may be unable to return to their job and face financial stress or ruin. However, even this cannot compare to the loss of a loved one because of an accident caused by another person. Wrongful death has many causes, including drunk driving accidents, motorcycle accidents, and serious medical malpractice.
Anyone guilty of causing such a death should be held responsible, and should compensate the deceased person's family for any suffering, counseling and burial costs that result.

Important Information About Wrongful Death Claims
After losing someone in an accident, you are likely experiencing a great deal of grief, pain and confusion. At David A. Zipfel & Associates, LLC, a Hartford injury attorney is here for you. Filing a wrongful death claim may seem a daunting and undesirable task, but with a Hartford wrongful death attorney by your side guiding you every step of the way, you could fight for the justice your loved one deserves.
It is often easier for family members to seek justice and retribution against someone who kills a family through a personal injury claim rather than through criminal prosecution. Keep in mind that if you choose to file a personal injury claim, you are not allowed to file criminal prosecution as well.
Filing a wrongful death claim is the only course of action available for those who have lost a family member because of the actions of a company and not an individual. Claims may also be filed against the manufacturer, distributor or installer of a dangerous or faulty product that caused death.
Who Can File a Claim for Wrongful Death?
Under Connecticut law, a representative is allowed to file a claim on behalf of the survivors who suffer damage from the decedent's death. The survivors who are the "real parties in interest" may include immediate family members, life partners, financial dependents and even distant family members.
Can I Sue For Emotional Distress?
When suffering the wrongful loss of a loved one, it is common to experience lasting emotional distress due to the devastation recently gone through. Emotional distress may show itself in an inability to perform daily functions, a need for additional assistance, or a general daily hindrance caused by trauma. If you believe you are suffering because of emotional distress, take legal action with the help of our firm!
How Can I Prove Emotional Distress?
Like any claim, emotional distress must be proven to become valid. Family and/or friends may need to testify on your behalf as well as you providing proof of your emotional distress. Distress may be reflected in a lack of sleep, trouble driving, anxiety, difficulty performing daily tasks and more.
