lost-income-earning-capacity-wrongful-death 2According to Connecticut law, when you file a wrongful death claim after your loved one’s passing, you are entitled to seek monetary damages for lost wages less living expenses. What does that mean?

The attorney helping you file your wrongful death claim, will help you determine how much income your loved one would have generated over his/her lifetime. From that, living expenses (rent/mortgage, transportation, health care, etc.) will be deducted from income potential.

Navigating a wrongful death claim is extremely emotional and complex. An experienced and knowledgeable attorney, like those at McEnery Price Messey & Sullivan, can help you file your claim.
