Where To Turn When A Fatal Car Accident Claims The Life Of A Loved One

Every year, hundreds of people are killed in traffic accidents across Connecticut, according to the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety. This bare-bones fact means little until it happens to your loved one. Then, you are left reeling, unsure how to move forward or make ends meet.

Understanding What Happened

Fatal accidents are not always the result of mere coincidence. In many cases, an investigation reveals that someone else's negligence contributed to the accident. For example, maybe the other driver was under the influence of alcohol or drugs. Maybe he or she was texting while driving. Or perhaps even the state of Connecticut may be responsible for a dangerous road design.
