Wrongful Death Law
Hardman Law Personal Injury Attorneys
Death is, unfortunately, something that none of us can avoid. However, loved ones are tragically lost every day to due to negligence and recklessness that could have been avoided. If this has happened to you, and you have prematurely lost someone you love as a result of someone else’s carelessness, we want to help. We have nearly 50 years of legal experience and know that it takes to get the compensation you deserve.
Who Can File a Wrongful Death Claim?
The term, “loved ones” is abstract and needs to be more clearly defined. In Connecticut, the “personal representative” of the deceased is allowed to file a wrongful death claim, and the personal representative is most often a relative but does not necessarily have to be.
Damages To Be Recovered
We understand that it may seem vulgar to assign a monetary figure to the loss of a loved one. Relationships such as these far exceed the limits of money, but this is the only way our current court system can do its best to rectify an injustice such as losing a dear parent, child, sibling, or spouse.
The courts will often recognize the following damages and order compensation for them:
Funeral and burial costs
The deceased’s pain and suffering between injury and death
The deceased’s loss of wages, benefits, and earning capability
Grief and mental anguish of the deceased’s survivors
Loss of companionship, guidance, and consortium
Punitive damages to punish and make an example of the liable party

Unlike other criminal cases, many DUI cases are very different. More often than not, the people we represent in need of a DWI in drunk driving arrests are people who have never dealt with the criminal justice system.
People charged with driving under the influence suffer consequences far beyond just a court case. For example, many arrested for DUI find themselves scrambling to keep their job as there’s an immediate impact on their ability to commute back and forth to work, not to mention those people who drive during the workday, such as salespeople that cover a particular territory or region.
Additionally, those arrested for driving under the influence are also confronted with the Department of Motor Vehicle’s Administrative Per Se suspension and hearing process. As a result, in addition to criminal court, this is another venue (DMV) where they need to appear. This results in higher legal costs, more stress and another layer of bureaucracy.
For those that live outside the city, and need to commute to work or school, or just need to go grocery shopping, average everyday tasks become virtually impossible. Being able to drive is like breathing because we don’t notice that we’re breathing until someone takes away the oxygen; then we panic! Once we can’t drive, everyday life becomes a nightmare.
Driving under suspension is NOT an option because if someone was arrested for driving while under suspension for drunk driving, they would be charged with a new and separate criminal offense of driving under suspension. That particular charge requires a mandatory 30-day jail sentence, above and beyond any punishment for the drunk driving case.
We have represented many people who have arrested for driving with an elevated blood alcohol level. We work to try and bring some order back into their lives.
