Fatal Accidents

Fatal Accident Lawsuits
in Rhode Island and Connecticut

After a fatal accident, surviving family members are often left in a state of shocked disbelief. Feelings of anger, outrage or irrepressible sadness may quickly surface. Grief and grieving take over and the idea that anything short of that person coming back to you whole and alive can amount to fair compensation is almost blasphemous.

At the same time, the legal realties associated with a fatal accident and the wrongful death of a loved one still exist. And while there's nothing anyone can do to bring that loved one back to you, it is important to recognize that there is nothing wrong in seeking reparations and that there is value in holding people accountable for negligent and reckless conduct.

If your family has suffered the wrongful death of a loved one, I can help. I am attorney Michael Bradley and I have handled fatal accident lawsuits in Rhode Island and Connecticut throughout my career.

Experienced, Compassionate Legal Representation

Whether I am representing the family of someone whose life was lost in a deadly car crash, in a house fire or in any type of accident or tragedy, my goal is to obtain as much compensation for my clients as permitted by law.

Having said that, I also believe that it's important to set realistic expectations with my clients as early on in the process as I can. As someone who has actively practiced in both states for decades, I know that the laws of Connecticut and Rhode Island are very different in terms of the compensation plaintiffs can recover. For instance, Rhode Island does not allow compensation for the loss of enjoyment of life. As a lawyer for the family of one of the victims of the Rhode Island nightclub fire, I have seen a number of Connecticut attorneys unpleasantly surprised by this fact.

I do not like surprises and have made my living as a sole practitioner by being thorough and fully prepared in every aspect of my work. Along the way, I have been fortunate enough to achieve numerous six- and seven-figure verdicts and settlements — in part because I have developed the legal knowledge, financial resources and expert contacts required to do the job well ... and in greater part because I care about doing the job well and will not quit on my clients.
