Senior Partner Marc Thompson in Newsweek magazine

At Pulvers, Pulvers, Thompson & Friedman we understand the obvious emotional stress and pain that comes with the loss of a loved one. While we consider every matter we accept of the utmost importance, we appreciate the heightened responsibility that comes with litigating a wrongful death case. As such, we are especially proud to have been recognized in the October 15, 2012 edition of Newsweek as leaders in wrongful death.

Few events in life can be as devastating as the loss of a loved one. Beyond the emotional pain, such an accident can bring financial fears and a seemingly never-ending list of new expenses and costs. As wrongful death attorneys, we have provided counsel to numerous families that have experienced a tragedy similar to your own and we are here to help you through this difficult time. While we appreciate that a financial award cannot rectify the wrong done to you and your family, we do our very best to alleviate the financial strain.

While each wrongful death matter occurs through the negligent act of another, each wrongful death accident is unique and brings with it a wide range of possible financial awards. In New York State wrongful death actions are governed by the New York Estates, Powers and Trust Laws (EPTL). EPTL, Section 5-4.3 details the right to recover damages in a wrongful death law suit. The most common types are loss of incomes, funeral expenses, medical expenses, loss of companionship and pain and suffering.
