Wrongful Death Lawsuits in Vermont
An accident resulting in the death of an individual is a very special type of case, and the Vermont law concerning such cases is complicated, and can be confusing to those unfamiliar with this specialized type of litigation. There is a shortened “statute of limitations” limiting the period during which such case may be brought. Damages (compensation) for the death of a loved one are calculated in a specialized manner in these cases, and the persons who can bring such case, and those who can collect compensation, are limited in a somewhat unusual manner specified by Vermont statutes and case law. David Lynch, Beth Danon, Roger Kohn, and David Rath, our experienced Vermont attorneys, are familiar with the nuances of wrongful death cases and the best way to handle them.
If a drunk driver kills someone, of if an intoxicated person dies as a result of the intoxication, a case against a bar, restaurant, or retail store serving liquor is often brought. This type of case, known as a “dram shop” case, is also a specialized type of litigation, and we are very familiar with the requirements of such cases.
