Wrongful Death

Our New York wrongful death attorneys have a combined 40+ years of litigation experience. We use every resource at our disposal to effectively and efficiently resolve your wrongful death case.

Wrongful death is the death of a person caused by the negligence of another person or entity.

According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), more than 39 wrongful deaths occur each year per 100,000 people in the United States. Among the nearly 121,000 annual deaths in America resulting from unintentional injury accidents, roughly 33,700 deaths are caused by motor vehicle collisions, 33,040 deaths from poisoning, and 26,000 deaths from slip and fall/trip and fall accidents. Unfortunately, wrongful death is more common than we wish to believe.

We Know Your Rights and You Should Too!

New York State’s wrongful death statutes allow dependents and beneficiaries (i.e. close relatives) to sue negligent parties responsible for the death of a family member. A wrongful death lawsuit may seek economic damages, such as compensation for medical, nursing, funeral expenses, and loss of future income or support, as well as non-economic damages such as personal pain and suffering. There are important procedural steps that must be taken in order to receive full and fair compensation for these claims and cases.
