Our Wrongful Death Attorneys in NYC Will Stand Up to Unfair Insurance Companies
When you are dealing with the death of your loved one at the hands of a negligent party, you might expect the insurance company that is representing the party at fault to treat you with some compassion. Clearly, the insurer should know that you are going through a very difficult time emotionally, so it is natural for you to expect fair treatment from the insurance company.
Unfortunately, this doesn’t happen often. Our team of wrongful death lawyers in NYC has many decades of experience collectively defending the rights of victims of someone else’s negligence. We know how insurance companies often behave in these types of cases.
The insurer may act as if it has your best interests in mind when it initially contacts you. However, always remember that the insurance company increases its profits by attempting to limit the amount of money it pays to the families during wrongful death claims.
Insurers Sometimes Try to Blame the Decedent for the Accident
To try to convince you to accept a smaller settlement than you deserve, an insurance company may try to make it seem as though your loved one made a mistake that played a significant role in the fatal accident. They may suggest that your loved one was accident prone or was frequently reckless. The insurer may even try to introduce so-called facts into the case that reveal personal details about your loved one’s life that try to paint him or her in a negative light.
Half-truths and lies like this are difficult to hear after your loved one’s fatal accident. The insurer may be trying to cause you to become highly emotional, placing you on the defensive. The insurer may hope that you will settle the case quickly for less, to put an end to the process.
Trust that our NYC wrongful death lawyer knows how insurance companies behave in cases like this. We will defend your loved one’s memory. We will make sure the insurance company sticks to the facts and does not lie about what happened.
If you find that the process of dealing with the insurer is giving you significant stress and frustration, we can help. Once you choose to hire our team, we will take over all communication with the insurance company. You do not have to speak to any insurance company representative on your own once you hire us. You can feel confident that we will represent your interests accurately in negotiations with the insurer. For a free case review, call Tucker Lawyers PC at (516) 399-2364 as soon as possible.

When you call our team for a free consultation, we will take the time to learn about your loved one’s fatal accident.

However, far more frequently we are able to determine that the facts support going forward with your wrongful death case. When you hire us, you can trust us to be honest about what may happen in your case. We will not make promises that you will win a certain amount, and we cannot guarantee that you will win anything.

We Can Help with the Challenging Aspects of Filing a Wrongful Death Lawsuit
Some families hesitate when deciding whether to file this type of claim. They may be nervous about having to relive the circumstances that led to their loved one’s fatal accident. It can be traumatic to think about how your loved one died and to discuss the case with strangers.
We understand these feelings, and we want to help as much as we can. Our New York wrongful death lawyers will try to make things as easy as possible for you as the lawsuit moves forward, but we cannot guarantee that it will be an entirely smooth process. There will be times where the emotions in the case will come to the forefront. Our team emphasizes treating our clients with compassion at every step of the way. We will stand with you from beginning to end in the case, supporting you and your family.
Some people prefer to turn inward and focus on family after the sudden death of a loved one. They may not want to think about trying to obtain a financial award. We understand this sentiment. However, if your loved one worked and contributed to the family’s finances, the fatal accident may leave your family in financial trouble without your loved one’s wages. We feel certain that your deceased family member would not want you to suffer financially after the accident.
When our team works toward helping you receive a financial judgment, we hope that this money can give you an opportunity to maintain your family’s quality of life and to keep your financial dreams and hopes for the future alive.
