Accidents happen. But when someone you love is fatally injured due to no fault of their own, legal action must be taken to hold the offender accountable. Further, most commonly, wrongful death results from automobile accidents, medical malpractice, industrial negligence, and boating accidents. Medical bills, burial arrangements, lost wages, and emotional distress are just a few of the issues the family must now face.

It is imperative that you hire a legal team capable of advocating on your behalf to ensure you receive the financial compensation that you are entitled to. The wrongful death lawyers of Kantrowitz, Goldhamer & Graifman P.C. have helped thousands of families and would be honored to help yours, too. 

Automobile Accidents

On average, there are 292 deaths each year due to motor vehicle traffic-related injuries, according to the New York State Department of Health. As the country’s leading cause of wrongful death lawsuits, it is essential that you have a legal team well-practiced in this arena ready to fight insurance companies seeking to minimize or discount damages and losses. 

Medical Malpractice

While medical professionals take an oath to uphold professional ethical standards, they often misdiagnose a patient’s condition or are negligent in the care they provide. As a result, patients die, and family members are left to pick up the pieces after medical malpractice. Fortunately, financial compensation may be available from either the doctor’s insurance policy or from the hospital.

Industrial Negligence

Safety precautions are paramount in preventing injury in an industrial setting where machinery is heavy, loud, and often mobile. Unfortunately, however, employees are often fatally injured in this environment. Negligence in this context may include an illness due to an unsafe work environment, fires, improper training, or faulty equipment. If your loved one has suffered a wrongful death due to workplace negligence, now is the time to contact a hardworking and knowledgeable legal team.

Boating Accidents

In New York, where residents can enjoy lakes, rivers, and even the ocean, boating accidents are common. The causes–which are similar to car accidents—are operating the boat while under the influence, while distracted or tired, or simply reckless behavior can all contribute to a wrongful death lawsuit. In addition, when a boat operator either causes an accident or fails to provide reliable safety devices for occupants, they may be held accountable for wrongful death.
