We Represent Individuals in Wrongful Death Cases.

As one of the Hudson Valley’s most respected and diverse personal injury law firms, we are proud of our reputation as attorneys dedicated to fighting for the injured throughout the Ulster, Dutchess, Sullivan, Rockland and Orange County NY area.

When manufacturers, employers, doctors, or drivers act with indifference towards the safety of others or with gross negligence and a fatality occurs, they can be held responsible in wrongful death actions. In each case, liability must be proven or a duty of care shown. The key question is: Did a company, caregiver or driver knowingly act in a dangerous manner that disregarded the well-being of others? At Ostrer & Associates, our attorneys work with accident investigators, safety experts, engineers and medical experts to establish reckless indifference or negligence on the part of people who cause fatal accidents.

A Thorough Analysis of Your Wrongful Death Case

It’s not uncommon for those responsible for causing a fatal accident to deny responsibility. The degree to which a party could have – and should have – foreseen dangers of their actions will often determine liability. Our attorneys work with investigators and experts in presenting wrongful death cases, underscoring the issue of foreseeability: Did an employer, manufacturer, caregiver, or driver have reason to know their actions or product put others in danger? We work to show the responsible party should have foreseen dangers inherent in their actions to hold them financially accountable for the tragic result.
