Wrongful Death Lawyer

Bronx Wrongful Death Lawyers

There are few things in life as profoundly painful as the loss of a loved one. Regardless of who we are, whenever we lose a member of our family, it’s a tragedy that defines us. From that moment forward, life as we know it may change forever.

The magnitude of the loss can be amplified when we lose a loved one unnecessarily. Losing someone as the result of negligence is known as wrongful death. Sadly, wrongful death cases happen all over New York every day, including the Bronx. If you’ve recently lost a loved one in what you believe to be a wrongful death, Dansker & Aspromonte can help.

Our Lawyers Support You When You Need Us Most

One of the most difficult things about losing a loved one is that you not only lose the love they gave you, but also the support they provided. When you lose someone like a wife or a husband, you don’t just lose a partner, but you also lose a caregiver and possibly a source of income too. The same goes for losing a parent or other member of your support system.

When you lose a vital cog of your support system, it needs to be replaced to the best extent possible. We know we can never replace your lost loved one, but we also want you to know you can lean on Dansker & Aspromonte to help you through this toughest of times. We want to be the people you rely on to hold the negligent party accountable for the wrongful death of your loved one.

Dankser & Aspromonte, a Firm That Fights

We’re proud of our record of winning for our clients. Since 1988 we have dedicated ourselves to fighting for the rights of injury victims just like you. We only handle accident cases.

If you have a wrongful death case, you might think the negligent party (or their insurer) would just do the right thing, accept responsibility and make a good faith settlement offer. Usually, the exact opposite happens. It’s not uncommon for insurance companies to stall cases out by negotiating in bad faith or flat-out denying liability.

Sadly, this is a strategy designed to wear you down. Insurers know most law firms don’t really want to take cases to trial. They believe the longer they make you wait, the less you’ll eventually accept. However, Dankser & Aspromonte handles all our cases as if we expect to go to trial.

Wrongful Death Is Often Due to Negligence

There are times when a person may fail to act reasonably in a situation and, due to their actions, hurt another person or cause their untimely death. The person who was careless may be considered negligent. For example, if a driver runs through a red light and hits a pedestrian crossing the street, the driver was negligent.

Other circumstances that could have led to your loved one’s passing include:

  • A building owner and/or general contractor failed to provide your loved one working at an elevated worksite with proper safety devices or provided a defective ladder or scaffold causing their fall from the elevated site.
  • A property owner willingly leased an apartment with defective or dangerous electrical wiring, leading to a fire.
  • A property owned caused or permitted a defective and dangerous condition to exist on its property causing your loved one’s accident.
  • The City of New York failed to make a proper repair on a street or roadway, causing your loved one’s fall or car accident.

Often a negligent driver or property owner will deny that they are responsible. Sometimes a police report or witness statement is not accurate. It is important that you obtain legal counsel from the wrongful death attorneys at Dansker & Aspromonte so that you can be assured that a thorough investigation of the cause of the accident is begun immediately.

You Have a Limited Time to File Your Case in New York

A Bronx wrongful death lawyer can help ensure that your case is filed on time and prepared well for the fight ahead.
