Wrongful Death Attorney in the Bronx
What is wrongful death?
The willful or negligent act of an individual or group which results in the death of another is called wrongful death. It should not have occurred, or it could have been prevented. The family or beneficiaries of the deceased can file a wrongful death claim against those responsible for the death. Wrongful death statutes were originally written to protect the widows and orphans of the deceased from the loss of financial and other support of the person who died. Additionally, they were designed to persuade employers to provide safe work environments for their employees. Proving wrongful death can be complicated and involved. An experienced Bronx personal injury attorney should be consulted as soon as possible to review the facts of the event and help you to recover any potential financial compensation.
