Wrongful Death Claims for Injured First Responders
Unfortunately, firefighters and police officers are often victims of wrongful death. If you lost a loved one due to another party’s reckless behavior, you can pursue justice by teaming up with a firefighter injury attorney in NYC.
Our legal professionals will seek economic and non-economic losses on your behalf, including loss of companionship, loss of income, and reimbursement for funeral and burial expenses. Don’t try to navigate this type of wrongful death claim on your own. Instead, let our firefighter and police injury lawyers demand justice for the loss of your loved one.
How We Prove Liability in a Wrongful Death Case
One important aspect of proving a wrongful death case is determining who was responsible for your loved one’s accident—and gathering convincing evidence to show that this party is liable. This task is something that we can handle for you, as it may be challenging to examine all the details of your loved one’s accident on your own.
Keep in mind that the person who caused the accident may not be the person responsible for compensating you. This is yet another aspect of proving liability that can be complicated. For instance, if your loved one passed away in a car crash, you may think that the driver is responsible for your case; however, we may determine that another party is liable after we investigate.
Liable parties may include:
- Trucking companies
- Cargo loading companies
- Vehicle manufacturers
- Parts manufacturers
- Construction crews
- Local or state municipalities
We can fight to ensure that the appropriate party is held responsible in your case.
If the Other Party Claims Your Loved One Was Responsible
Ideally, insurance companies pay wrongful death claims based on the evidence in your case. However, more often than not, people run into complications when collecting a fair settlement for their injuries. For instance, the liable party may argue that they were not responsible in an attempt to avoid paying for your family’s losses.
You don’t have to deal with these accusations on your own. If an insurance company tries to challenge or deny your claim, we can prove that the other party was responsible for the fatality.
At Dansker & Aspromonte Associates, we have a legal team specializing in all types of personal injuries. Whether you need a wrongful death birth injury attorney, car accident lawyer, or construction accident attorney, we are the law firm you can trust. We are dedicated to our clients, and we fight to help families secure a fair settlement for their loss of life.
Types of Wrongful Death Cases We Handle
There are several types of accidents that can cause a wrongful death:
- Vehicle accidents: If a driver or other road user does something careless or reckless and causes an accident, they can be liable for any injuries that occur. Examples of negligent actions may include texting and driving, driving while intoxicated, speeding, or tailgating.
- Dangerous premises: When a property owner, tenant, or maintenance company fails to ensure that a sidewalk, stairwell, building, or other property is safe, they may be liable for a serious injury or death that results.
- Unsafe construction sites: Dangerous conditions on construction sites such as unsafe ladders, missing safety devices or scaffolds, tripping hazards on work surfaces, and unprotected openings may be the result of the negligence of the property owner, general contractor, or another subcontractor.
- Nursing home abuse and neglect: Nursing home residents have the right to live in a safe, clean facility. If your loved one suffered neglect or physical, emotional, financial, or sexual abuse, you can hold the facility and abuser liable.
- Medical malpractice: If a medical professional fails to uphold their industry’s standard of care and causes injury to a patient, they can be held liable. Examples of medical malpractice include misdiagnosis, surgical errors, anesthesia errors, and missed diagnoses.
Whether you need a construction accident, medical malpractice, or slip and fall accident attorney, our personal injury law firm can help. Our dedicated legal team makes it their mission to achieve a successful verdict for your wrongful death and recover the compensation your family deserves.
