No One Plans on Wrongful Death

Unfortunately, in life, many things happen that you don't want to happen. Sometimes, you are innocently going about your business, when the worst possible scenario happens: someone important to you dies. You'll be left with a number of burning questions in your mind that you want answers to, including:

  • Could your loved one's death have been prevented if the offending party acted in a more responsible, reasonable way?
  • Who will hold the offending party accountable for their actions?
  • If the person that was killed was the primary income provider, how are you going to take care of yourself?
  • What amount can you reasonably expect to receive via a settlement or lawsuit?
  • How long do you have to file a lawsuit?

At Buckvar & Buckvar, we can help you answer all of these questions and more. Our experienced wrongful death lawyers are standing by, ready to help you get the fair legal outcome you deserve.

Compassionately Listening to Your Concerns

If your loved one has experienced a wrongful death, our number one prior lies in making sure your voice is heard. We will listen to every detail of your story, notify you of your rights, thoroughly investigate your case, and then pursue compensation to the maximum extent of the law.

At Buckvar & Buckvar, you can count on us to understand every detail of your case and fight passionately for your rights in the court of law.

Tirelessly Holding Offenders Accountable

Defendants in wrongful death suits often don't want to take responsibility for their actions. They will find any way they can to avoid paying their fair share. But, you have rights to defend in court, and you can receive financial compensation for:

  • Lost work wages
  • Physical and emotional pain and suffering
  • Loss of companionship
  • Medical and funeral expenses

You also potentially may be able to receive punitive damages, which are awarded as an additional punishment for particularly reckless behavior.

Remember, the State of New York places a statute of limitations on wrongful death lawsuits. This means that if you don't pursue your case in court within a specified time period, you can never again take that case to court.

At Buckvar & Buckvar, we have more than 50 years of combined experience helping families like you vindicate their loved ones' wrongful death suits in court. For a FREE consultation, contact us at 212-962-2173, and we'll discuss the details of your case with you.
