We Will Help You Recover Compensation in a Wrongful Death Case
If your loved one died from injuries caused by a fire or explosion, please accept our heartfelt condolences. Our team will help you pursue compensation for damages related to their death, such as:
- Funeral arrangement expenses, including costs to bury or cremate your loved one
- Loss of financial support from your loved one
- Medical debts
- Loss of parental guidance if you are the decedent’s child
- Loss of consortium if you are the decedent’s spouse (These are the specific damages, recognized by law, that a person suffers when they lose their spouse.)
You could be entitled to other damages not listed here, which we will mention should we discover other applicable damages while reviewing your case. For these damages, you will have to pursue a separate claim or civil action referred to as “wrongful death,” which we will prosecute on your behalf if you decide to work with a lawyer from our team.

Fight for Your Compensation
As passionate advocates for injured workers, our team will fight for your right to recover compensation for several types of damages, including pain and suffering, medical bills, lost wages, and impaired quality of life.
Meet You Where You Are
If you are on Long Island or elsewhere in the New York metropolitan area, a member of our legal team will come to you if you are unable to make it to our office.
As part of building your case for you, we will investigate your accident and gather evidence, such as:
- Witness statements
- Photos or videos of the accident scene and your injuries
- Inspection documents
- Accident reports
- Medical reports
- Doctor reports
Should you discover evidence that might support your case, please be sure to inform our legal team. If it strengthens your claim, we will include it in your case file as we work to build the most compelling arguments possible on your behalf.
Work on a Contingency-Fee Basis
Our legal team works on a contingency-fee basis, meaning our law firm does not charge attorney’s fees unless we win you compensation for the accident. You won’t be expected to pay any upfront legal fees, and any fees you are expected to pay at the end of your case will be discussed before we begin work on your case.
This allows clients who are financially struggling because of their accident-related injuries to afford our legal services, especially because we take our fees out of the compensation award. So, you never have to pay out of your own finances. To learn more about our fee agreement, you can speak with a member of our team at Friedman & Simon, L.L.P., today.

The Statute of Limitations for Fire and Explosion Accidents
While employees who suffer injuries while working on the job in New York are eligible to recover compensation, there is a limited time for victims to file a lawsuit.
When did your fire or explosion accident occur? The time to file a lawsuit to recover compensation for your injuries, lost wages, and pain and suffering may be running out. Our legal team will review your case to determine what its filing date is so that you do not miss the deadline.
The time limit that applies to your claims will depend on a variety of factors. As just one example, if a government agency contributed to the cause of the accident, the time limit is typically shorter than the deadline for cases against private individuals and entities.
For this reason, and others, (for example, the time-sensitive aspects of gathering evidence such as surveillance video and witness statements,) we urge you to contact us as soon as possible after the accident. The sooner you reach out to us the greater our opportunity to build the strongest case possible on your behalf.
