We Help Bring Closure To You And Your Family After Losing A Loved One
The death of a loved one is a profound and horrible event. At our firm, we have helped numerous families through their personal tragedies by pursuing the compensation they need to cover outstanding medical bills, debts, afterlife expenses and other expenses that arise.
As litigation lawyers experienced in wrongful death matters, we realize the importance of acting quickly and decisively to obtain a full financial recovery. Like other personal injury claims, a wrongful death case will follow a strict statute of limitations that may begin either at the time of death or when negligence or a wrongful act leading to death is identified.
Wrongful death cases are often very complex. When you sit down with us during a free initial consultation, we will listen closely as you share the details of your case. We will then explain your options and offer practical advice based on years of past experiences to help you make sense of your situation.
Do I Have A Case For Filing A Wrongful Death Claim?
In most cases, wrongful death suits are brought on behalf of a surviving spouse or children, or the surviving parents of a deceased child. In other instances, parents, siblings, children of deceased siblings, grandparents and their lineal descendants may choose to file a claim.
New York law allows claims for wrongful death under following categories only:
- Loss of reasonable expectancy of future support or voluntary assistance
- Loss of services in the home
- Loss of parental or grandparental care and guidance
- Loss of possible inheritance
- Reasonable funeral expenses paid by distributee
- Reasonable medical expenses incurred on behalf of the decedent
Our team understands that the emotional and financial hardship you are going through leaves little time for researching legal issues. That is why we do everything we can to remove the burden so you can take care of yourself and your family.
