Wrongful Death

Troy, Albany, Saratoga, and Schenectady Fatal Accident and Wrongful Death Attorneys

The loss of someone close to you is always a tragic situation. It can be even more tragic when you learn that things could have gone differently if a driver, a doctor, a nurse, a general contractor or someone else had simply taken reasonable steps to avoid causing harm.

At the Law Offices of Sanford Rosenblum, P.C., our Albany wrongful death attorneys provide caring representation and guidance to clients whose loved ones have been tragically taken from them. We limit our caseload so we can give personal attention to every case we accept.

Understanding New York Wrongful Death Laws

Unfortunately, the New York state legislature has placed significant restrictions on wrongful death claims. The family members of someone who has died must bring a claim within two years, and they can only seek compensation for economic damages, not emotional suffering.

There are, however, special categories of losses that are considered economic losses under New York law, including loss of parental guidance. Also, it is possible to obtain compensation for the suffering of someone who was subjected to pain or apprehension of impending death.

Doing Whatever It Takes to Get Justice for Your Family

Because the Law Offices of Sanford Rosenblum, P.C. is exclusively dedicated to handling cases involving catastrophic and fatal injuries, we are highly familiar with New York’s wrongful death laws and knowledgeable about the steps that can be taken to pursue the maximum available compensation for our clients.

No amount of money can bring back a loved one who has been taken from you by someone else’s careless behavior. But a wrongful death claim is an opportunity to reveal the truth of exactly what happened and make sure the responsible party is held accountable.
