Wrongful Death Attorney

There are many cases where individuals are killed by the negligent acts of others. If your loved one has been killed in an accident that was caused by the negligence of another, or if they incurred injuries that lead to their death in this accident then they are considered to be the victims of wrongful death. As the family of a wrongful death victim, you may be able to collect money damages to help offset any financial difficulties you have incurred in this death. While no amount of money can replace a loved one, these damages may be extremely helpful in your situation. A skilled representative from our firm will be able to help you through the process of filing a lawsuit to obtain damages.

Among the many different causes of wrongful death, car accidents caused by negligence can be one of the more common. In 2010 in New York there were 1,119 fatal accidents involving a motor vehicle. In these accidents over 600 divers were killed, and nearly 200 passengers were killed. There were 311 pedestrians that were killed in a vehicle accident and 36 bicyclists that were killed. There are many various traffic laws that are in place in order to maintain safety on the road. Failing to follow these laws can be considered negligence and can result in the death of one or more individuals.
