Who Can File a Wrongful Death Claim in Connecticut?

Although many different people can be impacted by a death, only certain people can file wrongful death claims in Connecticut. According to Connecticut law a wrongful death claim can only be filed by the administrator of the victim’s will. An administrator is a person who is named in a will as the party responsible for taking care of the testator’s final affairs. The will administrator may be responsible for filing the testator’s will, paying remaining bills, and distributing assets, and is also responsible for filing a wrongful death claim if the testator dies due to another person’s negligence.

In some wrongful death cases, the victim has died without a will. Without an appointed administrator, one will be chosen to complete the claim. If the deceased person did have a will but the administrator of the will is unable to file a claim, an administrator will need to be appointed by a court for the purpose of resolving the claim. The court may appoint an attorney, family member, or another party to complete a wrongful death claim.

Who Receives the Damages From a Wrongful Death Claim?

Wrongful death claims provide compensation to the people whose lives have been most significantly impacted by the loss of the victim. In Connecticut, the damages recovered through a wrongful death claim are distributed through the deceased person’s estate. Damages may be used to pay for remaining medical bills and funeral expenses, or will be distributed to the victim’s family.

Families of wrongful death victims can seek compensation for:

  • Medical bills including ambulance and hospital fees
  • Funeral costs
  • Lost past and future wages
  • Pain and suffering
