Family wins millions in wrongful death suit

Seeking justice after the untimely death of a loved one can take time to come to fruition, but it is worth the fight. A Connecticut family recently completed a years-long pursuit of justice for their loved one, ultimately winning several million dollars in damages.

The suit originated from a biking accident that claimed a man's life in 2012 after he was struck and killed by a van while riding in East Haven. Although the man did initially survive the accident, he later succumbed to his injuries at Yale-New Haven hospital.

The van that struck the man was transporting several people, including the driver at the time of the accident, when it also struck a light pole and rolled over. Although the driver and passenger were taken to hospitals and treated, no one else suffered life-threatening injuries. The driver of the van initially faced charges of negligent homicide, but was able to enter a guilty plea to lesser charges.

Now, after a five-year ordeal, a judge has ruled in favor of the family, reportedly awarding them $6.4 million in damages for their loss.

If you recently lost a loved one in an accident, it is certainly worth consulting with an experienced attorney to identify whether or not your experience may qualify for a wrongful death suit. Like the family of the man who lost his life in the bikini accident, it can take several years to see the process through, but it is certainly worth the effort, for you sake and the memory of the one you love.

With proper legal guidance through this difficult time, you can ensure that your rights remain secure as you pursue fair compensation.
