Wrongful Death

Syracuse Attorneys Helping Families Recover Compensation

Accidents that leave people injured happen every day in Central New York. Many times, they are caused by the negligence of another party. Sadly, sometimes these injuries are fatal. The wrongful death attorneys at Cherundolo Law Firm, PLLC help families hold negligent parties accountable.

No amount of money can bring lost loved ones back to their families. But our attorneys can help family members recover compensation as they adjust to the loss and rebuild their lives. This is especially important if the loved one had been a provider for the family.

A wrongful death case is one in which one or more parties acted negligently or recklessly, causing a fatality. This negligent or reckless behavior may have occurred as a result of medical malpractice, using a defective product, a motor vehicle accident, a work accident or other type of accident.

Our attorneys offer compassionate representation and will determine the true damages suffered by your family.

Depending on the details of the accident, these may include damages for:

  • Funeral expenses
  • Medical expenses for the treatment of your loved one
  • Loss of income
  • Loss of financial support
  • Loss of parental care and guidance
  • Loss of inheritance for surviving children
  • Pain and suffering experienced by your loved one before death

A Record of Getting Results

Wrongful death cases can be very complex. Negligent parties typically deny responsibility for what happened. Insurance companies will do what they can to keep any payment as low as possible. But our firm was built on helping clients win complex cases. We have the knowledge, experience and resources needed to get results.

Our legal team investigates your loved one's accident to find out what really happened. Our personal injury attorneys know where to find evidence of negligence. We build the strongest case possible and will fight for your loved one in court, if needed. Many times, we are able to negotiate a settlement with the insurance company that meets your needs.

If you lost a loved one in an accident caused by the negligence of another, we can help. Contact us for a free consultation. We can answer your questions and go over your legal options.
