Schenectady Wrongful Death Lawyer

Survivors of Wrongful Death Victims Helped by Schenectady Injury Attorney

When you lose a loved one, grief and sadness can turn your world upside down. Nothing hurts more than when a loved one, dear friend, or relative is lost unexpectedly at the hands of negligent parties. When you lose someone due to wrongful death, the last thing on your mind may be retaining a lawyer to pursue compensation. For the majority of people, there is no dollar amount or paycheck big enough to compensate for the loss of their loved one's life.

At DeLorenzo, Grasso & Dalmata, we completely understand how invaluable the life of your dear one was. While we agree material things like money could never amount to the goodness, light, and life that your loved one brought to the world, financial compensation could bring ease and relief to the burden of paying for unforeseen expenses.

Yes, money is not everything in wrongful death scenarios, money can't bring back your loved one, and pursuing money on behalf of your loved one is never meant to lessen or cheapen the value of their life. Monetary compensation is specifically designed to provide peace of mind to the survivors of wrongful death victims.

Ease your pain and suffering by obtaining repayment for unexpected expenses like:

  • Doctor bills
  • Funeral expenses
  • Loss of earnings
  • Pain and suffering

A Schenectady personal injury lawyer can help you get back on the road to recovery, harmony, and normalcy.

Common Causes of Wrongful Death

Wrongful death suits can result from several circumstances, but are never excusable or acceptable. If your loved one was killed by the negligence of another individual, company, or dysfunctional product, you could have the right to file a wrongful death claim.

Common causes of wrongful death action include:

How to Determine the Amount of Recovery in a Wrongful Death Case

When determining the amount of compensation to be awarded, expenses and factors such as the death itself, loss of wages, loss of companionship, medical or doctor's bills, or even the amount of conscious pain and suffering experienced by the deceased prior to passing away are all considered. Since every wrongful death case is unique, not all claims to compensation will be identical or like the rest.

Speaking with an experienced Schenectady personal injury attorney from DeLorenzo, Grasso & Dalmata can help you understand what you and the remaining survivors of your loved one may be entitled to. You may not think it, but seeking compensation could be the first step toward a healthy recovery period for you and your family.

Don't hesitate to contact DeLorenzo, Grasso & Dalmata for help.

After a wrongful death in New York, surviving family members may only have up to two years after the wrongful death of your loved one to file wrongful death claims. Lawmakers in New York implemented these statutes of limitations—or time restraints—to cap off the maximum time surviving family members can get compensation for their damages.

We cannot stress enough how important it is for you to contact a lawyer immediately following the death of your loved one. Seeking legal guidance may be the last thing on your mind, but it could mean the difference between a healthy grieving period and a destructive one. The journey to recovery and normalcy could be long, painful, and heartbreaking. Do not travel the journey alone.

Seeking help from an experienced personal injury attorney from DeLorenzo, Grasso & Dalmata can help you right the wrongs that have been committed against you. They may be small actions, but these are the actions that are necessary in order to soothe the wounds of grief and anguish.
