Dealing with the death of a loved one is always painful, but it can be especially traumatic when the death was caused by another person’s actions. At Kennedy, Johnson, Schwab & Roberge, L.L.C., we represent the surviving families of people killed in accidents of all kinds. Lawyers at our New Haven law firm serve clients throughout Connecticut, helping them hold negligent people accountable for the loss of their loved ones.
Established in 1988, Kennedy, Johnson, Schwab & Roberge, L.L.C., is recognized as one of Connecticut’s preeminent law firms. Many of our attorneys are AV Preeminent rated* through Martindale-Hubbell’s peer-review rating system, which is the highest rating available to attorneys. Lawyers at our firm have also been selected for inclusion in Connecticut and/or New England Super Lawyers annually since 2007.
Our high level of experience equips us to handle even the most serious matters, including wrongful death actions resulting from a broad spectrum of circumstances. We represent the families of people killed in car accidents, truck accidents, workplace accidents and accidents that occur on the property of another.
While you should never feel rushed in your decision to take legal action, there are definite advantages to working with an attorney as soon as possible after the loss of a loved one. Taking quick action will give your attorney more time to gather relevant information about the facts and laws involved.
Taking action also gives your lawyer a chance to interview witnesses while their memories are still fresh, visit the scene of a fatality and investigate evidence before it is lost or damaged.
Further, Connecticut has a statute of limitations — a time limit set by law — for wrongful death actions. If you miss the statute of limitations, you may not be able to file a lawsuit in Connecticut courts.
If you have lost a loved one, talking to an attorney can help you understand your legal options. You may be entitled to compensation for the damages you and your family experienced. Schedule a free initial consultation today. Call our New Haven office at 866-689-1248 or contact us online now.
