The New York City Police Department has recently reported that traffic fatalities have increased 14.9% in 2020, compared to 2019. In 2020, there have been 224 traffic-related deaths that occurred in the City compared to a total of 195 in 2019.
The family of loved ones wrongfully killed by negligent drivers are often left with medical bills that they cannot afford to pay, and to make matters worse, many times the victim was the family’s financial provider. This leaves the family with a significant financial burden due to a tragedy which is often no fault of the victim.
At the Law Offices of Louis Grandelli, we take ever measure possible to protect the interests’ of the family of those wrongfully killed in accidents. Our office has set precedents in wrongful death cases in the Appellate Divisions of the State of New York, and we zealously represent families of the victim in every wrongful death case we handle. We hire the most qualified experts, including accident reconstructionists and economists, to ensure that the families receive the maximum amount of compensation our civil justice system allows. Over the years, our recoveries for the families of fatal motor vehicle accidents or for victims of catastrophic injuries in car accidents have been among the highest in New York State. In recent years, we have obtained a $16 million damages verdict for a Brooklyn man who sustained a severe brain injury in a motorcycle accident, $10 million for the family of a man killed in a truck accident, $3.1 millions for a Long Island man injured in a rear end collision, and many more multi-million dollar recoveries.
