Standing Up For Surviving Family Members

At the Law Offices of Dan Lyons & Associates, we stand up for families who have lost loved ones in fatal accidents caused by negligence and wrongdoing. Highly rated attorney Dan Lyons is a strong advocate for surviving family members in West Haven and throughout Connecticut.

To bring a civil wrongful death lawsuit in Connecticut, you must act within two years of the date of death and no more than five years from the date of the negligent act.

Negligence Versus Deliberate Acts Or Reckless Disregard

Nothing can ever make up for the death of a loved one — no legal action, no amount of financial compensation. However, pursuing a wrongful death claim can help your family obtain the financial resources you need to make it through this difficult time.

Connecticut wrongful death laws allow surviving family members to pursue financial damages for:

  • Reasonable cost of all bills for medical treatment
  • Conscious pain and suffering of the decedent
  • Funeral and burial expenses

If a driver's deliberate acts or reckless disregard for the law resulted in your loved one's death, double or triple damages may be available. We tirelessly pursue every angle of injury cases and explore all avenues of compensation to protect our clients' rights. We can help you determine if such punitive damages apply in your case.

We handle all types of personal injury claims for clients in West Haven, Milford, New Haven and throughout Connecticut.
