New York City Wrongful Death Attorneys for Fatal Accidents
Having someone you love suffer an injury because of another’s negligent act is terrible enough — but when those acts or omissions end in your loved one’s death, it is many times worse. Wrongful death may be caused by the careless, reckless or negligent act of another person or entity. If the death of a loved one was caused by the negligence of a third-party, the surviving family members may have the right to recover compensation for wrongful death. At Rich & Rich P.C., we understand the heartbreak and suffering you and your family are going through — and while we know that no amount of money will bring that person back into your lives, we seek to ensure that the surviving children, husbands, wives and other family members obtain financial compensation for the emotional, financial and physical loss they have undergone as well as the pain and suffering of their loved one.
The amount of compensation depends, in part, upon the income the deceased person was earning at the time of death and the amount he or she would have earned during his or her lifetime, and whether the surviving family members were dependent upon this income for support. Conscious pain and suffering of the deceased person, loss of companionship and loss of parental guidance are other factors that may be considered in determining the amount of compensation that would be fair and reasonable in a wrongful death case.
Rich & Rich, P.C. will investigate the facts and circumstances concerning your loved one’s wrongful death and determine the best legal strategy to recover compensation for your family. Our New York attorneys have a proven track record of obtaining the maximum compensation for the loss you are going through and we will bring every resource possible to seek justice for you and your family.
