Attorney discussions about a wrongful death in AlbanyThere is nothing more painful and tragic than losing someone you love amidst circumstances you feel could have been avoided.

When your loved one is a victim of a willful or negligent act of another – a wrongful death suit may offer a sense of justice and compensation to those left behind.

What is Wrongful Death?

When death is found to be the result of intentional or unintentional acts or negligence of a person, persons, or entity, NY State laws allow for legal action. A wrongful death lawsuit may result in a settlement that will compensate the family of the deceased and provide for them financially in the absence of their loved one.
