Your Compassionate Legal Guide In Wrongful Death Claims

A loved one’s passing can be devastating, and that is especially true when the loss was unexpected. If you lose a family member or friend to a negligent act, you can expect both emotional turmoil and overwhelming financial consequences. Families and individuals going through this deserve help.

Kelner & Kelner proudly represents clients throughout New York’s five boroughs: Manhattan, Queens, the Bronx, Brooklyn and Staten Island.

Pursuing Justice Under The Law

As your family handles this loss, our firm is committed to helping you get the support and compensation you deserve. We use our experience to advocate for you and demand fair treatment throughout your family’s recovery. The lawyers at Kelner & Kelner have held parties accountable for their negligent and careless actions for more than 75 years.

We Can Help You Through This Difficult Time

Our attorneys understand that wrongful death lawsuits can be difficult and emotionally draining. This fact may make some individuals hesitant to have the untimely deaths of their loved ones examined in court. Although we realize that you are going through a difficult time, it is imperative that your wrongful death case be filed as soon as possible to ensure that all circumstances are investigated accurately and completely, all evidence is preserved correctly, and all responsible parties are identified.

It is also important to file your claim right away because most states set a maximum time period for surviving families to file a wrongful death case under a statute of limitations. Contact our New York City law firm today for a free and confidential case evaluation.
