Lawyers Helping Families Of Wrongful Death Victims

Losing a loved one can be life-shattering, especially when his or her death was a direct result of someone's negligent and careless acts. Since 1993, our team of compassionate legal professionals at the Law Offices of James L. O'Rourke has helped the surviving family members of deadly accident victims find closure after the death of their loved ones by pursuing purposeful wrongful death claims.

Caring Representation In Your Time Of Need

We understand what a difficult time this is for you and your family, which is why our Bridgeport wrongful death attorneys are going to help you take the legal steps you need to efficiently and effectively pursue justice for your loved one.

We believe in holding the responsible parties accountable for the actions that have caused irreversible damage to our clients.

While our Connecticut lawyers understand that no amount of compensation can ever erase the pain you are feeling after losing your loved one, it can help to ease the financial burdens associated with his or her death. Our founding attorney James L. O'Rourke, along with Margaret C. DiCicco, strives to maximize recovery for our clients for:

  • Hospital and medical bills
  • Lost income
  • Future lost wages
  • Funeral expenses
  • Other damages

At the Law Offices of James L. O'Rourke, we make the physical health and mental well-being of our clients our No.1 priority. While we work to achieve compensation for you, we will also help you and your family find resources you need to move forward as best you can.
