When someone dies, the profound loss their remaining family feels is overwhelming. Losing a loved one is a difficult process whether they suffer from a terminal illness or the die at the hands of a tragic accident. Both happen every single day, and no family finds it easy to cope with the devastating loss of a loved one. The days following the loss of a loved is difficult, and many family members are unsure what to do in the wake of their loss.

Wrongful Death Damages
When wrongful death occurs, a myriad of events is set into motion for the remaining loved ones of the deceased. The family loses a contributing member of the family and his or her income. Lost wages are a huge problem for many families, especially if insurance and other perks such as retirement were paid by this individual through their job. Families lose a companion, a protector, a loved one, and they probably have medical bills piling up from the medical treatment their loved one experienced before their death.
– Medical expenses
– Lost wages
– Loss of companionship
– Loss of financial support
– Funeral expenses
Each of these financial damages are owed to the victims of a wrongful death lawsuit. If someone else caused the accident or event that took the life of your loved one, you have a case. Our experienced attorneys go over the reports, the photos of the scene, witness statements, and any other evidence presented in this case, and they look for anything that determines fault. The insurance company of the at-fault party then pays the cost of these damages.
New York law requires all wrongful death lawsuits are filed in a timely fashion. This is two years. You have two years from the date of death to file a complaint, though many families neglect to do so. The idea of going through the death of someone they loved during the investigation and the entire lawsuit process is too much to bear, and many families choose to forgo this process.
