Wrongful Death & Serious Injury Attorneys

When the Worst Happens, People Turn to Kreindler & Kreindler

Since 1950, we represent families following wrongful deaths and we seek to find the person or entity responsible for the victim’s death. We find the cause of the accident and identify the responsible person or entity. We then seek the highest amount of compensation for our client and work to ensure that a similar accident never happens.

Kreindler cases arise from wrongful deaths or serious personal injuries. Choosing the right law firm for these cases is a critically important decision because the stakes are high.

Carbon Monoxide Poisoning From Keyless Ignitions

With the ‘keyless ignition’ feature on modern cars, it’s too easy to accidentally leave the car running in the garage after coming home. Managing Partner Noah Kushlefsky has handled tragic cases in which people have died in their homes while their luxury car quietly idled in their enclosed garage. Noah has since made it his mission to have an automatic engine shut-off switch added to all new cars.

Additionally, Noah filed a public comment urging the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration to implement an automatic shut-off for any vehicle left running for a period of significant inactivity.

Kreindler Settles $3.75 M Civil Rights Lawsuit 

A Framingham Police SWAT team descended on the home of Eurie Stamps to serve a search warrant for his 20-year-old stepson. Despite Mr. Stamps’ immediate compliance with the officers’ commands to lie on the floor with his hands above his head, one officer disengaged the safety on his assault-style rifle and aimed the weapon at Mr. Stamps’ head. The weapon accidentally fired and killed Mr. Stamps. Following years of litigation, Kreindler attorneys Anthony Tarricone and Joe Musacchio were able reach a settlement with the Town of Framingham and its insurer on behalf of the Stamps family.

Kreindler Litigates $20k Demand Letter Into $1.1m Judgment for Client

When a Florida woman was seriously injured in an auto accident, an insurance company improperly ignored Kreindler’s demand letter that they pay our client’s $20,000 policy limit. Kreindler pursued the case throughout a complex series of events that involved showing bad faith on the part of the insurer and in the end, Kreindler was able to secure a judgment of $1.1 million on behalf of the injured woman.

Some of our most successful cases have involved complex and unique legal challenges that had dissuaded other law firms from accepting them.

These calculations include compensation for current and future medical expenses, pain and suffering, other non-economic damages, loss of wages, and impact on daily living. In the case of fatal accidents, we show all the ways that your loss has, and will in the future, impact your family. 

Financial compensation may come from a successful court judgment or settlement. Defendants often agree to settle for an appropriate amount, which we negotiate on your behalf. Getting to that point typically involves intricate legal strategies and arduous research to counter the strenuous efforts of the defendant’s legal team.

What should I do after a serious accident or a fatality in my family?

It’s important to contact an attorney as soon as possible for guidance. The earlier the lawyer can begin investigating, the more information they can gather to help ensure a positive legal and financial outcome.

It’s advised that you don’t agree to a financial settlement from the responsible party before talking with your attorney. Such settlements may be far below what you rightly deserve.
