New York Fatal Accidents Injury Attorney
A fatal accident is that which results in the death of one or more victims, and is most closely related to the claim of wrongful death. At the Law Offices of Kenneth A. Wilhelm, we represent the rights of the family and dependents of the deceased and we do everything we can to help you get the maximum amount of money for your claim. We can even come to you at your home, hospital or on the job. If you don’t have a doctor to treat you for your injury, we may well be able to find doctors that can treat you without you paying them until the end of the case, and we can keep insurance adjusters from calling you.
In these cases, if the responsible parties were negligent, reckless or careless in their actions or inaction, we will take the case to trial if that is the best course of action for you and if you approve. Negligence, which may be defined as the failure to use the degree of care that a reasonable person would have used under the same circumstances, is often related to motor vehicle accidents and is the most common cause of fatality in the cases we see.
In one case, we received a $1,100,000 settlement for the family of a man who was killed in a Long Island motor vehicle accident.
The Law Offices of Kenneth A. Wilhelm understands that when a family member dies there is little solace in legal action, but through a personal injury case, we will try everything we can to help you get the maximum amount of money for your claim. We will fight for every dollar so that you can move on with your life.
Economic vs. Noneconomic Damages
Economic damages are the actual costs incurred by the deceased’s family and can include medical and funeral expenses, loss of income, and other out-of-pocket costs. Noneconomic damages are monetary damages for emotional pain and suffering and loss of consortium (which is when a spouse suffers because of their partner’s injury). Our firm has obtained large awards for our clients so they would have the resources to move on from their tragedy.
