We Hold Negligent Parties Accountable for Wrongful Death

The sudden loss of a spouse, parent, or child is one of the most traumatic experiences anyone can endure. If you have lost a loved one in an auto accident because another person was careless, you have the right to hold that person accountable.

Discuss your case in a free consultation. Call (212) 577-9325.

Wrongful death claims can be filed by the immediate families of the people tragically lost in car accidents. Wrongful death claims cannot replace your loved one, nor are they meant to, but they do provide a sense of closure and justice that helps families move forward.

We are experienced at pursuing wrongful death claims for all types of motor vehicle accidents including, but not limited to the following:

Compensation for wrongful death claims represent multiple losses, including loss of companionship and the loss of future support your loved one would have provided. Wrongful death claims can also be used to compensate for pain and suffering, allowing you the resources to seek counseling and healing.

Who Can be Held Accountable?

Holding parties responsible includes more than irresponsible drivers. The Perecman Firm, P.L.L.C. understands the complex and various factors that contribute to a fatal car or truck accident. The state of the vehicle, the state of the road, the company that owns the vehicle at fault (if applicable) — a fatal vehicle collision may involve some or all of these parties.

The entities who can be held accountable in a wrongful death vehicle case include:

  • The designer of the road
  • The driver of the vehicle at fault
  • The company employing the at-fault driver
  • Government agencies responsible for the roadway
  • The manufacturer or installer of a failed piece of equipment
