Wrongful Death

631-938-6543

Under New York law, the spouse, children, and in some cases, parents, have legal rights when a loved one wrongfully dies. Surviving family members can make a survivor's claim, which is a claim for monetary loss, when they were economically impacted by the loss of someone who was providing them with support. The estate of the deceased person can bring a conscious pain and suffering claim for the actual pain and suffering the deceased person had from the time of the  accident to the time of their death. 

Wrongful death is its own claim which can be brought with a number of other negligence claims such as for a slip and fall, a car accident, negligence by a nursing home, or a doctor's malpractice. 

Potential Compensation

  • Funeral arrangements
  • Medical bills
  • Loss of companionship
  • Pain and suffering
