Bronx Wrongful Death Lawyer – Free Consultation

Few other experiences can be as horrifying as losing a loved one unexpectedly. In such situations, it’s at times difficult to remember that taking legal action immediately is of the upmost importance.

If the death of your loved one was caused by negligence or recklessness of a third party, it is your legal right to demand compensation; Federal law, as well as New York law, ensures that you don’t have to pay any unpaid funeral expenses and medical bills. In addition, you should also be compensated for the loss of financial support if the deceased person was one of the main breadwinners of your family.

A qualified lawyer may also help you receive compensation for sorrow, grief, and mental suffering. You may also claim compensation for loss of care and guidance, loss of consortium, and loss of companionship and love.

If your loved one was a victim of a drunk driving accident, the perpetrator faces criminal charges for causing the accident. However, sometimes the family of the deceased individual doesn’t get any compensation even if the person is proven guilty in the criminal court. If you want to recover the compensation you deserve after the death of a loved one due to a third party’s negligence or recklessness, you must hire an experienced and qualified Bronx wrongful death lawyer. The experienced attorney will do everything from filing a lawsuit against the organization or individual responsible for the death of your loved one to taking necessary steps for recovering the compensation you deserve.

When should you hire a wrongful death attorney?

The section below talks about the most common wrongful death cases.

Injuries or accidents

 

The majority of the wrongful death cases involve injuries and accidents. Car accidents resulting from reckless driving, falls from poorly maintained or unsafe buildings, and workplace deaths resulting from an unsafe working environment: these are some of the most common examples of accident cases leading to wrongful death.

Remember, these are just a few examples; your lawyer will be able to tell you about more types of accidents that lead to wrongful death lawsuits.

Medical malpractice

According to a survey conducted recently, medical negligence is the third most common factor leading to deaths in the US; the first two are heart diseases and cancer. Medical malpractice typically involves a failure in diagnosing or misdiagnosing a serious health disorder.

In addition, medical malpractice also occurs when a there is a treatment error or surgery error.

You should talk to a wrongful death attorney practicing in your area if you think that your loved one died because he/she didn’t receive reasonable care from medical professionals attending him/her.

Defective drugs

 

Often pharmaceutical companies get sued for not disclosing or covering up potential adverse effects of drugs manufactured by them.

For instance, if a pharmaceutical firm fails to warn users/consumers regarding a potentially harmful or fatal interaction between a drug manufactured by them and another drug, the company can be sued for causing wrongful death.

 

In such cases, the federal and state laws would help you earn compensation even if the drug in question was approved by the FDA.

Hiring an seasoned attorney with experience in successfully handling similar cases in your area would allow you to receive maximum compensation.

Defective products

Defective products can lead to wrongful deaths in a number of ways. Here, the term “defective product” is an umbrella term used for any product that is designed, made, or marketed defectively or imperfectly.

For example, if a poorly designed crib has bars that are too wide, fatal infant choking can occur. Similarly, if a product doesn’t provide detailed warnings and/or proper instructions, this can also lead to a wrongful death case.

Manufacturing errors can also lead to a wrongful death case; if a person dies due to car manufacturing error, the defective product would lead to a wrongful death case.

If a loved one of yours has died because of a defective product, a wrongful death lawyer can file a lawsuit on your behalf against the manufacturing company to help you to receive just compensation.

  • "Carmen Giordano came to my rescue when I needed it most. I was a passenger in a taxi that crashed, leaving me badly injured and unable to work or take care of my 3 children. The taxi company tried to downplay my injuries and my losses. But Carmen fought for me every step of the way in this complicated case. He understood my lost wages, and understood the strain on my family (he’s a father too). He made sure the judge understood it, too. By the the time he concluded his eloquent opening argument, the defendants quickly settled. I remain extremely grateful to Mr. Giordano."  -Lauren
