Wrongful Death

Albany Wrongful Death Attorney Seeking Justice When Negligence Turns Fatal

When manufacturers, employers, doctors, property owners, or drivers ignore safety precautions, regulations, or flagrantly violate the law, they’re legally accountable for resulting fatalities.  At O’Connell and Aronowitz, we provide an honest legal opinion and will vigorously pursue wrongful death compensation if you have a viable claim.

With offices in Albany and Saratoga Springs, our Personal Injury Litigation Department offers over 35 years of experience and a commitment to seeking justice. Representing families across upstate New York, we handle all categories of wrongful deaths, including:

  • Fatal Auto Accidents – car crashes, trucking accidents, drunk driver accidents, bicycle accidents, pedestrian and bicyclist knockdowns
  • Motorcycle Accidents and recreational vehicle accidents – snowmobiles, All Terrain Vehicles (ATVs), boats
  • Automotive Design Flaws – Roof crush, defective air bags, failed seat belts
  • Medical Malpractice – surgical error, emergency room error, birth injury, medication error, failure to diagnosis cancer, misdiagnosis
  • Construction / Industrial Accidents

The Grieving Families Act, a landmark victory, passed the New York State Assembly in June, 2022. The valuable legislative act modernized New York’s wrongful death law to allow victims’ families to pursue damages beyond a victim’s loss of salary. O’Connell & Aronowitz’s Personal Injury & Litigation Department has the tools and resources to represent families of New York navigate their case through the updated legislation.

Your wrongful death case is contingency based. NO FEES collected.

Using experts in accident reconstruction, medical negligence, toxicology, design engineering and metals, the attorneys at O’Connell and Aronowitz will investigate the circumstances of your case thoroughly, while actively and voraciously pursuing the negligent party on your behalf.
