In the beginning of 2018, two Connecticut families were forced to endure the loss of two beloved women who were killed in a fatal hit-and-run crash. The man responsible for those tragic deaths recently appeared in court for the sentencing phase of his criminal trial. Even though a motorist may be held criminally responsible for these types of crashes, families may wish to seek their own justice and closure through the filing of a wrongful death lawsuit.
One of the most devastating events that can befall families is losing a loved one in a sudden and tragic manner.

The wrongful death civil lawsuit seeks recovery of monetary damages related to the fatal wreck that occurred in 2017.
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.

In the aftermath of a tragic fatal accident, families are often left with feelings of devastating loss. Along with the emotional pain of losing a cherished loved one, there may be the added burden of significant financial damages that accrue in the weeks and months after a fatal crash.
