We Help Families Of Fatal Car Accident Victims

There is nothing in life that is more painful than the loss of a loved one. That pain is compounded when the death occurs as the result of another person's recklessness.

Since 1993, the Law Offices of James L. O'Rourke has advised families who lost loved ones in fatal car accidents. Our lawyers will guide you through the legal and financial issues caused by the accident so you can concentrate on the difficult task trying to move forward with your life. With offices in Stratford, Shelton and Stamford, we represent families throughout the Greater Bridgeport area.

Let Us Help You Hold The Negligent Driver Accountable

In the aftermath of a fatal accident, the truth can get lost. Police typically hear one version of how the accident happened: the version told by the survivor. The insurance company representing the negligent driver will not try to seek out the truth. Your attorney will.

Our Bridgeport fatal car accident attorneys care about one thing: holding the negligent driver accountable so your family can recover the maximum compensation for your loss. In Connecticut, families can recover compensation for:

  • Future wages the decedent can no longer earn
  • Hospital bills and funeral expenses
  • Just damages for your loved one's conscious pain and suffering and loss of ability to enjoy life
  • Compensation for the loss of your loved one's life (such as loss of companionship or parental guidance for a child)

Connecticut law may provide double or even triple damages if the negligent party deliberately or recklessly caused your loved one's death by operating a motor vehicle in violation of state law. Examples of cases that may involve punitive damages are accidents caused by drunk drivers.
