Losing a loved one through natural causes is never easy. However, losing a loved one through a preventable accident that was caused by negligence makes the emotional pain and loss that much worse. Though nothing can restore the one who died, a successfully filed wrongful death civil suit within Connecticut’s civil justice system may help right at least one wrong.
There are so many things that can go wrong during the course of an ordinary day. The driver who runs a red light, a doctor who makes a critical error during surgery, or even a poorly secured load on a truck can result in the sudden loss of your beloved family member. Though we make every effort to make sure that all of our choices in life will ensure the safety and well-being of our family members, not everyone will take those same measures. So, what happens when a loved one dies through the fault of someone’s actions?
In the first few days after your loss, you are likely numb and uncertain about decisions regarding the future. Once the shock wears off, you will likely endure an extended period of grief that may be compounded by the unexpected burden of expenses that are related to the untimely passing of your loved one. The loss of wages or the unexpected costs of final expenses and possible medical bills may leave you financially strapped and unsure of how to keep your household running.
