Stamford, CT Wrongful Death Attorneys

Seek Justice After the Wrongful Death of a Loved One

At the Law Offices of Piazza, Simmons & Grant, L.L.C., our Stamford Wrongful Death Lawyers are dedicated to helping the surviving families of people killed in accidents of all types. We understand that taking legal action after a death is about more than money — our goal is to help people seek justice.

Our Stamford wrongful death lawyers do this by helping clients file wrongful death lawsuits in Connecticut courts. These lawsuits hold negligent actors accountable for their actions. They call attention to the harms that caused the accident and, hopefully, prevent the same kinds of harm from happening to others in the future.

Connecticut Wrongful Death Law

In Connecticut, the law on wrongful death is not survivor-based. This means that the estate of the deceased can recover on behalf of the decedent — not just the survivors. Whether the wrongful death arises from a car accident or medical negligence, the estate can take action to hold wrongdoers accountable.

When our Stamford wrongful death lawyers pursue a wrongful death claim, it is our job to demonstrate why the deceased person’s loved ones should be compensated for a wide range of factors:

  • Pain and suffering prior to death
  • Post-mortem and funeral expenses
  • Death itself, which is in effect a “total lack of health
  • Destruction of earning capacity
  • Destruction of the capacity to carry on and enjoy life’s activities
  • Other considerations such as whether the death resulted from reckless disregard, which Connecticut law says merits the award of double or treble damages
  • Loss of affection and support
