New York Wrongful Death Attorney

The legal team at Bottar Leone, PLLC, understands that when a family member dies as a result of the wrongful actions or negligence of a third party, no amount of financial compensation can replace the loss of that loved one.

However, if you are a family member of a victim of a wrongful death, you may be faced with associated costs and expenses that you don’t have the ability to pay. It is important to seek the assistance of an experienced personal injury lawyer to recover the compensation required by law for your loss.

Actual losses  for the surviving family members that can be compensable under state law by the culpable third parties responsible for the wrongful death include:

  • Loss of benefits to the surviving family members from the departed loved one’s place of employment
  • Loss of income and family support over the life expectancy of the deceased family member
  • Pain and suffering, including emotional distress of the surviving family members
  • Medical bills (ambulance, hospital and doctor bills)
  • Funeral and burial expenses
  • Loss of companionship

Compassionate Legal Representation

Our attorneys are knowledgeable and experienced in the area of personal injury law and will assist you through the establishment of a wrongful death claim and possible lawsuit. In addition, we will create the foundation of a strong case through investigative evidence and will counsel you, as the surviving family members, through a very emotional ordeal.

Our goal is to place you in a better situation financially and emotionally than what you are in when you first consulted with a wrongful death lawyer. We understand a client’s distress and needs, both immediate and long-term.

The lawyers at Bottar Leone, PLLC, will provide one-on-one personal representation to you after the loss of a loved one. We explain to our clients in a clear and concise manner the requirements to prove a wrongful death case. The death of a family member must be shown to have been caused by the wrongful or negligent conduct of a third party.

It is imperative to prove that the immediate surviving family members have suffered and will continue to suffer actual monetary losses as well as emotional distress; all of which are compensable under New York state law.
