Connecticut Attorneys Advocate for Families in Wrongful Death Claims

Getting back on your feet after the loss of your loved one

For more than a combined 65 years, our lawyers at The Pickel Law Firm, LLC, have been helping families secure financial compensation and justice after the wrongful death of their loved ones in our Connecticut communities of Stamford and Norwalk. We are sensitive to the many challenges your family faces during this difficult time and do everything we can to take the burden of bringing a claim away from you.

Recovering damages in a wrongful death lawsuit

The loss of your loved one in a car accident, truck accident, motorcycle accident, workplace injury or medical mistake can be emotionally and financially devastating. If your loved one provided income to the household, you are understandably worried about how you will make the mortgage or rent and pay the bills. Your financial security and that of your family is now in question. Our goal is to ensure that your family gets back on a solid financial footing after the tragic loss of your loved one. We aggressively pursue damages that may include:

  • Medical bills your family incurred to treat your loved one
  • Income your loved one would have earned
  • Benefits your family would have been entitled to, including Social Security, veterans benefits, health insurance and pension funds
  • Loss of inheritance you would have received
  • Funeral and burial expenses
  • Costs of household services she or he provided, including childcare, cooking, cleaning, home maintenance, landscaping and accounting
  • Loss of love, protection, guidance, moral support, companionship, affection, comfort and care
  • Your emotional anguish and grief

Recovering non-economic damages

Loss is not measured only by income. The death of an infant from a birth injury or a parent from nursing home negligence can cause severe depression for those left behind. The grieving mother may find everyday tasks extremely difficult. An adult son may feel overwhelmed with guilt that he trusted the nursing home. This suffering is very real. Although we understand that no price can erase your grief, our attorneys truly believe that the wrongdoers should be held accountable for taking your loved one’s life. We assertively fight for economic and non-economic damages to bring a sense of justice to your case.
