New York City Wrongful Death Attorney

A New York City wrongful death lawyer at O'Dwyer & Bernstien will help you understand your legal rights after the loss of a family member, or loved one. We will always fight to provide you with closure, adequate compensation, and stand strong for justice.

No amount of money could ever replace what your lost loved one means to you and your family. Unfortunately, money is the only remedy available to those who have been left behind when an innocent person dies due to the negligence of another.

Like other personal injury claims, it is important to move swiftly in order to bolster the odds of success. At O’Dwyer & Bernstien, LLP, we have extensive experience representing the interests of estates in wrongful death claims. We offer compassionate advocacy from partners and associates who possess the skills to resolve even the most complicated cases.

Compensation For A Wrongful Death

What can an estate gain from a settlement or jury award? Wrongful death suits can result in monetary damages to compensate for the victim’s conscious pain and suffering, medical costs incurred, and economic loss sustained by eligible family members as a result of the victim’s death.

Our lawyers serve people in wrongful death claims stemming from:

  • Construction site accidents
  • Motor vehicle accidents
  • Medical malpractice
  • Unsafe premises
  • Defective products
  • Airplane accidents
  • Elevator accidents

The statute of limitations in fatal accident cases is less than in other types of injury cases. While it may be hard to think about getting involved in a legal case during this difficult time, you need to act quickly. You can rely on us to handle all of your legal issues so you can focus on what matters most.

Contact us today to schedule a free consultation with our compassionate, accomplished attorneys. If you cannot come to our New York City office, we will go to you.

If you or a loved one has been fatally injured due to someone's negligent behavior, it's critical to seek the advice of an accomplished wrongful death attorney. Our experienced injury lawyers can help you understand the wrongful death statutes and discuss the next steps under New York state law.
