Set Up An Estate in Probate Court – we take care of that for you

Connecticut wrongful death law provides that the legal rights of the person that passed on belong to that person’s estate. Often a spouse or other relative is appointed as the legal representative of the estate by the probate court to serve as administrator (male), or administratrix (female). If the person dies with a will, the person appointed by the decedent as Executor or Executrix of the estate has the authority to serve as the legal representative.

How Soon Will You Get Your Money If You Have a Good Case?

One of the questions we get asked most often is: If I make a recovery, how soon will I get the money? The answer depends on a few things. Early settlement is more likely when our investigation is completed soon after an accident. The sooner we get all the facts, the sooner we can present a settlement demand to the insurance company. Some cases may need to be tried to a jury if fair settlement is not offered. It is not unusual for a jury case to take 1-2 years to resolve in Connecticut. Most clients are best served by hiring a lawyer as soon as possible after a fatal accident or loss to get the process started and resolved more quickly. CLICK HERE to take action now.
