Millions Recovered For Injured People

We help families of wrongful death victims

We all hope that our loved ones will live to an old age, and when they do pass away, that it is peaceful. Unfortunately, this is not the reality for many in Connecticut. A car accident, an act of medical malpractice or other careless or negligent acts sometimes steal a loved one away from them much too soon. Death is not easy to deal with, but it is even more difficult when your loved one died due to another person's poor choices.

When a person is killed due to the negligent acts of another, their loved ones will have a lot to cope with. There will be immediate expenses, such as medical expenses and funeral costs. However, other damages will be much more long-lasting, such as the loss of future income, loss of companionship, emotional trauma and more. These damages can be difficult to cope with, which is why some people choose to pursue a wrongful death claim.

Through a wrongful death claim, the loved ones of the deceased can pursue compensation from the at-fault party. In general, to prevail on such a claim, it must be shown that their loved one died due to the negligent or intentional acts of another and that the death caused the victim's loved ones to suffer financial damages.

At the Law Offices of James L. O'Rourke, we take a compassionate and purposeful approach to wrongful death claims. We understand just how hard it is to lose a loved one in such circumstances. Our goal is to hold the responsible party accountable for the irreversible damage they have inflicted upon our clients. Our website may be of use to those who want to know more about how we handle such claims.
