New Bedford Wrongful Death
New Bedford's oceanfront location is central to the city's culture. New Bedford is best known for its fishing port and its history as a whaling-era seaport, and today the New Bedford Whaling Museum allows visitors insight into this rich history. With nearly 100,000 residents, it is the sixth largest city in the state, and its fishing and manufacturing industries continue to make the city thrive today. In addition to history, New Bedford offers residents and visitors a wide variety of educational, employment, and recreational activities. The city has campuses for the University of Massachusetts Dartmouth as well as Bristol Community College. With waterfront views, yacht clubs, and recreational boats, it offers gorgeous views and plenty of outdoor leisure. Sometimes, however, things may go awry and New Bedford residents may need a skilled lawyer.
Wrongful death claims can stem from a wide variety of accidents. Most commonly, wrongful death cases arise from car and truck accidents, defective products, medical malpractice, construction site accidents, and a host of work-related accidents. Regardless of the cause of the accident, however, the New Bedford wrongful death lawyers at Altman & Altman, LLP are here to explain in detail your legal options, help you decide if a wrongful death lawsuit is the best choice for your family, guide you through the entire process-from complaint to court-and represent your interests to the best of our ability.
The unexpected death of a friend or family member is an incredibly stressful and emotional experience for all parties. At the Greater Boston law firm of Altman & Altman, LLP, conveniently located in Boston and Cambridge, our New Bedford wrongful death attorneys understand that even the best settlement can never fully fill the void of a tragic loss. However, wrongful death lawsuits allow the family of a person who passed away to gain monetary compensation for their loss by holding a person, company, or employee civilly liable for the death of another person. A strong settlement or verdict can give important financial assistance to a family that has lost a loved one, thereby reducing financial stress, due to another party's recklessness or negligence.

After an initial investigation of the scene of the injury, and examination of important evidence, our wrongful death attorneys will have a much clearer understanding of the case and can then recommend whether a lawsuit, mediation, arbitration or another course of action will be most appropriate. Whatever you decide, our lawyers will stand by your side every step of the way.
