Fatal Car Accidents

Compassionate Representation Following Fatal Car Accidents

When you are in the midst of the grieving process for a child or adult, you know that at some point you will need answers. You need a lawyer who can handle your wrongful death claim and relieve you of the burden of negotiating with insurers and investigating the car accident. If your family has lost someone in an accident, you need a lawyer with experience and success pursuing full financial compensation for surviving family members.

Helping Out You And Your Family

At Smiley & Smiley, LLP, our New York fatal car accident attorneys draw on four decades of litigation experience to represent clients in wrongful death cases. In order to prove damages in wrongful death litigation, it is typically necessary to work with key experts, including:

  • Economists, who can accurately assess the value of the future loss of benefits and income.
  • Investigators, to prove negligence on the part of defendants. At Smiley & Smiley, each of our investigators is a former police detective.
  • Medical experts to determine cause of death and to determine whether the deceased suffered from pain or fear during the accident.

We are skilled in obtaining compensation for all damages stemming from a fatal car accident, from lost income to the loss of parental guidance. We also work for expedient and effective resolutions for our clients. For example, we represented the family of a woman who was crossing a street in Manhattan when a New York City Transit Authority bus made a left turn into the crosswalk, ran over her and killed her. We took immediate action on behalf of her husband and three adult children. In just nine months, we recovered a $1.3 million settlement.
