Truck Accident Wrongful Death Claims
Winning a wrongful death claim actually requires winning two legal battles. First, the plaintiff (party bringing the lawsuit) must prove that the negligent party caused the death of their loved one. After proving negligence, the full and fair amount of financial damages must be determined. We have experience helping family members recover the rightful money damages they are entitled to following a fatal truck accident in upstate New York.
