Wrongful Death

NYC Wrongful Death Attorney

Without notice or warning, a the warmth and joy of a loved one can be ripped from our lives.  We all know the pain and sadness that results when a loved one dies at the end of a long battle with an illness, or just as the body wears out at the end of a long, fruitful life.  While unfortunate, we can deal with these natural events of a life cycle, and be happy for the years we know the departed.

But, when a loved one is taken from us before their time, and without notice, the death is particularly difficult to accept and understand.  While many premature deaths are due to the fault of no one, all too many are the result of willful or negligent acts performed by another.  These acts may include:

auto accidents

– medical malpractice or negligence

workplace negligence

– poorly maintained facilities

and many other sources.  The law cannot fill the void that a loved one’s death causes, but it can recognize the value of the victim’s life, compensate for death, compensate the family for economic loss, and hold the negligent party accountable as the family grieves and heals.

Antin, Ehrlich & Epstein, LLP is ready and prepared to bring sensitivity and unrelenting commitment to help you if a loved one is the victim of personal injury, whether fatal or non-fatal.  You will find no better advocate than us as we help you reclaim your their life in the wake of your personal tragedy.

Motor Vehicle Accident — $1,360,000 Settlement In The Wrongful Death Of Driver Due To Road Defect
The estate of a driver who was killed after he was struck by a car that had crossed the double yellow line on a road sued Orange County because of the poor driving conditions on the road. The man, who died of a lacerated liver, was hit by a driver who was traveling at a safe speed but “floated” across the roadway because the pavement had become polished. Scott Epstein was able to reach a settlement for the estate of the deceased man for $1,360,000 from the county for previously ignoring the problems with the road.
