Connecticut Fatal Auto Accident Under Investigation
If your loved one is involved in a fatal Connecticut car accident there can be lots of unanswered questions and you might even be unsure as of where you would start. Like this recent car accident in New Haven, a lot of questions regarding the accident are unanswered and police are investigating.
If your loved one was involved in a fatal car accident, the lawyers at McEnery Price Messey & Sullivan will be able to help you with complexity involved in a case like this, including:
- Establishing an estate. In order to bring a suit on behalf of someone who is deceased, an estate must first be opened. We have several probate attorneys in our network to help us in getting this set up.
- Determining what happened. Whenever a Connecticut auto accident is fatal, the police are involved in investigating the case. Once fault has been established by the police, the report goes to the insurance companies and the attorneys. We often hire our own expert to determine liability.
- Send a demand letter. When your loved one passes, there are several damages to a wrongful death case of this nature. Damages can be sought for any medical expenses incurred, funeral expenses, loss of future wages, and loss of consortium (both spousal and parental).
- Negotiation for damages. An experienced lawyer, like those at McEnery Price Messey & Sullivan will negotiate with the insurance companies on behalf of the estate. We have worked on cases like this and know what to expect.
