Can a Truck Accident Be Classified as Wrongful Death?

I was hit on the highway by a tractor-trailer. My loved one died in this truck accident. Is this what a wrongful death claim is?

Connecticut Wrongful Death case is technically defined by a number of elements:

The cause of death in this type of claim may be a motor vehicle accident, medical malpractice, a fall, or any other situation in which someone else caused the death.

The Connecticut Personal Injury Lawyers with Carter Mario Law Firm can explain how truck drivers must follow a different set of standards and laws than operators of private vehicles. Failure to obey these rules can result in a trucker being found negligent in the event of an accident. That is why the firm suggests discussing your rights with an attorney after an accident involving a tractor-trailer.
