General Elements Of A Wrongful Death Claim In Connecticut

Nature (circumstances that allow for) of the cause of action

  • Intentional wrongful act

Those who can bring an action

  • Only the heirs or dependents of the deceased person can bring suit
  • Only one joint cause of action can be maintained

All cases have a Statute of Limitations, which can include actions for wrongful death.

There are issues that can extend the Statute of Limitations in some cases.
