Compensation for Wrongful Death in Connecticut

In wrongful death cases, the surviving family of the deceased are entitled to compensation for damages and suffering. The nominee or family member of the deceased or the person appointed by the nominee can bring the case to court to claim compensation.

The compensation can help ease the financial and emotional burdens following such a traumatic loss. Compensation may cover medical expenses, funeral expenses, lost income, pain and suffering, loss of companionship and any other costs associated with the wrongful death of their loved one.

Connecticut’s Wrongful Death Statute, Section 52-555 of the Connecticut General Statue requires that the executor or administrator bring the suit within two years of the date of death, and five years of the date of the injury.

There are different factors that are needed to be considered while determining the amount of compensation.

  • Medical expenses for the victim before he/she died
  • Loss of income earned by the deceased
  • Loss of benefits such as medical benefits, pension and other entitlements from work
  • Loss of companionship, sorrow and mental anguish of the spouse and family
  • Compensation for any property damage that occurred in the accident
  • Funeral and memorial expenses
