Wrongful Death Lawyers in Connecticut

Experienced & Nationally Recognized Legal Counsel

RisCassi & Davis, P.C. is often called on to help families who have lost a loved one assess whether there is a potential Connecticut wrongful death case. If you suspect that someone may have been legally responsible for the death of a loved one, you should consult an attorney as soon as possible.

Whether or not you have been appointed executor or administrator of an estate of someone who recently died by the Probate Court, you may have questions concerning a potential wrongful death claim. Our Connecticut wrongful death attorneys are often contacted first by family members or next of kin, right after a death, before the Probate Court has even appointed an executor or administrator.

When we get requests for help on these cases, we work with loved ones, executors, or administrators to gather relevant records and make an assessment as to whether there is a case that we would be willing to pursue.

Just as there are statutes of limitations for personal injury claims in Connecticut, there is also a statute of limitations for wrongful death claims, which is set forth in Section 52-555 of the General Statutes. The current limitations period requires that any wrongful death claim be brought within 2 years of the date of death.

Certain claims, including, but not limited to, those against the State of Connecticut, municipalities, and other defendants, and certain statutory causes of action, including dram shop claims against liquor sellers, may have shorter limitations or notice periods.

Not all of the complexities can be covered here. The best advice is to consult a reputable wrongful death lawyer in Connecticut as soon as practicable if you suspect that the decedent’s death was preventable. Call us at (860) 245-2412 to begin.
