Does Connecticut remarriage end wrongful death survivor damages?

In Connecticut, surviving family members of a decedent killed by another person's negligent or reckless conduct can seek just damages in a wrongful death lawsuit. Compensation is awarded to the decedent's estate for distribution to family members. These damages include reasonable and necessary medical and funeral expenses, compensation for ending the decedent's capacity to enjoy life, payment for conscious pain and suffering, compensation for the death itself and payment of the value of the decedent's lost earning capacity minus deductions for living expenses and consideration that a present cash payment will be made.
