As experienced personal injury attorneys, we understand first and foremost that nothing can ever replace a lost spouse, child, parent or other loved one. When someone’s negligent or even reckless actions end in loss of life, no amount of compensation can ever make things right or undo a family’s trauma.
At StolzenbergCortelli, LLP, our job as legal counsel is to help our clients understand their legal options following a family member’s negligently caused death, and to be an aggressive but compassionate guide through the wrongful death claims process. We take our role so seriously because we understand that in addition to the emotional toll a sudden death can take, it can take a very real and serious financial toll. No family should have to add financial burden to their emotional burden, and we fight hard to make sure our clients don’t.
If you’re ready to speak with a lawyer, we encourage you to do so as soon as possible, as wrongful death claims in New York have a two-year statute of limitations. Call our office for a no-fee consultation with a White Plains wrongful death lawyer.
It is easy to underestimate the expenses that accompany an accident-related death. Many families are shocked to discover how high costs for medical care during a loved one’s battle can be, to say nothing of burial and funeral expenses.
Compensation in a wrongful death claim can include these and other financial costs, including:
In cases of extreme carelessness and intentional actions, families may also be able to recover punitive damages. These can provide families with additional financial security and send a strong message that this type of behavior is taken seriously.
