Formidable New York Wrongful Death Lawyers

Real help when negligence claims a loved one’s life

When wrongful or negligent behavior causes a death, Barasch McGarry Salzman & Penson advocates vigorously on behalf of the family to help hold the responsible person or company accountable.

We make it our mission to obtain the best possible outcome that our more than 100 combined years of injury law experience can generate. We do so with compassion and understanding.

We know money is no substitute for a lost loved one. We hope the compensation we can obtain helps provide closure and peace. On behalf of spouses and dependent children, and sometimes surviving parents, we pursue:

  • Economic damages
    • Lost future earnings
    • Loss of support
  • Noneconomic damages
    • Loss of enjoyment of life
    • Loss of service
  • Funeral and burial expenses
  • Medical expenses
  • Punitive damages

Do not delay — a two-year time limit applies

It may be difficult to think long-term so soon after the death of a loved one, but it is immensely beneficial to discuss the deadly accident with a qualified wrongful death attorney. A wrongful death action in New York must be filed under strict deadlines, and any delay can result in lost evidence and irreparably may damage your case. Wrongful death lawsuits must be filed within two years of a death or one year from the date you reasonably should have known that someone else was responsible for the death.

Once you suspect negligence played a role in the death, you should contact an attorney and provide as much information as possible — medical records, the death certificate, accident or police reports, and information about the wrongdoer or possible witnesses. This information can hasten the evaluation process. The sooner you contact us, the faster and more efficiently a lawyer at our firm can work on your case.

Any type of personal injury accident that is fatal can be the basis of a wrongful death claim, including a car accident, truck accident, bike accident or motorcycle accident.
