We obtained $1.89 million for the estate of a woman killed in the 9/11 attack on the World Trade Center. By obtaining statements from her co-workers and managers, we were able to show that her earning capacity was greater than the amount of her current income. In return, she deserved greater compensation.
Don’t Let The Evidence Disappear
After an accident is fatal, it is important to begin working with an experienced personal injury lawyer right away. Evidence can disappear after an accident. Perhaps a car is repaired — or sold. Witnesses begin to forget what they saw. A stair railing or elevator is fixed.
When you contact our law firm right away, an investigator can get to the scene and preserve the evidence. In the case of a wrongful death, the victim cannot testify and so a case may be based on evidence. It’s important to preserve that evidence and preserve the scene. The wrongful death case may hinge on evidence rather than testimony.
Sakkas, Cahn & Weiss, LLP, is a personal injury law firm focused 100 percent on recovering the maximum compensation for personal injury victims and their families.
Minimize Your Stress — Maximize Your Compensation
When a car accident or another type of accident is fatal, the family or beneficiaries are due several types of compensation. Our Brooklyn wrongful death lawyers will work to obtain the maximum amount of compensation for your loss with minimum stress or work on your part.
- Lost wages — Known as pecuniary loss, these are the wages that the accident victim would have earned during his or her remaining working years.
- Medical expenses — Ambulance service and heroic medical measures should be compensated.
- Pain and suffering — Many victims do not die instantly, and compensation is due for their pain and suffering prior to death.
- Loss of consortium — A spouse is entitled to loss of marital relations that would have been enjoyed or loss of a parental relationship (love and affection) if the victim was a parent.
