Respected New York Lawyer Pursues Justice for Victims of Negligence or Violence
A representative of a deceased person’s estate may have a valid basis for a wrongful death lawsuit if the death was a direct result of another person’s or organization’s negligent or intentional actions. Our law firm may represent you and your family if you lost a loved one due to any of the following causes:
- Auto accident
- Truck accident
- Slip and fall
- Traumatic brain injury
- Motorcycle accident
- Defective product
- Lack of proper security
- Medical malpractice
- Birth injury
- Nursing home abuse and neglect
- Aviation accident
Our thorough understanding of New York wrongful death laws enables me to skillfully handle all legal aspects of your case and to seek the remedy you deserve. Those laws set a time limit to pursue a wrongful death claim, so it is essential you seek the legal help you need as early as possible.
Caring Counselor Seeks Compensation for Grieving Families
We understand the profound impacts of the loss of a loved one, which is why we devote substantial resources to every wrongful death case we take. The damages awarded in a wrongful death lawsuit depend on a variety of factors, including the severity of the accident and the individual’s suffering prior to passing. We will strive to help clients receive compensation for:
- Medical costs
- Funeral expenses
- Mental anguish
- Loss of future earnings
- Loss of love, affection and companionship
- Loss of protection and guidance
- Benefits lost due to the victim’s death, including medical insurance
We employ private investigators and work with expert witnesses to ensure that your case is as strong as possible. We may also collect and preserve evidence from the accident scene and obtain testimony from people with first-person knowledge of your loved one’s passing. Additionally, we will explore all options before focusing in on a tailored legal strategy to help you receive the maximum compensation possible.
