Worldwide, more than 2,000 children and teenagers die from an accident related injury which could have been prevented. The World Health Organization further reports that the five leading causes of accidental injuries include: road traffic injuries; drownings; burns; falls; and poisoning. The great tragedy is that many of these accidental deaths could have been prevented had the proper safety or precautionary measures been taken. So what should you do if a loved one has died as the result of the fault of another.
First, it is imperative that you contact an experienced wrongful death lawyer at the earliest possible moment. Many times there are evidentiary matters that must be investigated before circumstances change, repairs are made or witnesses forget what happened. It might be necessary to employ certain experts to help prove liability, causation or damages. You might unknowingly say or do something that could severely undermine your case and might create a situation that cannot be changed or explained away. At the very least, you need to have your rights explained to you so you know what to do, and as importantly, what not to do.
People sometimes think they cannot afford to go out and hire a highly regarded wrongful death lawyer and they do not have the money that will be needed to hire experts and properly develop their case. Our firm handles these cases on a contingency fee basis which means we retain a percentage of the recovery pursuant to CT law. If there is no recovery then you would owe us no legal fees. Additionally, we advance all costs for the development of your case and again if there is no recovery then you would not have to repay the costs which are only owed to us if there is a recovery. We take all the financial risk in handling your case.
