Wrongful Death Attorney in NYC
Nothing hurts more than losing a loved one. It is a tragic fact that many wrongful deaths occur as a result of negligence. A wrongful death lawsuit can’t bring the person you love back, but it may win you compensation for your loss. When pursuing a case involving wrongful death, it’s important to have a compassionate and skilled attorney by your side. Our legal team understands that the unexpected death of a loved one often leaves behind family members and friends who are forced to pick up the pieces of a shattered life. Not only do they have to deal with the devastation of losing someone close, but they also have to secure their own financial future and handle the debt and expenses that are left behind.

What is Wrongful Death?
A wrongful death action arises when a person is killed as the result of negligence, product liability, or malice on the part of another person. Negligence might occur in a situation like an automobile or airplane accident, an accident at a workplace, or medical malpractice. The manufacturer of dangerous products might be strictly liable for deaths caused by faulty or unreasonably dangerous products, such as an unsafe automobile or drugs with dangerous side effects. Intentional violence that causes death can also be covered by a wrongful death lawsuit. In that situation, the person or persons responsible may also be prosecuted under criminal law. Close family members and sometimes other dependents can sue to recover damages that result from a wrongful death.
Recovering Compensation After a Wrongful Death
Families of the victim often feel pursing legal action will only increase their feelings of distress. Some families do not immediately realize the financial impact a wrongful death can have on their lives, so contacting a wrongful death attorney is always a good idea. Our attorneys understand the delicacy of wrongful death suits and will try to resolve the wrongful death lawsuit as quickly as possible in a sensitive, tactful manner.
Wrongful death suits can recover the expenses associated with the wrongful death itself, in addition to any loss of salary, benefits, pain and suffering, companionship, and other factors that will increase the burden on the family already suffering a grave loss. Since all wrongful death suits will differ, we can help you determine what compensation each family member can seek based on the relationship between the wrongful death victim and the individual wrongful death survivor.
