Wrongful Death Accidents
Our New York personal injury and accidental death law firm aggressively handles wrongful death cases caused by various types of accidents throughout New York State. When a serious accident results in the death of a loved one, family members are faced with immeasurable challenges. While grieving the loss of a close relative, they must also face the financial burdens thrust upon them, such as final hospital and medical expenses, and funeral expenses. For a surviving child, or a surviving husband or wife, the loss of the deceased parent’s or spouse’s income upon which they depended for support may be financially devastating.
Wrongful death can be caused by the same types of accidents that cause serious personal injuries, such as catastrophic automobile accidents, motorcycle accidents, bicycle accidents, Rollerblade accidents, pedestrian accidents, premises accidents, work related accidents, construction accidents, accidents caused by defective products, medical malpractice, or other accidental injuries caused by a defendant’s negligence.

He provides compassionate, effective and aggressive legal representation for the family of the deceased victim. We are a New York City wrongful death law firm that handles fatal accident cases throughout New York State.
New York State is a comparative negligence jurisdiction.
