New York & Long Island Wrongful Death Lawyers
When a person is killed as a result of another person’s negligent or reckless actions, it is referred to as a wrongful death accident. Because wrongful death accidents occur suddenly and unexpectedly, it is incredibly difficult for the surviving family members to cope. Although no amount of money can bring back or replace a lost loved one, New York law does provide some relief to the deceased’s surviving family members. If you have lost someone in your family in a wrongful death accident, an experienced New York wrongful death lawyer can help you recover financial compensation for both your economic and non-economic losses.
Wrongful death accidents can result from a wide range of personal injury accidents, including:
- Auto accidents
- Motorcycle accidents
- Trucking accidents
- Subway accidents
- Pedestrian accidents
- Bicycle accidents
- Dog bites
- Slip & fall accidents
- Medical malpractice
- Construction accidents
- Lead poisoning
In order to successfully file and win a wrongful death lawsuit, you must prove that the victim was killed as a result of another person’s negligence or recklessness. Once you have won your case, you are entitled to both economic damages and non-economic damages.
Economic damages are awarded to cover the cost of any medical treatment that was needed either after the accident or before death, lost future income, lost benefits, estate planning expenses, administrative expenses, funeral expenses, and attorney fees.
