Wrongful Death

Compassionate Legal Guidance after a Tragic Loss

Words often fail to adequately describe the tragedy of losing a loved one, especially when the death could have been prevented. It is agonizing to accept a death that was caused by the negligence of another person, because it is accompanied by a strong sense of injustice. Legal action is always an option; Vlasac & Shmaruk, LLC, helps surviving relatives file wrongful death lawsuits and recover financial damages from the responsible party. Contact our Spanish- and Russian-speaking wrongful death attorneys at our New Jersey, New York and Pennsylvania locations to schedule a free consultation.

Common Causes of Wrongful Death

Wrongful deaths can arise from many circumstances; our attorneys typically handle cases involving the following causes:

You may be questioning whether your loved one’s death was, indeed, “wrongful” or if it could have been prevented with more care. Discussing the circumstances of the case with one of our multilingual attorneys is critical. We will organize an investigation of the incident, compile evidence, speak to witnesses, and work with experts to determine who is responsible for the death, and the best way to hold this person accountable.

How Our Attorneys Can Help

Wrongful death cases are undeniably delicate; working with clients who have recently lost someone they cared about requires the experience that only veteran legal professionals can possibly have. With years of experience handling wrongful death lawsuits, our attorneys approach every case with sensitivity and compassion. Our goal is to recover compensation from the person responsible for your loved one’s death – and we will use our extensive resources and focused determination to pursue justice on your behalf.

Recovering Damages in a Wrongful Death Case

Although it’s impossible to attach a dollar amount to someone’s life, families of wrongful death victims deserve financial compensation for their loss. Our legal team pursues reimbursement for medical bills, funereal expenses, the victim’s loss of income and benefits, loss of companionship and consortium, pain and suffering, and mental anguish. We handle the logistics of your case, leaving you and your loved ones to tend to personal matters.

Contact Our Wrongful Death Attorneys

    About 4 months ago my wife got a job that came with housing. After going over all details and making plans for about 4 months prior to moving with management we packed up our whole lives, our pets, dropped some side jobs we had, and moved … More to the property where the job was located. After a few weeks things started getting very strange with management and "team" and after 2 full months everything that was planned in detail prior to moving to this property fell apart. After trying to discuss in person with management and then trying to discuss through email with management my wife was fired and we were given 5 days to pack up and leave the property. We had to start our lives over again. We immediately contacted Vlasac & Shmaruk LLC and worked with Ryan Getz & David Cassidy who are absolutely incredible at what they do! They were able to help us get off the property in a reasonable way and receive a settlement for all trouble caused by this "business". This was an incredibly stressful and scary situation but David and Ryan stayed in contact with us, were extremely patient, professional, soothing and just overly fantastic. If you are having any type of issue with an employement situation and being treated unfairly I highly recommend working with Ryan & David! I am so thankful they were able to take our case and help us through that mess. This was our first time having to hire legal help and I am just so grateful we found David and Ryan. In the future should we need any additional legal help we will absolutely be contacting them again. Thank you both so much!

    My wife and I were involved in a motor vehicle accident. Vlasac and Shmaruk took care of everything. They walked us through the process and took care of all the paperwork. They reached a settlement and we were happy. Glad to put that … More behind us and glad we used Vlasac and Shmaruk to help us get the money we needed for a new car and to get our medical bills paid. Thanks for everything you did!!!!
