If you don’t know where to start, scheduling a free consultation with a wrongful death lawyer is the first step. As the parent, spouse, sibling, or relative of the deceased individual, you may have a right to a wrongful death claim and to file a lawsuit to recover damages. You can tell us your story and how you feel, our attorneys care about your situation and we know each case is unique, we listen and strategize the appropriate steps for your case. 

According to HG Legal Resources, the victim’s family members are entitled to litigation proceedings and have the right to file for a wrongful death claim lawsuit. When our Bronx wrongful death attorneys hear about your case, they get to work. If an accident did occur, our Bronx wrongful death lawyers focus on distinguishing if it was indeed an honest accident or an act to cause physical harm with intent by a person or other entity acting in a neglectful manner.

Personal Injury and Damages

Whether you are a victim of an on-the-job injury, an unsafe work environment, or an accident that resulted in a near-death or severe bodily harm through no fault of your own, you are eligible to recover compensation benefits as a result of bodily injury or damages to your personal property.  

The Association of Personal Injury Lawyers establishes the premise for hiring an attorney. Even an injury like a fractured wrist can cause excruciating pain and can disrupt a person’s ability to drive normally and completing tasks at work may be near impossible, this can negatively impact the victim’s social life and earnings potential That is why hiring an attorney for your personal injury case is in your best interest.

Insurance companies often get involved, and when they do, the responsible party’s insurance will usually cover the victim’s expenses such as medical bills, funeral expenses, and other damages, but to a certain extent. At Jesse Minc Personal Injury Law, we fight to recover all insurance compensation benefits so you can earn peace of mind and get the true value of what you deserve.  

Recovery and Compensation

Wrongful death settlements vary in their payout depending on the nature of the case, but the objective is to place value on the loss of life, companionship, and lost wages. The reality is that, unfortunately, no amount of financial reward can truly compensate for the loss of life, but the success of a wrongful death claim lawsuit will prove that a wrong was committed and justice can be brought to the attention of the court.

Other examples of wrongful death scenarios can include slip and fall, negligent security, assault and battery, and even homicide. Bronx wrongful death attorneys know that these are events that can happen, and you can take the first steps with our legal team to discuss how we can help your case and seek justice for your family.

You are entitled to receive compensation benefits in areas such as:

  • Hospital and Medical Expenses
  • Funeral Expenses
  • Conscious Pain and Suffering
  • Personal Property Damage
  • Lost Wages and Benefits

Depending on the nature of your case, your family may be eligible for additional compensation benefits as a result of extensive damages to personal property as well as the deep emotional wounds that were brought upon your family due to a fatal accident. Just like with wrongful death claims, Bronx personal injury cases can award families with the resources they need to get through the hardship of an injured family member that was a victim of a negligent and dangerous event.
