Holding the Responsible Parties Accountable for Your Family’s Tragic Loss
If you have lost a family member in a construction accident, auto accident, building accident or any other accident, you may have a wrongful death claim against the responsible party. Under New York law, survivors and heirs can pursue compensation for damages such as:
- Loss of income and financial support
- Loss of services
- The deceased person’s pain and suffering from the time of the accident until their death
- Medical expenses
- Funeral expenses
A wrongful death claim also gives you the opportunity to establish exactly what happened to your loved one and potentially prevent the same sort of tragedy from happening to other families. Our attorneys can advise you on how a wrongful death claim may serve and protect your interests.
