New York Wrongful Death Lawyers
Tragically, some accidents result in wrongful death. Not only are family members and loved ones left with a hole that can never be fulfilled, when the victim (the “decedent”) is a family breadwinner, those who are dependent upon the decedent also suffer financially.
As such, a wrongful death claim is brought to recover damages for the injuries that the surviving family and/or estate have suffered due to the death of the victim.

I’m very grateful for Attorney Friedlander and all his staff that worked for a settlement for my Mother’s death due to wrongful death by negligence at a nursing home. It just confirms my belief that nursing homes are only there for the money, and many of the 18 year old kids working there, with no proper training, education, are totally unqualified and are also just there for a paycheck. God only knows what happens when there are no visitors or relatives there. From what I observed, many staff members were sharp, and disrespectful.
There may be a day that these same people are unfortunate to be in a Nursing Facility, and are treated the same way that they treated the elderly as an employee.
I can only hope that these nursing facilities can get their acts together sooner than later, knowing that there WILL be more lawsuits coming their way under their current “best practices”. So, KUDOS to Attorney Bill Friedlander, Christa, Billie, and so many other people who helped win this battle and have provided some much needed closure during my time of much grief and sorrow. Thank you all so much!
