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. No one can put a price on the life of a loved one, but the compensation you receive may be your best opportunity of seeking justice for your loss and moving forward afterwards.
At Sheffy, Mazzaccaro, DePaolo & DeNigris, LLP, we represent those who have tragically lost spouses and family members in fatal car accidents. Our Southington fatal car accident attorneys go above and beyond to help our clients pursue justice. We provide our clients with the compassion and respect they deserve while we fight for their best possible outcome.
Understanding What Happened
Fatal motor vehicle 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 dangerous road design.
In the aftermath of a fatal car accident, you are likely struggling with countless questions about how such a tragedy could have happened. We can help you get answers and make sense of your legal options.
Beginning with a detailed investigation, our legal team will take every step in our power to get you the financial recovery you deserve. When necessary, we will call in experts, such as accident reconstruction specialists, to provide a professional opinion about the details of the incident. Our injury attorneys have secured millions of dollars on behalf of surviving family members in wrongful death claims.
Of course, no amount of money can make up for your loss. Compensation can, however, provide you with the financial means to avoid further hardship.
Compensation can cover:
- Medical bills
- The family’s lost income/support
- Funeral expenses
- Pain and suffering
Additionally, you can get some semblance of closure by understanding what happened and holding the at-fault parties responsible for their negligence.

The party responsible for the loss of your loved one should also be responsible for the cost of that loss. We want to help you receive a compensation that prepares you to carry on in life, and we have the experience necessary to provide you with dedicated litigation and negotiation skills. We stop at nothing to protect your rights and future.
