Know Your Rights When A Loved One Is Killed

Earning Your Trust In Your Time Of Need

The death of a loved one in a fatal car accident caused by reckless driving is one of the most difficult situations a family can face. Not only are you deprived of the emotional love and support of your family member, you may also face an economic loss, including:

  • Income loss from the time of death to retirement
  • Insurance benefits, including medical and dental
  • Retirement income loss and reduced inheritance
  • Costs of medical and funeral expenses

If we can prove that the careless motorist intended to hurt or kill, we may be able to pursue additional punitive damages in special cases.

If you believe you have a valid wrongful death claim, please do not delay in making an appointment to consult with us Both Connecticut and New York have deadlines and statutes of limitation that make it impossible to file a claim after a certain period.

Building A Strong Case

  • Police and accident reports
  • Medical reports
  • Witnesses to the accident or medical malpractice occurrence
