Bronx Accidental Construction Death Lawyer
What if a loved one, on whom you depend for support and companionship, dies as a result of a construction accident or mishap? Do you have ny recourse other than the small amounts allowed under Workmens’ Compensation?
New York law permits immediate family members of someone who died while working to file claims to recover compensation and damages. The exact type of claim depends on the circumstances of the death. It is important to consult a knowledgeable and sympathetic wrongful death attorney to learn about your rights after the death of a loved one turned your world upside down.
At the New York law firm of Antin, Ehrlich & Epstein, LLP, Attorneys at Law, our lawyers have been helping clients with personal injury and wrongful death matters for more than 25 years. A focus of our practice is construction accident injuries and deaths. Because of our vast experience, we are able to advise clients about filing wrongful death claims after a fatal accident at a construction site.
Helping Clients Relieve Their Anxiety
We know that recovering compensation will not solve your problems or take away your grief. However, we can help ensure that you have adequate financial resources to remove one source of worry and anxiety. This lets you start to put your life back together after a fatality.
Another source of stress is not knowing where the case stands. Your attorney at Antin, Ehrlich & Epstein, LLP will not allow that to happen.
