What Constitutes Wrongful Death?
In the state of Connecticut, wrongful death refers to situations when someone dies due to the fault of another person, business or other entity. In most wrongful death cases, the death occurs due to negligence or misconduct. The difference between wrongful death and manslaughter or murder is the fact that the guilty party did not intend to harm the individual who was killed. Wrongful death cases can be brought to court by the surviving family members of the individual who was killed, provided they can show that they are suffering monetary loss as a result of the death.
