Connecticut Worker’s Comp and Wrongful Death: What To Do When Tragedy Happens On The Job
Several weeks ago a Harwinton man was hit on the head by a tree while working for a tree company. This 33 year-old man succumbed to his injuries.
OSHA (Occupational Safety and Health Administration) is investigating this work-site accident.
In the state of Connecticut, a wrongful death claim can be filed against an individual or a company whose reckless, negligent or intentional behavior contributed to the death of an individual. Because the injured person is not able to open their own worker’s compensation claim, another individual must do so on their behalf. Our team of experienced attorneys can help families bring the case to court on behalf of the deceased.
The deceased’s estate can file suit seeking damages for the following:
- Cost of funeral expenses
- Cost of medical expenses
- Lost wages over the deceased’s lifetime
