At Kennedy Johnson Schwab & Roberge, LLC, we know that no amount of monetary compensation could ever make up for the loss of a loved one. You cannot put a price on closure. However, we believe there is often much more than money at stake for those who pursue justice for wrongful death through the Connecticut civil courts.

What we find so powerful about the process is not the fact that bereaved families have the potential to gain compensation for the loss of their loved ones. It is the way that these people use the funds they receive to rebuild their lives, secure their futures or even prevent future tragedies.

You can see an example of the potential power of a wrongful death lawsuit in a case across the country in Seattle. According to the MYNorthwest network, bereaved parents are bringing suit there, hopeful that they can bring about change in the system responsible for the death of their children. 

Of course, we know not everyone has the desire to fight a world of injustice; sometimes it is enough to right one wrong. We often hear of people who end up putting the money from settlements or court awards towards things the family member would have wanted, such as paying debts, maintaining a mortgage or putting children through college. 

It makes us proud to be part of a legal system that could, in one gesture, impose a penalty for careless and irresponsible acts and bestow real benefits upon injured parties. To learn more, please continue to our main legal website.
