Wrongful Death

Losing a loved one unexpectedly is a tragic, devastating experience. Sometimes your loss can be the result of someone else’s negligence. If it is, it’s times like these when families need an experienced New York wrongful death lawyer. One who is willing to fight with all of the resources at his or her disposal to make the lives of the deceased’s family whole again. It means providing clients with a constant shoulder to lean on through a very difficult period, and never walking away from the client even after the case is concluded.

Over the past 35 years, the New York wrongful death lawyers at Gurfein Douglas have amassed a winning record of settlements or judgments for our clients that have helped pay hospital bills, funeral and burial costs and, in some instances, compensation for the loved one’s lost wages and the loss of the loved one’s companionship. At Gurfein Douglas you can rely on the scientific training of our two partners touncover the often hidden technical details of your wrongful death lawsuit that the untrained eye might miss. With degrees in engineering and biology hanging on walls right alongside their law diplomas, Richard Gurfein and Preston Douglas are your Lawyers With An Edge when fighting.

At Gurfein Douglas, our New York wrongful death lawyers are prepared to handle any challenge, no matter how complicated, and any adversary, no matter how tough they think they are, to get your loved one the justice, and the compensation, they deserve!


Protecting your rights is not complicated or time consuming. Protecting your rights is our job. When you have been injured in an accident or by a defective product (such as a medical device or drug), protecting your rights is as easy as finding the right legal representative who knows the system and knows how to win your case.

Attorneys at Gurfein Douglas know what insurance companies look for in evaluating claims, how to make the most beneficial settlement offers and how to best prepare your case. Most other personal injury lawyers in New York simply do not have this kind of experience.


We have been leaders in these types of settlements; we are known by pharmaceutical companies, manufacturers, and their insurance companies and they know who they are up against. They know we will represent our clients fully and go to trial when necessary. Because of this, we often get you the largest possible settlement before trial. Not pennies on a dollar, but a meaningful settlement! If a fair settlement can’t be reached, we are the advocates you want in the courtroom.
