Wrongful Death

Losing a loved one is an incomparably difficult thing to go through. There are no words anyone can offer and nothing anyone can do to make up for this devastating event. Dealing with loss can be extremely difficult and you may find yourself faced with endless questions. Why did this happen? Could it have been avoided? Who was responsible? However, at the same time you may be preoccupied with grief.

It is normal to feel overwhelmed by such an experience and there is no shame in taking some time to process the loss. Although there is no true way to fill the void left by a loved one, time is a great healer. It is also important to remember that you are not alone. Countless people in New York go through this very experience every week. Fortunately, there are organizations devoted to helping you through this difficult time.

Another thing you may need to consider is how the death came about. Was someone else to blame? If so, you might want to pursue a wrongful death lawsuit. In doing so, not only might you be able to secure financial compensation for your loss, but you stand a chance of acquiring some kind of justice for the person you have lost.

It is a painful thing to think about when you are still grieving. However, unfortunately there is a set time period within which you must file your claim if you want it to be accepted. An attorney can inform you of the rules in your state and assist you through the process.

Injuries caused by medical malpractice often result in more time off work, more expensive medical bills, more pain and suffering, and losses that you can never recover - time, peace of mind and the freedom to enjoy life with your family.

Construction & Work Injuries

As construction accidents rise, workers who find themselves suffering from a workplace injury should make sure they get all the help they can to ensure they are fairly compensated. Our attorneys can offer injured workers essential guidance on how to proceed with a compensation claim, especially if the job site they were working at suffered from a possible lack of compliance with safety regulations.

New York's labor law section 240 holds property owners and contractors liable for damages when workers are injured in accidents involving ladders, scaffolding, roofs, bridges, hoists and harnesses, as well as accidents caused by falling objects.
